    Thumbs up NICO (aka ICO 2)

    Just read an article in Game Informer saying this might be out as early as the end of this year. Anyone else excited about that, or am I the only one who played ICO?

    I hope my dreams don't get shattered. If this is true, I think i'd be more excited to get this than Half-Life 2. ICO was pure genius and if they follow the tried and true method of not fixing whats not broken, then NICO should be gold as well. They better not ship anything less than perfect or blood will flow through the streets.

    I just thought of something. Since "Ico" is the name of the lead in the first game, if they follow tradition, then the name of the second lead should be "Nico". A girl?? This time, it's a gal pulling a pale and strange boy around? :0

    LOL.
    If I recall correctly, the rumors of a sequel initially started when the developers put out an ad to recruit, and used a picture with 2 or 3 kids with horns. So maybe there's multiple ICOs running around.

    If it's half as good as the first, it will kick major ass!

    ICO is still, imho, PS2's best visuals.

    From what I've heard, The horses moreso play the 'princess' role this time. And it's rumored they're actually controlable on occasion.
    This image was actually done about 3 months after the first game came out over here... who knows what they're up to now.

    HORRAY FOR NICO!

    Im a huge ico fan. I just recently bought the game( I always played my friends copy until now) and I love every moment of it. I even bought the players guide cuz I want to examine every little detail of that game. One of my goals is to create my own icoesque world. There's something soooo beautiful about the ico universe, its sooo quiet its beautiful. Anyways.....Im damn excited about the game and I hope they do the first Ico justice!

    btw, did you guys know that besides using the swords, theres this hidden puzzle where you get a mase? It's pretty rad...cuz enemies are a synchy to kill once you get it.

    I haven't been able to find a copy for import... but in the Japanese version of ICO a 2nd player can control the princess, there are translations for the princess, and after the credits both the characters eat some watermellons on the beach : D

    I hope the 2nd one follows the 'less is more' philosophy... Ico was so convincing with atmosphere, story, character, environment, etc. 'cause they didn't over-do it to the point of obserdity like most games do.

    NICO (aka ICO 2)

    best damn environment of any game... That castle was more of a character than most games can hope to acheive with their leading 'heroes'.

    OH HELLS YEA!!!

    NICO (aka ICO 2)

    more here:
    Wanda and Colossus

    Apparently new levels pose themselves as new giant creatures you have to defeate... puzzles involve crawling up the creatures, and when weakspots are struck the giants' anatomy can change altering the 'mazes'
    I'd like to see how they work the horse into this, 'cause apparently there's HUGE fields to traverse.
