Description

This collection bundles two games by Team Ico that were previously released for the PlayStation 2 platform:Both games are stored on a single Blu-ray disc and have been remastered for high-definition resolutions. The ICO version included is based on the original, enhanced European version, which includes Yorda's translation and a cooperative two-player mode. Other additional features include:
  • Two dynamic XMB themes based on scenes from both games
  • Support for stereoscopic 3D and the Dualshock 3 wireless controller
  • PlayStation trophies
  • Five behind-the-scenes videos featuring the making of both games and a sneak peek at the then upcoming Team Ico game The Last Guardian
The reworked games were also released separately but only as download through the PSN store. The European version comes with the original PS2 artwork from both titles on the reverse of the paper inlay, to swap them around for the classic look. The XMB themes and videos are not included on the disc but are redeemed through a one-time PSN voucher code as a download.
