Trailers (SotC)

Here is a selection of trailers made for the PS2, PS3 and PS4 releases of Shadow of the Colossus. Many selected are the Japanese versions because they better convey the soul and artistry of the game.

The first section has official trailers. The second section is comprised of FAN-MADE trailers, using in-game, live action and hand-drawn footage. The fan trailers are ordered by platform (PS2, PS3, then PS4).
