At a conference held by Team ICO which Dale North has described as having, "all of Europe and North America inside," Fumito Ueda has given new details on the upcoming re-releases of Shadow of the Colossus and ICO. In addition to the visuals being upgraded to high-definition, the games will offer 3D support.
ICO is getting a bunch of additional love in the package. The version of ICO included in the collection is the European release, which features content previously unavailable in North America. In addition, the title has been reframed for widescreen which, from our man in the field, "looks so gooood."
Both games will come packaged on a single Blu-Ray disc and will be released in Europe and North America in Spring 2011. As for the terrible box art we received in North America? Ueda says that it's an issue that, "they are looking into, and will hopefully address." See that you do, Ueda. See that you do.
