Shadow of Colossus for PlayStation 4 will indeed be a remake with new visuals and updated controls, Sony has confirmed.
In an interview with Famitsu (translation via Siliconera), Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida clarified that the upcoming PS4 game is not merely a remaster. "It is a remake," he said. "The game content is the same as the original version, but all the assets are being remade."
With regard to the game's content, Yoshida said everything from the PS2 original will be included, confirming, "it's the same." That said, the controls of Shadow of Colossus are being updated for PS4 to offer a modern feel. "Player preferences for controls and such change over time, so we're working on implementing a more modernized way to play," he said.
