Turn off the Lights

Details on the ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection

A new post on the official PlayStation blog outlines the bonus features that will be included on the Blu-Ray disc featuring the HD remasterings of two of the PS2's best games, including a newer look at their spiritual sucessor. I haven't exactly been jumping to buy games I've already played again, but some of the features here, along with getting to see two games with unique and remarkable art design with improved visuals, has me somewhat tempted.

There will be several videos on the disc, revealing behind the scenes footage from the creation of both games. There will also be a twenty minute roundtable discussion between a few of the biggest names who worked on the games, including creator Fumito Ueda, and a video that will show the inner workings of the studio, including brand new footage of The Last Guardian.

This is all in addition to stuff we already knew, like the fact that it has full 1080p graphics, 3D support, 7.1 surround sound, and dynamic themes for both games. And being a PS3 release, there are of course trophies for both games. The blog goes on to provide the full listing:
