A Little Bit On The Shadow Of The Colossus Side: All Wander wanted to do was to revive Mono, never thinking twice about the colossi. Olly Moss shows that even giant guardians have feelings too.

Reminder: That Ico Novel Drops August 16th.
We posted this news a while back, but this is just a reminder that the highly-anticipated English translation of Ico: Castle in the Mist, inspired by the sleeper hit PS2 game, Ico (from the same team that made Shadow of the Colossus), this novel was written by acclaimed Japanese author Miyuki Miyabe and it marks her 7th novel to be translated into English.

A boy with horns, marked for death; A girl who sleeps in a cage of iron.The Castle of the Mist calls for its sacrifice: a horned child, born once a generation. When, on a single night in his thirteenth year, Ico’s horns grow long and curved, he knows his time has come. But why does the Castle of the Mist demand this offering, and can the castle keep Ico’s destiny from intertwining with that of the girl imprisoned within its walls?

The regular price is $15.99, but you can currently pre-order it on Amazon for just $10.76. Get it or you have no soul!

Trailer for the ICO and SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS HD Collection is Drop Dead Sexy.

Also, 3D compatibility just because.

Since we have to wait until next holiday season to play Team Ico’s THE LAST GUARDIAN,  I guess having an HD upgrade bundle of two of the greatest PS2 games ever can hold me over. Expect this one in stores some time in Spring 2011.

But man… Sony’s really pushing the whole 3D gaming thing. Any of you guys buying into it?
