Okay, before I go any further please note the fat "rumor" in the headline of this story. Got it? Okay.
So what you'll find after the jump is a supposed trailer for Team ICO's next project, titled "Project Trico." The footage comes from PlayStation blog PlayStation LifeStyle with no source, and no information on the game outside "this is very early footage the next game from Team ICO." With that said, at this time there's no way to verify this trailer and the accompanying images. I'm throwing it out here because well... it's pretty damned cool.
The trailer (which you can see after the jump) shows a game that appears to follow the adventures of a young boy and a very large, rat-like companion that he uses to traverse a temple-like environment. The look is in line with Team ICO's other projects, and looks to be an interesting mix of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus' gameplay.
If this is a fake, it's really damned good one, and Fumito Ueda should probably hire the person (or persons) who put this together. If it is legit (and based solely on the quality of the video and sound, it may very well be), one has to wonder where or how PlayStation LifeStyle got their hands on the trailer. Nothing against the site, but this seems more like an E3 reveal than a quiet blog premiere.
