Fumito Ueda “Keen” on Ico Collection a la God of War Collection
So God of War Collection was announced in its 720p goodness with AA, trophies and a God of War 3 demo and the gamers have rejoiced. What if the same thing was done for ICO and Shadow of the Colossus? Ueda has expressed his interest in doing this exact project and it seems he knows that gamers would probably be just as excited if not more for this collection then the God of War one. I missed the Team Ico games for some odd reason when they came out so I would surely pick this up.
Team ICO’s Fumito Ueda, creator of ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and the upcoming The Last Guardian, is “all for the idea” of such a collection, adding “he’d like to play the games on the PS3 (as well as on the PSP)”.
“I always thought they were designed for PS2 and should stay there. But lately, I’ve been thinking it would be nice to provide the games to other platforms to reach more users.”
“I do have an interest in that,” Ueda said during our Friday chat. “Next week, I’ll have a meeting [about the possibility] … But it might not be so easy, because, with both titles we really stretched the limits of the PS2. It’s complex. So it’s not such an easy transfer to the PS3. But I want to discuss it.”
Looks like the chances of this got real a little bit.
