E3 was home to the surprise announcement of a full remaster of the legendary Shadow of the Colossus and today, during the Paris Games Week PlayStation media showcase, we've come another step closer to its release. A new trailer showing off the colossus slaying in all of its visually impressive splendor comes with the news that Shadow of the Colossus will launch on February 6, 2018.
Shadow of the Colossus was of the highest tier of games on PlayStation 2, providing players with one of the most visually appealing adventure-puzzler experiences that generation. It exuded style through a very minimalist design in its open-world and it's going to be pretty exciting to return to that world with updated visuals.
The scale of Shadow of the Colossus has been glimpsed in other games since its release, but nothing so majestic from open to close. The indie experience Praey for the Gods may be the closest we come, but we'll have the original king in our hands in early 2018.
