Beyond the Labyrinth: An Ico Style Game For 3DS?
Tri-Ace reveals a gorgeous looking dungeon crawler that bears a striking resemblance to a certain cult hit PS2 game.
Tri-Ace, best known for its work on the Star Ocean series, officially announced Beyond the Labyrinth, a role-playing adventure for Nintendo's 3DS.
Unfortunately, that's about all we know. Screenshots feature a young girl exploring old ruins, but no details were given in regards to her identity or why such a pretty lady would walk through such a lonely place.
That said, the screens are incredible. If you doubted the 3DS' power, just take a look at the images. We can't wait to see the game in motion.
With this in mind, we can't help but wonder if the developers intended to pay homage to Ico, the beloved PlayStation 2 adventure starring a young boy with horns. Critically acclaimed for having tricky puzzles and unique graphics, Ico is without question one of the PS2's biggest cult hits.
Keep in mind, of course, that such a connection is pure speculation.
