Shadow of the Colossus has added a new set of collectibles that were not a part of the original game. These are the coins that can be discovered through the open world and there is a limited number of them to collect, however there was no final amount available when the game launched which led many to speculate what secret will be unlocked once the full set of coins are found.
This all seems to have been clarified now that the game is officially out worldwide. This was discovered by YouTube user PS4Trophies who was on the hunt for all the coins that can be collected in order to unlock a potential secret. Before you read any further, keep in mind that the secret might be spoiled so stop reading if you want to discover it yourself.
There are a total of 79 coins that can be found throughout the open world of Shadow of the Colossus. One you are able to collect them, it is possible to unlock a new secret weapon called the ‘Sword of Dormin’ which does a great amount of damage to each colossi but at the expense of reduced health regeneration as seen in the image below.
