Sony's conference hit a high note with the announcement of a Shadow of the Colossus remaster coming from Japan Studio and Bluepoint games in 2018.

The announcement came in the form of a trailer showing off what looks like, at the very least, a major graphical overhaul of the original game. Several of the original game's colossi were shown in the trailer, with the hero clambering over the iconic giant, above.

This was one of Sony's bigger announcements of the show and came as a bit of a surprise. It's not yet known at the time of writing whether this version of Shadow of the Colossus is considered a remaster or a full remake of the original game. All we really know so far is that the new look for Shadow of the Colossus is breathtaking and the game will be coming to PlayStation 4 in 2018. We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available, although this post on the PlayStation blog suggests that might not be as soon as we'd like, promising more info in the coming months.
