Shadow of the Colossus Creator Wants a Few Changes for the PS4 Remake
One of the best surprises of E3 2017 was the reveal of a brand new Shadow of the Colossus remake by developer Bluepoint Games. The same team that headed up the brilliant PlayStation 3 version seems to be well-suited to the task of bringing the beloved game to the PlayStation 4. One person who hasn’t been brought back into the fold is original Colossus creator Fumito Ueda, having not worked on the series since the original PlayStation 2 iteration. Recently, Ueda sat down with Eurogamer to discuss the upcoming remake, revealing that he sent Sony a list of changes he’d like to see put into the final product. Speaking through a translator, Ueda said:
“I transmitted my petition about the content and tuning, but I don’t know the implementation will be what I told.”
The translator further explained, “It’s [Ueda] who wants to change something, but he doesn’t know if it is possible to change all of the things he [wants] to change.” The Shadow of the Colossus creator declined to mention what the requests about the upcoming PlayStation 4 remake were and went on to say that he can’t go into specifics. On the off-chance Sony doesn’t implement any of his suggestions, Ueda expressed that he doesn’t want to create false expectations about the project, adding that it would present “a problem” if he did. Ueda makes a fair point as we’ve seen what could happen when games fail to meet certain expectations.
What changes do you think Ueda has in mind? Could Shadow of the Colossus use a few updated story or gameplay tweaks, or is it a masterpiece that should never be changed?
