E3 09: Updated Trailer for The Last Guardian (Trico)
A few weeks ago, a trailer from Team Ico (Shadow of the Colossus) was release, and was titled Trico. This same game was rumored for sometime now, but only one single screen capture was shown. When this ‘leaked’ trailer was set loose to the internet hounds, many, including myself, thought it was quite impressive.
Guess what? A new updated trailer has been released thanks to E3, and it looks considerably superior. The textures, animations, lighting and even the boy’s expressions have been upgraded. Even simple If you don’t think it’s possible, check out this clip I have embedded above. The textures, the animations, lighting and even the boys expressions have been all upgraded to a realistic feel. Another thing that just drops my jaw, is the fur swaying rapidly from the wind.
Also, the name Trico has been officially changed to The Last Guardian, which I like better.
There is even a more exciting part about this game, than just the graphics alone. Not only can Team Ico create a stunning visual title, but they can match it with the gameplay too.
I would also like to mention how happy I am that they have kept the wonderful score. It really helps set the mode of the relationship between the monster and the small boy.
