Breathtaking new screens for Ico & Shadow of the Colossus HD and The Last Guardian

As hokey as this will sound, I think we’re all blessed as gamers to be getting Ico in HD, Shadow of the Colossus in HD and more importantly The Last Guardian. All three of those games have some of the most breathtaking visuals to ever appear in the history of video games and Ico & Shadow of the Colossus have really strong narrative elements which really add that extra dimension to things.

While we still haven’t gotten any new trailers yet, we do have a few new screenshots of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian thanks to Famitsu.  Sadly the screens for the Last Guardian don’t show any new environments, or at least ones that differ from what we saw previously, but the detail and sense of scale in the screens is still amazing.  It’s also incredible at how damn good Ico and Shadow of the Colossus look with their HD makeover.  I’m sure we’ll appreciate things more once we get a video, but I’m already blown away by how crisp everything looks and extra details that were added.

Concerning the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection, the word on the interwebs is that both games will feature additional content that wasn’t included in their original releases. What this content could be wasn’t specified but possibilities being thrown out include Shadow of the Colossus receiving some of the Colossi that were cut from the game.
