Shadow of the Colossus remade in 4K

Shadow of the Colossus, one of the most beautifully gloomy games of all time, is being remade in 4K. Here's the trailer.

Unlike the hideous new edition of Secret of Mana, they didn't fool with the artwork. It still has that dreamy, dialogue-free crepuscular atmosphere to it.

I'm eager to experience it again, but something is lost in the high-definition technical polish. It's too focused, too plastic, too obvious where the seams and joints are. It reminds me of what new LCD displays do to old movies, sharpening edges and filling in 120 frames per second that were never supposed to be there, making everything look like morning television.

You can preorder Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 at Amazon.
