Huge Unofficial Reveal: Project Trico Screenshots, HD Trailer!
Ho-ly...GOD. We always knew we'd be enthusiastic when we finally saw Team ICO's new PlayStation 3 exclusive project, but we could never have guessed just how excited we'd be based on the first batch of screenshots and a high-definition trailer.
Well, thanks to PlayStation Lifestyle, the game called Project Trico has rocketed to the top of our most anticipated list. It's possible that God of War III and Final Fantasy XIII might still be a little ahead of it, but the fact that Trico is instantly in our new Top 5 should tell you something. First, go ahead and view the screenshots, which are impressive enough in their own right. But it's only a taste; the true appeal lies in the teaser trailer, which is nearly four minutes in length and makes us drool. Designer Fumito Ueda hinted that this new game would be a little closer to ICO than Shadow of the Colossus, but fans of the latter will quickly notice one particular element of SotC in this early look at Trico. The scary part? The source says this is from an "early build," and if that's the case, what the hell with the final product look like?! Jeebus! We're envisioning a game like ICO, with puzzles and platforming aspects that are related to your colossal (pun intended) friend clearly seen in the video. We didn't really think something so giant could be cute, but...
This may be a little anti-climactic if you were expecting the official unveiling at E3, which may still happen. But who's really going to complain after viewing this media? Project Trico will...be...excellent. By the way, just in case this is all one big giant hoax, and because we don't have an official press release in our inbox, we can't really call this verified "truth" just yet.
