Follow the Light to ICO Collection Bonus Content

September 21, 2011Written by Josh Fernandes

In just eight short days, Team ICO is releasing the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection for gamers who missed out on the titles the first time around or fans who want to experience the games all over again. It turns out this collection is more than just a HD touch-up, as it will also contain some special bonus material.

After ICO was released, Team ICO worked on a multiplayer game where groups of friends could hunt down giant creatures. The game, called NICO, was eventually scrapped and the work was incorporated into Shadow of the Colossus. The Team ICO Collection will ship with early concept videos for ICO, NICO, and Shadow of the Colossus, so gamers can get some insight into the development of all three of the developer’s previous games. There will also be two additional videos included with the game: a 12 minute look at SCEJ offices and an over 20 minute roundtable with Team ICO staff. The roundtable has the developers talking about difficulties they faced while making the games and includes Fumito Ueda, Lead Designer; Kenji Kaido, Line producer; and Junichi Hosono, designer. The video tour of SCEJ will include the publishers thoughts on working with Team ICO and their thoughts on the upcoming HD collection. Lastly, the collection will have all new, never before seen footage for The Last Guardian. Check out a sneak peak at some of the bonus content, below.
