Shadow of the Colossus is one of the most technically marvelous game to come out this generation. Comparing the original game to the modern release shows how far gaming has come, but it also shows that Shadow of the Colossus remains one of the best games ever made. Thanks to strong gameplay, an emotionally charged story, and incredible art design. Now the studio behind the remake is hard at work with another remake.

In a conversation with Digital Foundry, Bluepoint’s president Marco Thrush was asked if the new art team members hired for Shadow of the Colossus would be used for an original game. Thrush stated:

“Well, we could but we’re doing another remake. This project served us as a great point of growing the art team to the point where we can take on a full triple-A game major scope of art content. So now our next step is, let’s improve the art pipeline, let’s improve the engine, let’s improve workflow for artists, let’s grow on the art side some more to handle our next project because it’s a bit bigger. And our next focus is, all right, let’s work on design and add new stuff to get to the next remake, because now that can be our sole focus of making sure that’s where we put the time and everybody else, they’re already at a level where we can perform.”

It’s interesting to see that remakes are becoming much more in demand. Not only with Shadow of the Colossus but Crash Bandicoot. Perhaps it’s a remake of Ico?

Shadow of the Colossus is now available for PS4, PS3, and PS2.
