ICO, the classic PS2 adventure that I personally consider the greatest work of video game design and artistry I’ve ever played, has been adapted into a 400-page paperback novel by Japanese author Miyuki Miyabe. Even better news: it’s less than two weeks away from bookstore shelves!

ICO: Castle In The Mist is being published in North America by Viz Media, under the company’s Haikasoru imprint, and it will be available on August 16th, just in time to give fans and newcomers a chance to read up before the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection graces the PS3 with its artistic beauty, grand atmosphere and emotionally evocative storytelling.

The book’s list price is $15.99, but you can pre-order it now through Amazon for only $10.76. Read a brief excerpt here.
