Despite having completed only two games to date, Team Ico are widely regarded as one of the most talented video game development groups around today. Their first game Ico, was a delightfully imaginative adventure game, taking control of a young boy having to solve countless puzzles to help a young girl escape a vast castle. The second was Shadow Of The Colossus, this time controlling another young boy, whom with the help of his horse, must defeat gigantic colossi enemies.

The third game by Team Ico, and their most anticipated to date, is The Last Guardian. Again the focal character is a young boy, this time navigating his way around an expansive land with a huge griffin-like creature. It’ll be the same classic action-adventure and puzzle game we saw in Ico, which is what the Japanese studio do best, and after a leaked proof of concept video, a full trailer premiered at E3 2009. If you don’t own a PS3 already, you’ll want to consider buying one now.

The Last Guardian will be out on PS3 in 2010.
