Yoshida: The Last Guardian Sure Looks Pretty

Posted by Sammy Barker

Executive has played the mysterious game

Outside of the surprise announcement of a new Uncharted game, last night’s PlayStation 4 launch livestream didn’t quite live up to the epic scale that prior teases had promised. Nevertheless, while Sony opted to keep its first-party studios under wraps yet again, there were a few hints to the future – if you were willing to read between the lines.

One section of the broadcast saw GameTrailers TV host Geoff Keighley grilling Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida on the overdue PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Guardian – and the likeable executive shared a few chosen words on the Japan Studio developed game. “It looks pretty,” he teased.

Keighley kept pushing the topic, and managed to force Yoshida into admitting that he had played the release recently. Asked which controller he had used to sample the experience – DualShock 3 or DualShock 4 – the suit giggled that he’d forgotten. Recent rumours suggested that the adventure is now in production for the platform holder’s next generation console, though nothing is confirmed.

The last we heard about Fumito Ueda’s hotly anticipated boy-meets-bird excursion is that it’s not the focus at Japan Studio – but with Puppeteer, Rain, and Knack now available, surely it’s time for the Team ICO title to take centre stage. We remain hopeful that this will be re-announced imminently – after all, we’ve only been waiting six years.

If Sony are to be believed, this game was delayed so they could focus on Knack.

There is no God.

Rain and Knack didn't really sit well with reviewers. Seems like reviewers doesn't like what's coming from japan studio. I hope Team ICO pull it off. Hate bad reviews.

I don't think anything can ever replace Duke Nukem Forever for delays so there's no point in making that comparison, so I'm just calling this the next Daikatana.

Final product better be much better though.

And while were on the subject of vaporware, any word on Beyond Good and Evil 2?

TEAM ICO on PS4 will really be something to behold. I Love SOTC and ICO, I see no reason why this'll be any less impressive.

No, no, new footage or it won't happen.
We've been teased for a very long time to believe them,
