ICO creator to speak at GDC

Ueda ready to show PS3 game?

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus creator Fumito Ueda has been confirmed as one of the speakers for the Game Developers Conference next month.

He'll be joining developer heavyweights Goichi Suda (No More Heroes, Killer 7) and Emil Pagliarulo (lead designer for Fallout 3) to talk about evolving game design.

Whether or not he'll discuss his PlayStation 3 project - tentatively known as "ICO 3" - isn't mentioned. But we'll be there, ready and waiting, if he does.

So far all we know about ICO 3 comes from concept art illustrating a job advert, and Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida claiming the game will be "really, really good".

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus were exactly that, and, judging by their four-year development cycles, we should see ICO 3 released next year.
