Ico Ready to Traumatize/Delight Me Yet Again

Kotaku has a new trailer for the upcoming HD version of Ico, which will be packaged with a similarly HD Shadow of the Colossus, and released in America this September. Ico is absolutely one of my favorite games I’ve ever played, and one of the games I invariably bring up when the games-as-art conversation comes up because of the visceral emotional response it creates purely through a simple game mechanic and a bit of character animation. It’s also a damned fine puzzle game, with an interesting twist. I could go on and on about its awesomeness, but instead I’m just going to watch the video again and count the days until September. You guy can check out the similar Shadow trailer here.
