Sony takes us behind the scenes of the Shadow of the Colossus remake

Sharper shadows

The Shadow of the Colossus remake is nearly upon us, so Sony is amping up the hype train by taking us behind the scenes with Bluepoint Studios’ work. While each video is short, you do get to understand how Bluepoint approached the project and what its decision was for tackling such a beloved game.

What is a real treat is the interview with composer Kow Otani. Shadow of the Colossus has one of the greatest soundtracks ever recorded, regardless of medium, so it is very intriguing to learn about why he chose specific instruments and what his score was trying to evoke. I really wish we could get a half hour video with just him, but I’ll take what I can get.
