Sony worldwide studio head Shuhei Yoshida has given the clearest indication yet that the firm is ramping up to the announcement of Fumito Ueda’s next game, confirming to VG247 that the PS3 project will be shown “soon.”

“I cannot tell,” said the exec was asked specifically if the new Team ICO game will be shown at Tokyo Game Show this year.

“But I can say that they’ve been working very hard since the release of Shadow of the Colossus.

“Soon you’ll see.”

Yoshida said that Sony’s plans for the Japanese event are yet to be finalised.

“Tokyo’s more focused on consumers so we’re still working on the intricacies,” he said. “Games Convention is unique of consumers and trade.”

The Ueda project has been consistently in the press recently, despite the fact no one knows a blind thing about it.

Ueda himself said in a recent interview that the game was still out of “critical” production, and Yoshida has also said previously that he’s excited by the title.

Go on. TGS. You know you want to.
