E3 2009 / Trico is real, actually called The Last Guardian

It’s official kids. Team Ico, the intrepid group of kooky artists who brought us Shadow of the Colossus and Ico are about to release another onslaught of poignant awesomeness. A couple weeks ago a trailer was released called Project Trico. It was quickly discovered that it was not official and also incredibly old, as in years old. And that was all we knew, until now.

Today, during Sony’s E3 press conference we received both confirmation that Project Trico is coming out and also had a new name for the Dragon-Kitty epic, The Last Guardian. No word on release dates but if I got to choose, Summer 2009.
