Players of the beloved 2005 classic Shadow of the Colossus are in for a treat next week as the upcoming PS4 remake is on the way, and a new trailer has arrived to give players a look at the story, whether you’re experiencing it for the first time or the fifth.

Sony has released a new story trailer for Shadow of the Colossus that should give players a good idea of what to expect from the game, and will likely provide some fond feelings for those that played the title originally to see it in its newly-remastered form.

Specifically, the trailer highlights the journey of the game’s main character, Wander, as he seeks to take down the 16 colossi to save a young princess. However, the trailer also captures the melancholy nature of the story, and the fact that the journey that Wander takes on may not be as noble as it all seems.

Shadow of the Colossus will release for PS4 on February 6th, 2018 – for a closer look at the upcoming remake, you can check out the new story trailer or read our full review for the game.
