First screenshots of Ico HD on PS3?

Are these the first screenshots of Ico HD? Or what we expect to be the ‘Team Ico Collection‘? We were hoping to see Team Ico’s first PlayStation 3 game, The Last Guardian, at the Tokyo Games Show but it’s not on Sony’s list. We hope they’re just bluffing, because Fumito Ueda was showing the game off just a day ago.

He was showing it off to developer’s at CEDEC, Japan’s developer’s conference – his topic of discussion was the power of animation in games. He talked about his previous games, with (presumed) footage of his first game Ico. But something’s different, as can be seen in the screenshots below – the aspect ratio is wider, with what appears to be an improved resolution and cleaner textures.

It’s possible that these images were created on a PS2 emulator, but the aspect ratio is so different from the original that it really does look like this has been created especially. Whether this is our first peak at Ico in high-definition for the PS3 we don’t know, but we sure as hell hope so. With a little bit of help from Neogaf here’s a comparison with the original game for you. Please click on the images to enlarge.

And here’s a little picture of The Last Guardian for you from the same event – such a tease.

  1. YES YES YES YES YES YES YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS I hope the collection happens. And holy crap that screen is amazing 🙁 *wants more*

  2. ok since Sony are showing their trash and hyped titles, Ico and others will be special announcements

  3. I screeched like a school girl when I read the title of the article.

  4. Doesn’t look that much better than the original. Probably skip it unless it comes with Trico.

  5. Wouldn’t mind getting in on this seeing as I never played it originally.


  7. God, I hope this is Ico HD.

  8. you guys are owerly ecsited about ico
    aldow i fell in love with it, its realy a puzzle game like no other, but i hawe tell you that its not for eweryone
    shadow of the collosis in hd on the other side, thats something you should be serching youre couch for ewery penny right now

  9. now if we could get some SotC hd screens to go with it, ill wet my pants.

  10. Team ICO are GODS…!!!

  11. Ico and SotC…as much modern art as they are games. While the sheep play call of duty 76 or whatever generic FPS is flavour of the month, we with taste will be playing Ico and SotC in HD, then The Last Guardian. But that’s fine with me…as this is how games like Ico and SotC become rare and valuable. I sold my 2 PS2 copies for £80 the moment I got official confirmation of this re-release. Same will happen with The Last Guardian…I will buy two copies, one to play…and one to sell in sealed condition a few years later.
