ICO HD to be Playable on PlayStation Vita Via Remote Play Soon

September 3, 2012 Written by Zak Islam

Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida had teased fans earlier by tweeting an image of ICO running on the PlayStation Vita. He’s now confirmed that ICO‘s PlayStation 3 HD version will soon be playable via Remote Play on the handheld.

After posting the screenshot, seen above, with a Tweet that read “!?”, Yoshida then stated:

Sorry to tease you, I was play testing Ico HD Remote Play on PS Vita. We are almost ready with a patch. Beautiful on OLED.

More information on the Remote Play capability for Team Ico’s PlayStation 2 classic will be delivered “soon”, the Sony executive promised.

The picture in question showcased the game running on the PlayStation Vita via the feature, which is said to run at a resolution of 852×480 – the device’s native resolution is 960 x 544.

For some, it may not be too much of a surprise that ICO HD will be playable on the Vita soon; Sony had teased earlier this year that Remote Play support would be incorporated into titles such as God of War, God of War 2 and ICO successor Shadow of the Colossus.
