Shadow of the Colossus Gets A Comparison Trailer; Reveals Special Edition Box Set



Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio Executive Producer Yasutaka Asakura took to the PlayStation Blog to give us a better look at the fine details of the Shadow of the Colossus remake.


First, here’s a look at a comparison trailer showing the original PS2 version, PS3 version, and the remake on PS4 Pro.


Though we have repeatedly confirmed that Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 is a full, ground up remake of the all-time classic, it is a fact that is harder to communicate via text or stills. To make it more clear, we have created a comparison video, which you can watch above, that shows the amount of work that has gone into this project to fully leverage the horsepower of modern gaming consoles.


PlayStation 4 Pro users will get to take advantage of two play options:

  • Cinematic – Emphasizes image quality, and for owners of compatible 4K HDR displays, boasts a beautiful dynamic 4K image targeting 30 fps
  • Performance – delivers an extremely fluid frame rate targeting 60 fps



Lastly, here’s a look at the Shadow of the Colossus Special Edition Box Set that was revealed, and it’ll be available for $49.99. It comes with the following:


  • Steelbook Collector’s Case with outer sleeve
  • Artist Postcards
  • Printed Manual
  • In-game Digital Extras (Ancient Bow, Cloak of Fate, “Spotted Steed” Agro skin)
  • Two Custom PS4 Themes
  • Colossi Avatar Set for PS4
  • Physical World Map
  • Colossi Stickers.


Shadow of the Colossus releases on February 6, 2018 for PlayStation 4.
