Praise sweet zombie Jebus. We don't have to run any more 'ICO/Colossus rumoured for PS3 HD bundle' stories ever again. Huzzah! The rumours of the HD remakes of the PS2 classics have been floating around the land of the interwebs for months now and in this month's issue of Famitsu, the mag confirms they're happening. Interestingly, though, it's listed both games separately, which means you might yet be able to buy one or the other if you just want to murder massive monsters rather than drag a princess around by the hand like a small child throwing a strop. Cast your eyes down yonder, to see the European box art.

Interestingly, the above, which appears on this Swedish website and is able for pre-order for the reasonable sum(?) of 599 Swedish krona, seems to confirm that the games will be released as a bundle in Europe. This somewhat contradicts Famitsu listing the titles as two separate products. At any rate, Team Ico and Sony have finally answered our prayers, so all those goats we skinned and sacrificed didn't die in vain. Again, we say huzzah!
Oh, and we suspect final pricing details and the small matter of a release date for this bundle of nostalgic HD goodness will be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show in the next couple of days.
