Sony Planning Special ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Event

Sony Planning Special ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Event

Do you love ICO? Do you love Shadow of the Colossus? What about both of them neatly stuffed into one happy little package? We know that the HD Collection is due out next month, but Sony is planning something bigger for a lucky few.

Titled a “Premium Event”, Sony will be inviting press and fans alike to join them in Tokyo in September 3rd to celebrate the release of the upcoming HD remake compilation. Aside from actually getting to play the HD remakes well before they release, attendees will be treated to a very special guest appearance by the games’ creator Fumito Ueda and listen to him speak a bit about his works.

Now, before you go booking your tickets to Japan, take note. The event is not open to the general public as it is being held at an undisclosed location and only 40 lucky members of the general public will be able to attend.

If you wish to be one of the 40 lucky few you must partake in Sony’s “Great Scene Sharing” campaign that Sony is holding for the two games. Basically, you have to introduce your favorite scene from each game via Twitter, Facebook, or Mixi. All those who enter will be given a special wallpaper as well as gain entry into the raffle for the event tickets.

Check out the official Campaign Page for official details. Warning… it’s in Japanese.
