Sony has confirmed that the upcoming Shadow of the Colossus game for PlayStation 4 is a complete remake and not a remaster as reported on previously.

The remake was announced during Sony's E3 2017 press conference by showing a teaser trailer earlier this week. It was assumed that the game would be a remastered edition of the original, but Sony has now confirmed that the game is in fact a complete remake.
The game's storyline focuses on a young man named Wander who enters a forbidden land. Wander must travel across a vast expanse on horseback and defeat sixteen massive beings in order to restore the life of a girl named Mono.

The game is unusual within the action-adventure genre in that there are no towns or dungeons to explore, no characters with which to interact, and no enemies to defeat other than the colossi.

The remake is being developed by Bluepoint Games. The studio was also responsible for the PlayStation 3 version of the game that featured high-definition graphics, content previously missing from the North American version, PlayStation Network Trophies, and 3D support.

Shadow of the Colossus launches is expected to launch in mid 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4.

This comment has been removed. @: Wasn't Ico a lot less popular though? Thats probably why they chose Colossus instead.
