Agarest War (2007) was Sequel to Agarest Zero (2009)

Ico and Wander are not the same character. Neither is Yorda and the dead woman on the alter. (Don't remember if she had a name.)

I think he did, also in SOTC if you ride to this area at the south west corner of the map, you'll see

What is wrong with people? I saw some stupid things on this thread that I never imagined I'd see anyone say...Here's the facts:

***MAJOR SPOILER***
Shadow of the Colossus is a prequel to ICO.

In Shadow of the Colossus, you play as Wander of whom is progressively possessed by Dormin. By the end, you become a colossus of shadows, but are sealed back in with a spell from a sealer. Whatever spell that guy thought he used, the shadow creature you'd become was compressed into a smaller package, a baby with horns. The events leading to ICO aren't completely revealed, but I posted this info in another thread just minutes ago so here I go again.

After Wander was revived as a baby with horns, it's to be assumed that he grew older, had children and they had horns. Later own, theirs had horns and so on. Eventually, there were boys with horns all around.

A queen of some foreign land did not want to die, she wanted to live eternally and rule eternally, so looked for a way to keep herself young. She found some information about the events that occurred with Wander and managed to create a spell where she would lose her humanity all for the sake of living eternally. Her spell required these boys with horns of whom the shadows lived within as sacrifices. Which is why the shadows your encounter in ICO have horns, they were all boys with horns once.

She would create a younger shadow being, in the form of a young girl, to keep a youthful and female body, and would use those shadows as sacrifices to transfer her soul into Yorda's body and take over. The shadows are to be used in a condensed form like Dormin was, a massive colossus of shadow.

So you see, the two games are completely connected. However, ICO takes place MANY generations after Shadow of the Colossus. This is to be assumed from how the queen seems to be relatively well-versed in how to reincarnate herself and how old she must have been by the time Ico shows up.

I feel like this fits best with my take on the events. The plots are so minimalistic that you can literally imagine any kind of story to connect them (which is why I love the story so much). Once, I came upon some kind of glitch, or maybe a visual pop-in, in the PS2 SotC. I spent hours trying to figure out if that was supposed to happen, or if I just witness a game error. Eventually, the shadowy figure became part of my story, and I wondered if Wander thought of it on his travels. Stuff like that make the story personal to me and my playthrough ... and that's why I like tying the two games together my own way. =)

While I don't exactly disagree with you here ... Ueda himself never explicitly laid out the fact that they are prequel/sequel. He simply refers to them as "spiritual successors." So you are free to interpret your own storyline between the two. I think you have struck upon the most accepted storyline ... but it is still open for interpretation. ^^

Bro you pretty much nailed the story as I've imagined it. Thanks for putting it into words.
