Sony introduced its new line of retro games called â€œClassics HD,â€ which will feature remastered versions of popular PS2 games. God of War Collection was released late last year to critical success. It appears Sony could be readying Team ICOâ€™s masterpieces.
God of War Collection sold extremely well for its second outing on the PS3. The game comes packed with the first two God of War titles premastered in HD. The game has sold an astonishing 1.3 million units its second time around at retail. This bolds well for Sony as the PlayStation brand has a plethora of classic games that many gamers would like to see in HD glory.
Sony is already planning on bringing out The Sly Collection this November under the Classics HD line. There is also a rumor that Sony will be announcing a Classics HD for Shadow of the Colossus and ICO on the PS3.
According to Industry Gamers, Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida indicated that Team ICO games are at the top of the list for Classics HD.
As soon as we released God of War in an HD collection, there were people that were giving us suggestions. And ICO and Shadow of the Colossus is on the top of the list. And we are very aware and we want to see and play it in HD with a better framerate as well, so that’s something we are very, very aware of.
With French Amazon already listing a preorder for The Team ICO Collection, it sounds like this likely exists.
