Shadow of the Colossus Sequel Reimagining Speculated Fumito Ueda

Shadow of the Colossus Sequel or ‘Reimagining’ Speculated by Fans

A sequel or reimagining of the legendary Shadow of the Colossus from Team Ico and game director Fumito Ueda is currently being speculated by fans who have gathered some evidence to suggest that the developer’s next game could be closely linked. Shadow of the Colossus launched in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 and is widely considered one of the greatest video games of all time.

A recent Reddit post from user shavemeback (nice name) compiled some evidence which makes a very compelling argument that GenDesign (the successor to Team Ico) might be in the process of developing a reimagined Shadow of the Colossus game or something very closely tied to it. The user first pointed to a teaser image shared by GenDesign back in 2018 which showed a girl on an altar, reminiscent of the scene from Shadow of the Colossus.

Dataminers digged into the data of the image and discovered that it was labeled “Beauty and the Beast.” Nomad Colossus, a well-known figure in the community who frequently shares new information and unused content for Shadow of the Colossus, recently revealed that “Beauty and the Beast” was the name of the original concept for Shadow of the Colossus. “Wander grew bigger each time he killed a colossus and would be transformed as punishment,” was the original idea and concept.

Nomad Colossus speculated that if this is true, then GenDesign could be updating the concept for its next game. Ueda’s quote on the original concept for “Beauty and the Beast” reads:

According to the Reddit user, Ueda said a part of him always wanted to use this concept which could give us a good indication that GenDesign’s next game might either be a sequel, reimagining or spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus. Of course, this is all merely speculation for now so we’ll just have to wait and see what the studio reveals as its next project.

Shadow of the Colossus was remade in 2018 by Demon’s Souls remake developer Bluepoint.
