James Gallagher writes, "While I wasn’t able to attend Tokyo Game Show this year, I was able to get some questions out to Fumito Ueda, creator of ICO, Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian, which is coming to PlayStation 3 in 2011."
the last guardian beast is officaily called TRICO. interesting.
a play on words? ICO= 1st game the last guardian= 3rd game - trilogy ICO+Trilogy= TRICO?
I'm pretty sure that was the nick name for the game by fans before the title was announced.
This is not new info. I've known his name was Trico for over a year.
Man eating bird, or something like that. But yes, there's also the play on words. Shadow of the Colossus was revealed as "Nico" (Ni is 2 in Japanese, so Ni + Ico = Nico = Second Ico). Tri is also a term for 3, and it fits in that way.
Nah, ICO = ICO SoTC = NICO (that was its codename and it is because of the number 2 in Japanese being "ni") TLG = Trico (From tri which is 3 since it's the 3rd in the trilogy)
''There are so many things; it’s hard to pick just one. But most importantly, I’m always thinking about creating a game that I’d want to play but that doesn’t currently exist – I want to make that happen.''
First in Ico, he went for HDR, Volumetric Light, interactive water: http://www.youtube.com/watc... , cloth physics, elf shadowing etc. Teh he went for soft-body collision(organic collision deformation) in Shadow of the Colossus... Now he is combining the two with added "3D"... amazing!
damn somebody should ask him too do a rpg.
