2011 is setting up to be an interesting year for fans of Fumito Ueda. First there is his new game The Last Guardian which will be released later this year (Rumours point towards October for the EU at least). Then there is the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD double pack released for the PS3 sometime this spring and now there is news of the ICO novel getting an English Translation! Famed author Miyuki Miyabe novelised her interpretation if the ICO story and released about six years ago with a fair amount of success to it. The Novel: ICO: Castle of the Mist has an Amazon release date of August 16th 2011 (2 days before my Birthday, Nice) and for anyone interested in the books current reception, Gamespite did a review of the Japanese edition which can be found here. Either way, I hope the cover for the book is at least better than THIS monstrocity.
