Shadow of the Colossus for PS4: Titans are the real deal!
Shadow of the Colossus
PlayStation®4 Ι Genre: Deep Emotional Adventure
In mythology, few beings can capture the imagination of the people more completely than the giants. Since the world creation, in many legends giant creatures, have appeared in all the cultures, tales of Titans, Cyclops, Gogmagog, Kua Fu, and many others have been told throughout the generations making them so popular even today.
The word “Giant” comes from the Greek “Gigantes” who were originally monstrous, and primitive creatures often portrayed with men’s bodies terminating in serpentine legs. Sons of Ge (“Earth”) and Uranus (“Heaven”), many of them were believed to lie buried under mountains and normally indicates their presence by volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
Also in the art, Gigantomachy became a popular theme and it was interpreted as a symbol of the good over evil.
Shadow of the Colossus, originally released in 2005 for PS2, is a gaming masterpiece focused on this theme becoming one of the best and most beloved games ever developed by the great developers of Japan Studio, and now it’s ready to arrive on PS4 in a brand new shape.
Set in the wide, and almost unpopulated territory known as the Forbidden Land, you’re Wander, a young brave knight which destiny is to bring to life a girl named Mono, a mysterious maiden that has been sacrificed due to her cursed fate. Riding his loyal horse Agro, Wander must travel along the land to search and destroy the sixteen giants called Colossi, which are the only obstacles that can break the thin line between Mono’s life and death.
Universally considered both a prequel and a sequel of Ico, these two titles are strictly connected due to their horned main characters and the usage of a fictional language.
Featuring a deeply emotional story, a unique gameplay mechanic which combines mind-shaking puzzles and pure action elements, and a visually astonishing art style, the enhanced PS4 version of Shadow of the Colossus will let you travel across suggestive landscapes to fight against the legendary Colossi giants wielding magical weapons. With their mystical power of restoration, they’re the keys to bring back your loved one to life, use your combat skills, smartness, and strategic abilities, Mono is silently waiting for the fall of each of these behemoths.
With its “emotional bonds” Wander embarks on a puzzle-laden quest that eventually reveals why he is the way he is, and in doing so, he (and you) will change his outlook on reality.
The emotions and atmosphere that Shadow of the Colossus evokes is one that is seldom found in games today. More than a game this milestone is a wonderful fairy tale for all ages that can be lived both digitally and physically!
