Default Fumito Ueda Wants To See ICO and Shadow of the Colossus on PS3

Quote:
As part of an interview at this year's Tokyo Game Show, Team ICO leader Fumito Ueda took time to answer a few questions provided by the 1UP community, and the most popular of these was whether we might see his games ICO and Shadow of the Colossus released on PlayStation 3 in a combo pack similar to Sony's upcoming God of War Collection.

When asked, Ueda said he's all for the idea, and that he'd like to play the games on PS3 (as well as on PSP). "Initially, I didn't want to consider that," he pointed out. "I always thought they were designed for PS2 and should stay there. But lately, I've been thinking it would be nice to provide the games to other platforms to reach more users."

Ultimately, however, it seems that a re-release would need support from Sony executives. Presumably the same ones that decided to release the God of War Collection after hearing a lot of support for the idea from fans online, so if you want to see ICO and Shadow of the Colossus in HD, now would be the time to start talking up the idea.

Never played ICO or Shadow of Colossus, heard they were great but never got around to them. Hopefully this becomes true, so I can experience them in HD.

If it happens it will be awesome. I never did finish SotC, but Ico is one of my all time favorites.

I doubt this would be a complete remake, but even with sharpened up PS2 visuals, the games would definitely benefit from a smoother frame rate. SOTC in particular at 60 fps would be almost a new experience.

I'd say most fans of Ico are in it really for the atmosphere and the more cerebral, environmental, puzzle based gameplay. Another big draw to some (and turn off to others) is the plot that leaves much open to interpretation.

But yeah, by conventional gaming standards, you could say there's not a lot to love in the game. The characters aren't traditionally "well defined," the gameplay is slow, and designers emphasized weakness in the characters rather than empowerment, which runs counter to most western game design philosophy.
