Only time will tell.
The Shadow of the Colossus remake was certainly one of the best surprises of this year’s E3, and if the game’s creator has anything to say about it, the remake will be more than just a graphical update. Speaking to Eurogamer at the Gamelab conference in Barcelona, Fumito Ueda said he had submitted a list of changes to Sony.
Speaking through a translator Ueda said, ” “I transmitted my petition about the content and tuning but I don’t know the implementation will be what I told.” The translator iterated that it was, in fact, Ueda that wanted things changed and contacted Sony with his ideas. Unfortunately, they couldn’t share any information on just what those changes may be. “Those things of the remake that I would like to change, I can’t mention, because if I say one thing and in the final version that thing is not included, it’s a problem.” Unfortunately, any hopes of extra Colossi appearing in the remake were shot down in the interview.
Ueda’s involvement in the Shadow of the Colossus remake is minimal, and he reiterated to Eurogamer that he’s more focused on his new game. Bluepoint is working on Shadow of the Colossus for PS4, and they have a bit of a history with remasters and remakes. They were responsible for the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Remaster on PS3, the Nathan Drake Collection on PS4, and Gravity Rush Remastered.
The Shadow of the Colossus Remake is currently scheduled for release sometime in early 2018, exclusively on PS4.
