Video: Team Ico on The Last Guardian, Shadow of The Colossus

208w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video interview today with Team Ico's Fumito Ueda on The Last Guardian and Shadow of The Colossus for PlayStation 3.

To quote: Fumito Ueda is a name well known to most PlayStation fans. After directing the iconic PS2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, Ueda-san fast became one of the most celebrated figures in international game development.

Now he's working on a new game, the boy-beast buddy adventure The Last Guardian. If you missed the new trailer released one week ago at the Tokyo Game Show, you can watch it below.

While in Tokyo, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ueda-san about The Last Guardian and his upcoming PS3 compilation Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection.





I knew that getting a lot of firm details about a game as enigmatic and ambitious as The Last Guardian would be no easy task, so I decided to focus my questions on learning more about how the game plays, its core mechanics, and nuances I spotted in the trailer. Ueda-san's replies provide a rare glimpse into one of 2011′s most intriguing games.

Sid Shuman: How would you describe The Last Guardian to somebody who had never seen it before?

Video: TGS 09: Team ICO's Fumito Ueda on The Last Guardian

260w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video interview today on the PlayStation Blog with Team ICO's Fumito Ueda at Tokyo Game Show.

It covers the upcoming title The Last Guardian for the PS3 console, to quote:

Day one of TGS was a bit out of hand. While Jem was downstairs digging into Valkyria Chronicles 2, I had the opportunity to meet with Team ICO's Fumito Ueda. Decisions, decisions.

Though Ueda-san wasn't up for spilling *too many* details on the upcoming The Last Guardian, he did give some interesting insight into the way he and his team make games.

He also hints that maybe we don't know how this game is going to play out, after all.




 

Team ICO's Project Trico HD Trailer and Screenshot Available

279w ago - 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.

To quote: 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.

Below is some early footage of the next game from Team ICO, exclusive to the PlayStation 3. This video may not represent the final product. Allow some time for this to buffer.




 

Team ICO Set to Unveil New PlayStation 3 Title at E3 2009

289w ago - It looks like we're finally going to be able to get a glimpse at Team ICO's ultra-secret game!

Sony's sure going to put up a grand show during this year's E3. Their PSP line-up is pretty huge as it is. And for the PS3, you can bet your last rat's ass that God of War 3 and Heavy Rain will be there. But what else is there?

Somehow, Sony's managed to keep Team ICO's secret game under the radar for months now. But in E3, it looks like the curtains will finally be pulled up.

The new game following the spirit of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus is now confirmed to appear in E3 in the form of a trailer and some gameplay footage.

Heck, we might actually hear about the new game even sooner, during GDC (which starts two weeks from now!). Though the new game isn't confirmed to be revealed during the event, Ico and Colossus creator Fumito Ueda is confirmed to have a keynote speech duing GDC '09.
 

Yoshida: Team Ico Has Something Really, Really Good on the Way

50°
320w ago - The new head of Sony Computer Entertainment Shuhei Yoshida said, in an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, that Team Ico has something "really, really good on the way."

The full quote: "They are working on a title. I started the ICO project. Ueda-san joined my team in Japan as a cinematic animator, but he created a short movie and presented it to me and said, "I want to make this game."

I said, "Yes, let's do it, but you have never made a game. We have to have experienced people do it," so it took a while, recruiting one person at a time. And because Fumito Ueda doesn't compromise, we had to move the development from PSone to PlayStation 2. Then I couldn't complete the game because I moved to the United States.

It took four years and the second game took four years too. So I started calling them the 'Olympic Team.' They haven't released a PS3 title yet - of course not - they'll take four years! But they have something really, really good on the way."

Of course Yoshida would say something like that-he kind of has to. But given the track record of Team Ico-I think we can take his word on that.
