We know the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection will boast high-definition and 3D. But there's something else…
Why, Trophy support, of course! According to a Dengeki Online interview with creator Fumito Ueda at TGS (as cited at Andriasang ), Trophies will be coming to both games when they're re-released for the PlayStation 3 next year. Also, Ueda made it clear that at first, they weren't planning on implementing 3D but suddenly, they "determined compatibility would be a possibility." And if you're wondering, 3D remains a possibility for The Last Guardian , too. Said Ueda:
"We're still looking into this. In its current state, we've pretty much used up the full system specs. However, we'd like people who don't normally play games to play, so if it can reach these people, we'll think about it. With this meaning, it's not the case that there is absolutely no plan for support."
He doesn't rule out PlayStation Move support, either. But about those Trophies…we're already thinking about a few possibilities. Let's see, there might be timed Trophies – i.e., "Take Down Colossi #5 in under 5 minutes" – and maybe conditional ones like, "Take Down Colossi #11 without falling off once." Any other ideas? Maybe for ICO ?
