Sony Computer Entertainment America announced the release of a must-have bundle for Playstation 3 today, at least for newer gamers who might not have heard of or seen these titles yet. The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus collection brings together two highly acclaimed titles from Playstation 2 to the world of high definition with remastered graphics, stereoscopic 3D support, 7.1 surround sound, bonus video content and more.
For those unfamiliar with the games, ICO is a part action-adventure, part puzzle game that follows the story of a strange-looking boy as he attempts to help a mysterious princess escape from a maze-like castle. It’s a unique title with a minimalist style for both the look and the narrative. Meanwhile, Shadow of the Colossus is a more expansive quest that follows an anonymous protagonist as he fights to bring a girl back to life by defeating sixteen colossal (get it?) beasts. The Collection features both games, as well as the full ending to ICO, which, apparently, was never released in North America before today. The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection is available now, for $39.99 USD/CAD.
