Sony reveals the first ever screenshot to the followup to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus by updating its careers section.
but one wonders what is at the end of that chain? It seems that the traditional ICO art style is retained (which is a good thing) but I'm hoping Team ICO brings it to another level.
it appears that they will be going for great gameplay and artistic view, over graphical superiority as it doesnt look Next Gen (graphically).........I LOVED SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS .......
........"The JOEY has Spoken"
I actually don't agree with either of you. Remember, this is the FIRST screenshot, and from the quality of the shot, you can't see the detail in textures. I have no doubt that this game will look next-gen when development is finished and its ready to ship.
i'm not hoping it, i'm 100% sure.
team ICO is just as rockstar north .. anything they come up with is PURE GOLD.
and that's a fact.
can't wait for ICO 3!!!!!!!
That ground looks as good as any stone surface in Uncharted. I'd say that's pretty next gen...Uncharted being one of the graphical showcases of '07 and all.
This the PS3's zelda killer. This is the game that makes me a PS3 fanboy and i'm proud of it. It's one screenshot so it probably has no chance that it's coming out until early 2009.
this game is going to SLAUGHTER! MASSACRE!!!
the picture doesn't show much, but what I'm really interested in seeing, is a release date.
Yah , likely more at GDC. Im pretty much sold already though.
yeah same here, rofl.. xD
There wasn't even an ICO 2...SotC was more of a spiritual successor.
At any rate, the screen shows nothing to get excited about...very low detail, and nothing game-defining about it. The last we saw of the young lad and lass, they washed up together on a beach...and that's not a beach. :/
"ICO 3" is just a name used for the third game in the ICO universe. I really doubt there will ever be a direct sequel to the original ICO or SotC. And besides,
according to the creator if ICO, the beach scene at the end of the game was actually just a dream.
I can't see pic can someone post it here? I'm at work and they don't allow certain sites.
here man...its nothing too great, but worth seeing if you like these games...
the cross sign seems funny.
Good one I wonder who thout that up.
This is the sequel to ICO not Shadow of the Colossus. -_-
SOtC was a prequel of ICO.
Anyway people who played SOtC know what the image is about. Seems that they changed it into a well or maybe opened it to release....
DUN DUN DUN! =P
Say what ya'll want i'm just glad its confirmed
hmmm... doesnt exactly show much does it...
still... just another Sony game to pine over for the next year!
So the mods fixed your account douche?
yeah bro, WooHoo!!
well i dont know if was the mods as they never replied to me, but eitherway, the douche is back!
In all of his Mighty_ glory.
and another game to add to ps3 line-up
ICO team is one of reasons make any one think of how PS3 is great....
The pictures doesn't do anything for me..I can't wait though for what they got in store for all PS3 owners..
wow what a tease
Yess all over my face
is it just me or does the screenshot look a little awful
assuming that isn't just their SotC website, i'm going to take a stab and say that this one will be more related to SotC than ico. why? because the website address points to "wanda" which was part of the japanese name of SotC.
anyways, i'm excited for this game. Team ICO is a great dev because they're given free reign over their creativity.
in the screenshot.. but that's not what matters.. what matters is TeamICO is working on something and i'm sure it'll be HUGE
lookin good i must say...really looking forward to what team ico has in store for this game...the screenshot looks reminiscent of the art style of heavenly sword...its creative and unique games like these that make me happy i own a ps3
its not much, but at least the game is officially on the radar and il be tracking it closely as time goes by
only on PS3
just thinking about this game gets me HYPE.
MASSIVE SoTC SPOILER:
That looks like the fountain thing where Wander gets turned into the first horned child.
I agree, that's exactly what I thought of when I saw that image.
I thought that too.
Oh how I've waited to hear those words.
Can't wait to see more.
Looks like ass. BTW, is fake.
you just cant decide how to spread bullsh!t about the ps3 can you?
so make a decision.... is it ass or fake?
you have stooped to a new low in terms of mental instability
this could be as big of a hit as GoW3... SotC was one of the most original games i've played
that. come on ico give us something more.
Ico / Soc are two of my most favorite games of all time. They are very unique on their play style. I really hope, that Team ICO can release something from that universe this year.
This is offical... right?
By the time this game is done it will look miles better than Uncharted. This screen is just a tease but it's going to be a truly epic game, just like the original Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Can't wait, unfortunately we have to.
They're calling it "Ico 3" because it's their third project.
I loved the ico game, but missed the shadow of colossus game.
go ico go ico go go go ico ! cant wait for that game. =D
Both of Team Ico's games make all time top 30 and 20 ign/game lists. PS3 owners get ready. We're very lucky to have the industrys best developers exclusives.
new ico game omg!
right now i guess it's still in it's early stages. But I still appreciate any piece of news they give us. And this is just one of their projects. Can't wait to see the other one. And a release date - even a vague one - would be awesome too!
BRING THAT ON, MAN!!!
Please include at least ONE colossus fight!!!
I just had an idea!
What if they have this game...and it comes packaged with a next-gen version of Shadow of the Colossus? Huh?
they could just combine them? i never played ICO(i thought it was garbage at the time) but i bought shadow and its one of the best games i've ever played. to see it with hyped up visuals would be AMAZING!
Wow! what a teaser, Sony still has unmatchable library games on all front`s hands down
Ico and SotC were great games. The time for me to get a PS3 is getting closer, especially with Snake and Hwoarang and co. on the horizon.
thats on PS2
when it says "PS3" (quite big I might add) on the follow-up page :P
Now I know why you only have two bubbles.
In the sh*ty x360 is not for sure!!!! ICO IS GREAT, Assface!!!! ICO3 will be in the PS3 and will be a spectacular game, a masterpiece, such all games of teamico...STFU...
SOTC 2 will be E P I C !!! I am more excited for SOTC2 than GOW3!
I bet you will see a surfer girl article talking about this exact picture sometime in the near future.
This is 100% official because it's on IGN too. Never played ICO, but SotC was EPIC and one of my favorite games on the PS2 (and that's saying something considering it's amazing library)
same here, ive never played ICO, i heard it was really good, but SOTC was just mad crazy, every single boss fight was breathtaking.
You should find a copy of Ico to play through sometime - it won't take you too long. It's not as action packed as SoTC, but it's a unique experience that no PS2 owner should miss - especially one who liked Shadow. They are related - don't you want to know how?
....I.....C.....O......3!!!!!M y PS3 ant ready for this piece of gaming gold!
