ICO, SotC Remakes Receive Japanese Dates And Prices
Unfortunately, the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection has been delayed.
But at the very least, Japanese gamers will get these high-definition remakes for the PlayStation 3 later this year.
According to Andriasang, the remakes will be sold separately in Japan on September 22. Each game will be sold for ¥3,980 (about $50), or consumers can also purchase both titles in a single package for ¥6,980 ($87). The latter seems to be the superior deal, especially because it comes with a 100-page booklet and dynamic PS3 themes. Plus, if you can read Japanese, you might want to visit the freshly opened websites for these HD overhauls. We've said it before and we'll say it again: we're talking about two of the greatest games of the PS2 generation and indeed, any generation. We consider the remakes a must for any collection.
And if you haven't played either yet, you really can't pass it up. Let's just hope the Collection isn't too far off for North American gamers. Same goes for The Last Guardian, by the way.
