ICO & Shadow of the Colossus HD confirmed

The latest issue of Famitsu is, as usual, in the hands of some a bit early and information which will no doubt be officially announced at Tokyo Game Show is starting to hit the net. Good information. Like, for example, confirmation that versions of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus with a coat of high-definition paint will be hitting the PlayStation 3.

There’s no firm release date at this time. Curiously, Famitsu has separate information boxes for each of the two titles, suggesting that the games will be released individually in Japan, as opposed to the collection we’ve seen on offer at online retailers in the United States.

Finally, eh? It was a year ago that Fumito Ueda mentioned a desire to expand the audience for the games by putting it on the PS3 at last year’s TGS and the rumors have swirled about ever since. I know it’s something I’ve personally been wishing for and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
