Team ICO, the amazing development studio behind ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, has a lot of fans. Nearly all of those fans have been clamouring for an HD re-release for both of these PlayStation 2 gems. Sony did that for God of War I and God of War II so it seems likely that they’ll give the go-ahead for this.
The rumours of an HD Team ICO collection have been doing the rounds for a while now, but Wallmart may have just let the surprise slip: the Team ICO collection is available for pre-order with a release date of 01 April 2011.
There is no boxart up as yet, but you can check the listing here. Having never owned a PlayStation 2, I specifically hunted around for months to try and find a backwards compatible PlayStation 3 just so I could play Shadow of the Colossus and ICO. Despite the fact that I own the games already and have played them dozens of times, I’ll still buy the hell out of this re-release if Wallmart proves to be on the money.
