On a distant island village, there is a legend that anyone born with horns will bring about calamity. Such a boy was born named Ico. To ensure the safety of their village, Ico is offered as a sacrifice at a nearby castle. However, he escapes and finds a young girl named Yorda imprisoned there as well. While trying to escort her out, they are attacked by the angered spirits of the castle and Yorda's mother, the queen of the castle. Together, Ico and Yorda must work to flee from the castle before they can be claimed by the spirits. Written by

Did You Know?
On the original Playstation 2 release, the American NTSC version of the game is missing several features that are present in the PAL versions of the game. These include: Co-op gameplay, a magical green sword, and if the player plays through the game a second time, Yorda's subtitles will be translated to english and a secret "Watermelon ending" can occur at the end of the game. Fumito Ueda states that this is because Team Ico "ran out of time" when porting the game to NTSC. See more
