Japanese retailers and import shops are showing a new release for Team ICO's PlayStation 2 classic Shadow of the Colossus, due to hit Japan early next year. With The Last Guardian coming "soon", is this a good sign?

Because Shadow of the Colossus has already hit Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's "The Best" line of budget re-releases, so a re-issue means... well, we're not sure. That they're simply out of copies and that someone in Japan is hungry for Colossus slaying on the cheap?


The bad news is that this is not a a God of War Collection-style release for the PlayStation 3, giving ICO and Shadow of the Colossus a high-def once-over to drum up interest in The Last Guardian. But it may be a good sign that Sony sees value in Team ICO lead Fumito Ueda's desire to give the first two games in the series a PlayStation 3 caliber presentation.
