Japanese HD Ico and Shadow of the Colossus trailers are unsurprisingly gorgeous

Ever wanted to see Team Ico’s breathtakingly beautiful output without the PS2’s trademarked fog of last-gen war? Well, you’re chance is NOW, with two new trailers for the upcoming ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection in a language most of you won’t be able to comprehend.

Of the two trailers, Ico emerges as the most impressive, due to its tendency to use more light and a larger color palette.

Now, Shadow of the Colossus ain’t no slouch in the visual department, either. It’s just that the giant-killing epic stuck with darker colors and grayer grays for its motif, and now you've got to settle to viewing the upgrade encoded in Flash, or whatever the hell our video player does... But oh man, you should’ve seen ‘em in the raw format they were sent to us in!

Above: See?! More like this

And Sony, after you're done with Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, we've got a list of other games that could use an HD makeover. You're welcome!

    I've only ever seen this game being played but I soon hope to get my hands on this and experience it for myself. Also would be happy giving its creators my money. Well deserved.

    And the want for a ps3 grows.

    More and more I regret my decision to own a 360...

    YES! :D

    I cry myself to sleep every night because I can't play this game. Still can't.

    SotC will make me buy a PS3. It's rare to find a game that does so much with so little.

    Very excited about Shadow of the Colossus, Dont really care about ICO at all. Didnt like it when it originally released on PS2.
  • taokaka - July 5, 2011 10:46 p.m.

    I need this now
  • Turboash - July 5, 2011 10:44 p.m.

    Typo in first paragraph, Chris. "You're chance". Not that I'm a pedant or anything.
  • Letter11 - July 5, 2011 10:22 p.m.

    I shamefully have yet to play either of these games, so I'm really looking forward to this.
  • ChickenFillet5140 - July 5, 2011 9:59 p.m.

    Can not wait for this!!! I've played both these games more times than any man should and I'm not bored yet. Ico was also the game that finally conviced my dad that games can be more than mindless action.
  • ChrisCultista - July 5, 2011 9:59 p.m.

    HOLY CRAP! I see the difference! It so beautiful! Might consider getting a PS3, refurbished, just for this. Weird that a remake of a PS2 game seems better than most of the other stuff on the PS3...
  • BroGamer - July 5, 2011 9:55 p.m.

    I've been keeping my eyes on this since the first announced it. These HD games will be great.
