Last month, distributor Simon & Schuster revealed a list of Viz Media’s book releases for summer and fall. Amongst them was the Ico novel, authored by contemporary Japanese author, Miyabe Miyuki, and originally published in Japan in 2002.


The news comes via the Twitter feed of manga blog, Tanbishugi. Viz’s edition of Ico: Castle of the Mist has a list price of $15.99, but Amazon are offering it at a discount if you’re interested in pre-ordering. The novel is tentatively slated for release in July.


Meanwhile, Sony are set to publish an Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection on the PlayStation 3 in spring on a single Blu-Ray disc. Both games will be compatible with 3D TVs and Shadow of the Colossus will finally run at a smooth 30 frames-per-second.
