The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection (known in PAL regions as The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Classics HD) is a video game bundle that contains high-definition remasters of two PlayStation 2 games, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, for the PlayStation 3. Developed by Bluepoint Games, who assisted in the remastering alongside SCE Japan Studio and its division Team Ico, the bundle provides support for high-definition monitors, higher frame rates, stereoscopic 3D, and additional features for the PlayStation Network. The two games, while fundamentally different in gameplay and story, are thematically connected, with Shadow considered a spiritual sequel to Ico. Both games were critically acclaimed on their original release, while the remastered collection itself was positively praised by reviewers.

SPU MLAA patch

Thanks to Whatcookie, an SPU MLAA removal patch is available for this title. This can improve the framerate, but will cause the image to appear more aliased.
