Rejoice: Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Blu-Ray Confirmed
Wal-Mart may have spilled the beans by trying to sell the game before it officially existed, but that’s okay, because it officially exists now: Team Ico will release an Ico/Shadow of the Colossus two-pack for Playstation 3.
The two games were confirmed in this week’s issue of the Japanese video game magazine Famitsu. According to VG247, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are listed separately, which might mean they’ll be separated in Japan.
All speculation, rumored box art, Wal-Mart listings and my incessant wishing point to a combo pack coming to the U.S., however. Wal-Mart has it listed for $39.82, which means it’ll be $39.99 everywhere else, since Wal-Mart is where people go to save 17 cents.
The Ico/Shadow combo set will be an HD upscale similar to the God of War Collection Sony has already put out on PS3. Go ahead and restart your letter-writing campaigns to Roger Ebert touting the games’ artistic merits.
