Earlier today, keen-eyed fans noticed that Sony had slyly registered a trademark for Shadow of Colossus a few hours ahead of its E3 2017 press conference, highly suggesting that a either a remaster or a sequel would be on the cards for tonight. As it turns out, what looks to be a Shadow of the Colossus remake was indeed revealed by Sony, with veteran studio Bluepoint working with Japan Studio towards what is presumably a 4K-powered recreation of one of PS2 era’s best titles.
Sony officially confirmed that the game won’t be releasing this year, and instead offered 2018 as a general release window for the title. Sony had previously added a remaster of Shadow of the Colossus to its PlayStation 3 library back in 2011, and now 5 years later it seems like gamers are for yet another nostalgic treat involving the title.

The Shadow of the Colossus remake was the first older entity to draw massive applause from the fans, so it looks like Sony is certainly on to something with its endeavor.
