ICO/Shadow of the Colossus PS3 remakes confirmed by Sony, and we've just got something in our eye, honest

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.

Above: There is a God... and his name is Wander

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.

    Awesome! And thank God they're using the Japanese box art for Ico. I usually like American box art better than Japanese box art, but the original here in the states was awful. It looked like one of those bargain-bin titles you can get for $3.00 at Wal-Mart. Anyways, I can't wait. I'm glad it's coming out earlier than The Last Guardian. That way I can take my time playing through them.

    FUCK YEAH! I'm totally buying this on release day. Just the thought of playing these games on my big HD TV makes me drool all over my keyboard. If there is any game that will look absolutley kickass in HD then its these two beauties. I was thinking about playing through SOTC again for maybe the 7th or 8th time, but I'll just wait for this. Fanboy-gasm.

    since they're older games, they should easily be able to be made in 3d. That would be awesome to see a colossus like that!!! And it could be turned off for those that don't have the right tv set, or 3d haters...

    I hope they keep the European Box-art for the US release, instead of the dark, action-oriented covers they had the US
