Shadow of the Colossus remake gameplay and details
Rather than a sequel, this is a remastered version so the main difference is that the graphics have been updated to modern standards. The above trailer gives you a good idea of how far things have come since 2005 and the PS2 and the remake has an overhauled look and feel.
As you’d expect from remastered version, the elements of the original game are very much intact. So that includes colossi beasts, Wander and Argo the horse. Shadow of the Colossus is an exploration game like
Zelda but there are no dungeons or even characters to engage with.
There was an updated version of the game released on PS3 in 2011 but this will be a much bigger renovation. The Shadow of the Colossus remake is being developed by Japan Studio and Bluepoint Games, which worked on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
