Original Director of Shadow of the Colossus Talks About Remake
Original Game Director Fumito Ueda Discusses Shadow of the Colossus Remake
The original director of Shadow of the Colossus, Fumito Ueda has spoken about the remake being worked on by Bluepoint Games.
In an interview (via a translator) with Eurogamer, Ueda revealed that he submitted proposals for changes to Sony but isn’t sure they will be in the final game:
“I transmitted my petition about the content and tuning but I don’t know the implementation will be what I told.
“It’s he who wants to change something,” his translator clarified, “but he doesn’t know if it is possible to change all of the things he wants to change.”
Ueda is remaining tight-lipped on what those changes were but did confirm that there would be no extra enemies in the game such as those that were cut in original development, keeping the number at 16.
A Shadow of the Colossus remake was revealed at E3 this year and was one of the surprising announcements out of Sony’s showcase.
The Shadow of the Colossus remake is out next year for PlayStation 4.
Meanwhile Ueda is busy working on a new game and is hoping to finish this particular title faster than The Last Guardian which in Ueda’s own words had “many problems” in development.
Indeed, The Last Guardian is one of the most turbulent development periods for any game in recent memory switching platforms and being delayed many times before finally releasing in December 2016.
What do you think about the Shadow of the Colossus remake? Are you excited to return to the game or is it your first time?
