Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 Features The Last Guardian Easter Egg

by Kyle Hanson


Team ICO games are linked together to form a trilogy, but only in the most tenuous ways. The games seem to exist within the same universe, with references linking them. But the games don’t really fit into a definite timeline, at least without some heavy fan theorizing. But Easter Eggs don’t have to fit with the reality of the situation, and Shadow of the Colossus for PS4 has a really nice Easter Egg in it referencing The Last Guardian, the latest game in the Team ICO trilogy.

Without giving away too many spoilers, the Easter Egg is hidden within the forest near the main temple area. Head southwest toward the location of the 6th or 13th colossus. The small forest here where Agro slows to a trot is where the The Last Guardian Easter Egg hides. It’s tough to locate, but walk toward the south side of the forest and you should come across a dark cave. Hidden within is the Easter Egg, which you can see in the video below.

Spoilers to follow…’s the blue barrels from The Last Guardian. These treats were how you befriended and controlled Trico, the giant cat/dog/bird from Team ICO’s final game. You can’t pick it up or interact with it, but it’s a definitely cool treat for longtime fans to stumble across.

There could be more than this hidden within Shadow of the Colossus for PS4, so get out and get exploring. If you find something cool be sure to let us know in the comments below.
