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.
