Team ICO's Project Trico HD Trailer

PlayStation LifeStyle writes:

"Up until now, the only image that has been released about Team ICO's next game is a single image of a chain hanging down what appears to be a well. Today we help lift the curtain off of this project a bit and shed some light on what Fumito Ueda has been up to these past few years and as you will see, it is rather close to ICO.

This is very early footage the next game from Team ICO. As with most early footage you can expect graphical enhancements for the final product. Some of these elements, such as the main character, or scenarios you see here may not make the final cut."

It's gonna be the best game ever.

LordMarius4750d ago

Wow, thanks a bunch. Will this be at E3 or something more recent?

prunchess4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

From the screen shots I reckon that's what they are working on!

[Now I have to go looking for the 3D glasses I got when I went to see JAWS 3D all those years ago! Damn I'm old!]


Just watched the trailer - I could be wrong.:-(

Looking good though.

50CALheadshot4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

pre e3 news like this is awesome. i thought they would save it for e3 .


ps: to all the haterz, surely this small preview means the game is still in its alpha stage. OOh but dont worry, like past ps3 sure this will look better than everything else next year when its released. Better than everything on any console.

Sarcasm4750d ago

Wow, there are some parts of the trailer that are truly amazing, while other parts are sorta "meh" looking.

But the music, oh man the music, is very enchanting. It reminds me of something like Zelda.

Cant wait to see and play the finished product.

raztad4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

@Sander and Soconmick

Please guys, shut up. This is an early build trailer, not need to come here to troll against it. This game is one among thousand, it will as special as previous Ueda's games. ICO and SotC. BTW, The art style is the same than those games and its really awesome.

EDIT: to 50Cal

If Sony can afford to unveil this game just few days before E3 is cause they got something ELSE reserved for us. I feel E3 will be totally owned by Sony.

callahan094750d ago

I'm not going to lie, I thought the screenshots (from the other article) with the cat-bird looked awkward, but the video looks amazing! I hope they really reveal this game soon. It looks great.

Dragun6194750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

Wow, Can't wait, Anything from Team Ico must be good.

And It seems like PS3 owners are getting quite the good news this week starting with
-Fallout 3 DLC coming to PS3,
-A preview of whats to expect from Trico,
-A downpour of information about Heavy Rain on Friday
-Then last but not least the announcement of Kojima's next game.

Mu5afir4750d ago

This sure feels like a Team ICO game.. I can feel the atmosphere of this game already. Going to be great, hope to get my hands on it soon. Here is to hoping it releases sometime this year.

TheExecutive4750d ago

Environments look awesome! the Characters and creatures are placeholders or really really early builds of both. Sev comes through again! Oh and he is right about the slim too :).

Fantastastic music. If it isn't from Miller's Crossing it is a very close approximation.

MisterNiwa4750d ago

Seriously that came so out of nowhere, lol.

Thank you Playstation Lifestyle.

ParanoidMonkey4750d ago

Nah, I doubt it. Trico is just a placeholder name. Shadow of the Colossus was originally dubbed Project Nico. Ni = 2 in Japanese. This will get a real name soon.

ThatCanadianGuy4750d ago

I feel i should give some credit to a guy who told me about this trailer.yet, i doubted him back then.

"162 days 8 hours ago | By: J-Train | Block
Project Trico
hey, i was lucky enough to see the team ico trailer in september, i work for playstation in australia. ive told a few on this site. here is what i saw:

the trailer starts by showing a pit with a large chain leading into a cave. the chain shakes! you see the creature's eye. they give the impression it is some monster. then you see a little boy running scared. he runs onto a ledge and falls off grabbing with his hands. he dangles there....the creature comes through a large openening out onto the ledge. it is revealed to be a quite nice looking dog/cat like creature. it picks him up and puts him up to safety............they show some gameplay footage of the boy and the creature fighting knights and running away etc.

at the end they show the creature lying down with the boy cuddling up to it. its quite sad though cause the creature has many spears stuck in it. trailer ends. audience were all sad."

Just goes to show..always trust random strangers on the internet :P

But kudos to Sev for getting us the trailer.Seems like an interesting concept and i can think of none better to pull it off than Team ICO.

TOO PAWNED4750d ago

i think my mind just exploded!

50CALheadshot4750d ago

that is a clever theory. logical and clever. im gonna have to agree.

Major_Tom4750d ago

That was epic to put it lightly, and don't mind Socom he's a die hard xbox fanboy at heart.

WhittO4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

of all the games ps3 has recently been getting, i forgot about Team ICO and their next project !!

Really, i thought the list of ps3 games was too long as it is haha, now im really going to have to wait to play some of these games because i just cant afford them all haha.

Im thinking it will hit early next year.

EDIT: ALso Sev, good idea to put your stamp on the vieo and screens, since other sites seem to be taking the info you post and act like they got the info from their own sources lol.

Freak of Nature4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

Hey Sev remember when I said about 3 weeks ago in a thread here that the main character would be riding a "griffin".....

I was told this by an old friend I worked with on another project....

I have said all along that I had hoped the gameplay would be more like ICO itself,with SOTC boss battles mixed into the act/adv puzzle solving here and there.

My most anticipated game is here,I cannot wait to see more at E3....

Aclay4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )


As a Team ICO fan since I first played ICO in 2001, this is one of the main games I've been waiting for this ENTIRE generation.

An Official Team ICO game announcement at E3 with a new Trailer would be MEGATON for Sony. This totally made my day. Playstation Lifestyle FTW!!

Nikuma4750d ago

That this game is going to make me bawl my eyes out...

ultimolu4750d ago

You are da man.

...I was in awe when I saw the video. Holy sh*t...and this is early footage?!

The final product is going to be beyond amazing, I can tell.


lordgodalming4750d ago

I know, right?! I already commented below that this game better not have the trusty Old Yeller ending.

TheExecutive4750d ago

sev is that ICO music or a placeholder? I swear that's from Miller's Crossing.

4750d ago
WhittO4750d ago

Just thought, maybe this is the BBC game?

They did say it was unlike anything else, looked amazing etc, since this is an older build im guessing it looks even better now, and it truely is original.

kingOVsticks4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

seeing that Eagle rat covered in arrows makes me think that this game is going to have more action than the past ico games. For the idiots complaining about the trailer, its obvious a early build. Its going to a lot better once it comes out between the next two years, were talking about Ico here come on!

meepmoopmeep4750d ago

every game announced since 2005
just took a back seat for me tonight.

GVON4750d ago

I find it hard to believe that creature is real time,if it is then the Ps3 will seriously distance itself from the competition,the animation is of pixar quality,no joke.The way it moved was crazy.

Major_Tom4750d ago

You're the kind of guy that thinks Gears of War and Halo are the best games since the idea of video games, do you really have room to speak?

FamilyGuy4750d ago

You got cred, you keep giving us early info and news about games. A real insider here on N4Gs is rare. That was just awesome.

I would like to download it in HD though and Gamersyde usually comes through with things like that.

+bubbles (not that you need em)

bpac1234567894750d ago

For some reason i wish they wouldn't have released this footage already. I just hope that Sony is not showing all there cards before E3 starts. But other than that it looks great.

I_am_rushin4750d ago

Interesting...never played Ico or Shadow of the Colossus.

Araceae4750d ago

@ socomnick

Let me guess, you just want to shoot and blow things up… right? Plus it is known that you hate on anything PS3 related. So put those two things together and I can easily see why you don’t see the value of a game like this. Maybe you are just an emotionless meathead, you know like all of your favorite characters from 360 franchises.

prunchess4750d ago

Yeah, your probably right. It's a pity, I just found those 3D glasses! :-)

heroicjanitor4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

Those extra details about the creature being stuck there and the kid being his friend made me feel really sad... This game will be amazing if I get sad just thinking about the premise... Officially my most wanted game.

Socomnick is a loser he got into ps3 news almost first and doesn't even have one. Find something to do with your life, like play your 360 or something considering there is no news for it.

Edit: I just thought, what if we have to KILL IT WHILE IT TRIES TO DEFEND THE KID!? I wouldn't be able to do it, even if it is a game, I just amn't that heartless... Damn emotions!

Another edit: Maybe they released this footage now because there is new footage to be shown at e3? Cross your fingers!

CrazzyMan4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

THIS is soo Sony. =)

This game has Soul. =)


"have mercy, every other game has just become obsolete"

infamousinfolite4750d ago

lol How much more can the 360 take? lol seems we still have some haterz in denial, eh socomnick haha

- Ghost of Sparta -4750d ago

Just found out that this footage is almost two years old. Doesn't matter though, we've been waiting to see this.

TheTwelve4750d ago

Epic. Epic, epic, epic, epic.



solar4750d ago

4 reasons why i havent sold my Ps3.

1) Blu-ray
2) Team Ico game.
3) God of War 3
4) a pipe dream of a new Twisted Metal

i think this new Team ICO game could be epic.

FamilyGuy4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

Why does the video quality look much better on my pc than on my PS3?
They're both playing the same HD Youtube signal.

BTW, im downloading it now using the downloadHelper extension in firefox, i thought it was an FLV so i wasn't bothering before but as it turns out it's an 720p mp4

Im uploading it to megashares now so that you can download it directly to your PS3, it's already compatible for playback and look 100x better than the youtube feed. The download link will be in the open zone so that it's near the top of the page.

Here it is:

Marceles4750d ago

I gotta join the OMG party...seriously, wow. Epic.

pain777pas4750d ago

The Animation the camera work everything looks like the makings of a true next gen game. On the right track team ICO as usual.

Saigon4750d ago

i can;t wait to play this...

ActionBastard4750d ago

Sev: You made my month bro. I've never seen this before and I appreciate the post! Haters be damned.

tordavis4750d ago

Good job Sev. You just OWNED all the big sites. I'm proud of ya.

That footage looked awesome. Looked like it was all in-game too. I'm intrigued. It seriously looks like you stole one of Sony's tapes from their media presentation.

Bits-N-Kibbles4750d ago

That looks as epic as anything i've seen in a long time. Reminds me of the never ending story and some other movies. The iron giant too.

chaosatom4750d ago

Best footage ever.

There was some gameplay footage at the end too. Awesome!!!!

decimalator4750d ago

Note to N4G admins - add a "Report for being awesome" button. I've watched it a few times now, and it gets better each time!

killax35634750d ago

Sev, you are a god.

How in the hell did you get this trailer?!? You obviously have some great, deep connections in the video game industry.

Great job bro...... you introduced this game to the entire world (at least in moving, video form).

- Ghost of Sparta -4750d ago

The creature isn't a cat or a dog. It looks like a baby Griffon.

Cannot believe this footage wasn't leaked sooner. It's so old that even the music they used is just placeholder stuff, from a movie soundtrack.

Arnon4750d ago

That was beautiful... It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And I have a feeling that it's going to make me shed tears heh.

Stinkinmushroom4750d ago

ok, i was a huge hater...

not anymore... PSLS bookmarked

solidjun54750d ago

*clap clap clap clap clap clap*

You're the man. Also kudos to you for adding your name. No one is going to steal your thunder homie.

Ryudo4750d ago (Edited 4750d ago )

The PS3 line up is really starting to come into a league of its own. And to the fools that keep going on about graphics the game doesn't need to look any better. Its the game that matters not the graphics there already plenty good enough.

Not every game in the Playstation line up is made for graphics whores. Some games work on charm and sheer awesome game play and story. Cant we all for once just say F*ck graphics?

All I ever here from the PS3 fanboy's lately is graphics graphics graphics its driving me insane. Graphics is only 20 percent of a great game. Its not that important you only have to look at killzone 2 and Halo 3 to work that out. Or the huge margin the Wii is ahead of its rivals despite its horrible graphics.

TheBlackSmoke4750d ago

Ya know as much as i love my PS3 i have felt for a while now that as i become older i have lost that magic feeling i used to get from playing games... that is until i just watched this trailer in full HD and man i feel like a 12 year old boy all over again or the way i felt when i first got introduced to studio ghibli films.

Its amazing how in just a few minutes of early footage it already establishes the bond between the boy and his pet without a word being said and wow the music choice was perfect, literally gave me goosebumps.

This for me is one of the defining reasons i own a PS3, i just cant wait to play this. If in the event this is just fan made..... seriously this game HAS to be made regardless.

god bless you team ico.

MNicholas4750d ago

While it's still clearly a work in progress the melding of technology and art have never been better realized than in the hands of Team Ico.

BWS19824750d ago

as an artist with a degree in Media Arts and Animation, I can totally state that was profoundly epic and brilliant. Stellar atmosphere and presentation, I can't wait for this one. Amazing.

Matpan4750d ago

Feels epic. Like a mixture of miyasaki and that feel from panzer dragoon saga. Nice nice nice! I want to see more.

Seraphim4750d ago


thanks Sev.

OmegaSlayer4750d ago

Great Sev.
You're right.
Playstation is not only gaming, is a lifestyle, a way of life for passionate people.

andron4750d ago

Truly epic and promising. This looks like it's going to to be very special...
