Shadow of the Colossus remake announced for the PlayStation 4

Sony announced some really exciting news during their E3 2017 press conference (at least in the eyes of this journalist who sees it as the best game ever made, but I'm a tad biased).

Shadow of the Colossus will be receiving a full remake for the PlayStation 4!

The publisher didn't share any additional details about the project other than SCE Japan is still apparently working on it with the help of Bluepoint Games, who handled the PlayStation 3 remaster. Here are the details from the PlayStation Blog update:

The unexpected reveal of Shadow of the Colossus during PlayStation’s E3 2017 Media Showcase was a rare moment of true surprise and delight. Developed by Bluepoint Games and JAPAN Studio, Shadow of the Colossus looks to be lovingly rebuilt for PS4, making one of the most artistic, emotional, and celebrated games ever made available for a new audience.

The fact that Shadow of the Colossus remains so entrenched in the modern gaming discourse is a lasting monument to the game’s singular vision. If this reintroduction can introduce that wonder to a new generation of gamers, it’s a win for the medium as a whole.

The remake is set to be released sometime in 2018. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer above, and some screenshots below!
