Shadow of the Colossus Remake Features a New Control System

Posted on Nov 1 2017 - 3:30pm by Gaf Hussain

Shadow of the Colossus is in my top 3 games of all time, and if i was to be extremely nit-picky about any negatives it would be the controls. They were always mapped oddly.

Triangle was used for jump simply because it was located at the top of the controller, however the majority of games use X for jump.

So as soon as the remake was announced i asked myself two questions, one was will it have DLC or new Colossi, and the other was if it would have the ability to change the control scheme.

Recent gameplay footage from Paris Games Week 2017 showed the button prompts have changed!

I wonder if you can map the control any way you like, or if there are set configurations you can select.

Shadow of the Colossus’ release date was announced yesterday and will be coming on the 7th of February 2018, and i can’t wait!
