Just What Has Happened to The Last Guardian?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Different day, same old questions

The Last Guardian, The Last Guardian, wherefore art thou, The Last Guardian? We fully expected Team ICO’s hotly anticipated – but oft delayed – adventure to re-emerge during Sony’s big PlayStation 4 blowout this week, but once again, Fumito Ueda’s giant catbird was nowhere to be seen. We didn’t even get a consolation feather – oh, the despair.

Chatting with Venturebeat, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida did touch upon the title – but, unfortunately, he had nothing new to share. “I’m not ready to talk about that,” he noted. “Sorry. We’ve broken promises, we are waiting for the right to time reintroduce The Last Guardian. I’m not going to say anything beyond what Ueda-san said.”

There’s been plenty of speculation that The Last Guardian has switched production from PlayStation 3 to Sony’s new system, but, again, Yoshida wouldn’t be drawn on specifics. There’s a good chance that the platform holder could be saving the title’s big re-reveal until E3, though. In which case, the wait goes on.

@Sanquine I tend to agree with you. I'm sure it will be at E3. Then again, we've been saying the same thing for like three years now!

Maybe this will be the PS3's "swan song," as it were? Either way it's been way too long since I've heard more new info.

Not having it at the PS4 presentation Wed just makes me think it's ONLY a PS3 game. I know there were a number of games shown coming to the PS3 but they were all also coming to the PS4.

If and when they finally do ever announce it's being released, I hope they change the name to "The Last Guardian forEver". But until then, a moratorium.

I hope it's released on PS3 as well as PS4. But the reason it's taking so long could be that it's been entirely recoded for PS4...where do I go to cry?
