Well, we won’t be playing either the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection or The Last Guardian on our PS3s this year. Team Ico just came right out and said that both games are delayed. We don’t know why or for how long, just that they won’t be showing up in our systems anytime soon. It’s quite a disappointment, especially since both were supposed to be here in 2011. To be specific, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection was supposed to be out in Spring 2011 and The Last Guardian in Winter 2011. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus were so close!
Team Ico’s Fumito Ueda made the announcement that probably broke a million hearts via the PlayStation Blog. No details were given, other than Ueda wanted to ensure both games’ were quality endeavors. So, I guess we should be glad that at least Team Ico wants to make both releases as perfect as possible.
In the meantime, let’s go back and watch some trailers. See what we’re missing and hope the new launch dates come quickly. Here’s the official Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection trailer.
And here’s a rather pretty The Last Guardian trailer.
Yup, those look like they’re worth the wait!
