“Shadow of the Colossus” was one of the most well-received games for the PlayStation 2 (PS2) game console. So much so that it was remastered with HD graphics to support 1080p capable displays and re-released on the PlayStation 3 (PS3). The game was praised for its emotional journey, minimalist design and immersive gameplay.

The recent Sony presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 in Los Angeles unveiled a new and possibly full remake of the classic game.


A quick review of the trailer for the PS4 version shows big improvements in graphics quality and high dynamic range rendering over the remastered PS3 Colossus game.
