Media Molecule announced that they are going to release Team Ico “costumes, stickers and sound effects,” for LittleBigPlanet. It was already rumored that we would be downloading some Ico properties, when the developers released artwork of SackBoy and SackGirl dressed up as Ico and Yorda from the classic title.
Now, the company has actually released images of the DLC, which we have up top and below. Not only that, they have already promised that more content for Shadow of the Colossus will be on the way, and will be first shown tomorrow.
MM is promising we’ll be able to play as Sackico and friends this Thursday.

Media Molecule, who is the team behind LittleBigPlanet, are teasing the internet with with the image above. As you can tell, the art is SackBoy and SackGirl dressed up as the characters from Ico.
Someone decided to ask the company using twitter, if this picture means we’ll be seeing some kind of Ico themed downloadable content for LittleBigPlanet. Their response was simple.
“why yes, yes it is.”
That’s sounds like a confirmation to me. With E3 right around the corner, and the Trico trailer being leaked, it seems like this is actually going to happen.
More to come during E3, so check back.

Film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy), apparently enjoys to play video games. He enjoys them so much he can have an in-depth conversation and give detailed answers about why he likes certain games. He even compares the atmosphere of some games to legendary movie directors such as Roman Polanski (Rosemary’s Baby) and George A. Romero (Dawn of the Dead).
I absolutely loved BioShock. I loved the world, the design, the lighting, the beautiful art direction and cinematography. I’m a fan of Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. I love them all. The first Silent Hill was so beautiful, almost like a Lynch, Polanski or Romero type of horror experience…
I love the engine of GTA IV. I’m not a big fan of the actual game: I’m not into break-ins or running people over, but the engine is incredibly beautiful, and the sandbox is very complete. The same goes for Medal of Honor Airborne, Call of Duty 4 or Army of Two. There are only two games I consider masterpieces: Ico and Shadow of the Colossus… I have a 12-year-old daughter and we play together, but unfortunately she’s more into Sonic and Kirby.
The more time goes by and games become more mainstream, the more we see respectable Hollywood names come out of the woodwork and admit they play video games. When a ‘star’ used to ‘admit’ he/she plays video games, we usually got the “I’m more of a Pac-Man kind of person,” response. You know, the answer we always get when they want to look ‘cool’ for pop-culture.
Not only does del Toro admit he enjoys a next-gen game from time to time, but so does Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. The growing trend of video games in Hollywood is great news for us gamers. With movies like Max Payne coming out later this year and Bioshock next year, hopefully movies adapted from video games will be the next ‘comic book’ genre for the film industry.
