Looks like Media Molecule have been working on the latest outfits for Sackboy. This Thursday they will be displaying a new set of costumes to pay homage to Team ICO’s classicÂ and Shadow of the Colossus. Grab your stickers and your new outfits and new sound effects to have some great entertainment with Ico and Yorda on Playstation 3 this week.
Ico is a 2001 action adventure video game published by Sony Computer entertainment and released for the Playstation 2 video game console. It was designed and directed by Fumito, who wanted to create a minimalist game around a “boy meets girl” concept. Originally planned for the Playstation Ico took approximately four years to develop. The team employed a “subtracting design” approach to reduce elements of gameplay that interfered with the game’s setting and story in order to create a high level of immersion.
The titular protagonist is a young boy born with horns whom his village considers a bad omen. Warriors lock Ico away in an abandoned fortress. During his explorations of the fortress, Ico encounters Yorda, the daughter of the castle’s Queen. The Queen plans to use Yorda’s body to extend her own lifespan, so Ico seeks to escape the castle with Yorda to prevent this fate from occurring, keeping her safe from the shadow-like creatures that attempt to draw her back. Throughout the game, the player controls Ico as he explores the castle, solves puzzles, and assists the less-agile Yorda across obstacles.
