Where the wild things are
Bonding with Trico is a magical, emotional experience throughout The Last Guardian. The story-driven and mechanical themes of teamwork are spread throughout Fumito Ueda's projects whether you're playing alongside Agro or Yorda, but it's even more intimate with Trico since you're immensely dependent on each other. Wondering...
Breath of the wild
Eiji Aonuma, the producer of The Legend of Zelda series, had a particularly busy 2016 as he wrapped up production of Nintendo Switch and Wii U title Breath of the Wild – but he did make time for one particular PlayStation 4 game, as revealed to Game Informer magazine. "I was too busy in 2016, so I couldn't play a lot of games ,...
For this author's money, the best ending of the year is a toss-up between The Last Guardian and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End – but the former may have just stolen the crown from atop Drake's head due to an Easter egg that's only just been discovered. If you haven't finished Fumito Ueda's fantasy favourite just yet, then we'd urge...
Decade-long development cycles rarely end well, especially when a rabid fanbase has passed the time by elevating a project's expectations to astronomical levels. The Last Guardian, launching some seven years after its original announcement, was always going to have a huge battle on its hands, then – not least because it has the...
The Last Guardian is this author's personal Game of the Year, and it's just dropped to £24.99 here in the UK. A slew of retailers are carrying Fumito Ueda's fantasy favourite for the new low price, with Amazon UK among the outlets. Don't miss out on one of the most truly original experiences in years.
Try not to cry
Just a quick reminder: The Last Guardian is out. Like, right now. You can actually buy it from shops or the PlayStation Store. Seriously, how amazing is that? This accolades trailer doesn't really tell you anything new, but we're just posting it because of the music really. Gorgeous or what?
Believe in a Trico
Can you believe it? The Last Guardian, after a torturous spate of delays, is finally available globally. Fumito Ueda's touching tale about a bird and beast was originally announced all the way back in 2009, but bizarrely is playable on your PlayStation 4 right now. But does it still dazzle after a decade of development? We...
The Last Guardian doesn't much care for convention. Fumito Ueda's fantasy adventure may have taken the best part of a decade to deploy, but Team ICO's creative vision was never to blame. This bewilderingly brilliant yarn about a boy and a bird sticks so rigidly to a singular ideal that it's almost detrimental at times. And yet, it's...
Can't tame the beast
There's no gameplay clips and no actual footage of the big cat-bird-dog thing that is Trico, but we still find this quirky UK advert for The Last Guardian quite endearing. It's a bit twee, we suppose, but that's part of the appeal - even if it does make us think twice about getting Sammy one of these things for Christmas...
As you may be expecting, The Last Guardian throws you in at the deep end of the pool, and doesn't really care to hold your hand. We wanted to capture some gameplay footage to share with you, but didn't really want to spoil any of the late-game puzzles or environments. So this 15 minutes is taken from near to the very beginning of the...
It's finally time
Well would you look at that; actual reviews for The Last Guardian - an actual game that is actually releasing tomorrow. A few years ago, we were really struggling to believe that this day would come, but here we are, sitting staring at review scores for the long awaited spiritual successor to the masterpiece that is Shadow of the...
Worth the wait
Fumito Ueda and his team have just been waiting for technology to catch up. The Last Guardian may have taken just under a decade to release, but this isn't a title that's been trapped in development hell, clawing at the broken brains of its creators to get out. The game, available on the PlayStation 4 this week, instead merely...
Taking the cat-bird-dog thing for a walk
We still can't quite believe it: The Last Guardian is just days away from release. To direct attention towards that fact, Sony revealed a new gameplay trailer at its PlayStation Experience press conference, and it's got just about everything that you'd want from such a video. Thrills, spills, and an epic...
Pre-orders are "exceeding expectations"
The wait for The Last Guardian is almost over. Alongside Final Fantasy XV, which launched just a few days ago after a decade or so in development, the successor to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus is one of the few PlayStation titles that we've been covering for what feels like an eternity. We suppose that any...
It's a monumental moment in PlayStation history, so it's only appropriate that Shuhei Yoshida should be involved in the official unboxing video of The Last Guardian's collector's edition. The title, which leaked a short time after this website's inception, has been in production for eons now, but finally launches next month.
Short but sweet
With The Last Guardian finally out in just a few weeks, Sony seems more eager than ever to kick the marketing machine into gear. The title's latest trailer is a cinematic one in which our young hero is being pursued by a bunch of faceless guards. When the boy reaches an unsurprisingly brittle wooden bridge, he has no choice but to...
Tumble and fall
We've seen bits and pieces of The Last Guardian over the last few months, and based purely upon what we've been shown, it's safe to say that the game isn't going to be a 100 miles per hour thrill ride. Of course, if previous titles ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are anything to go by, then we can certainly expect an emphasis on...
As you'd expect from a first-party release, The Last Guardian will be upgraded to take advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro at launch. Fumito Ueda's stunning cat-bird story will see its resolution boosted to leverage 4K televisions (and supersampling on 1080p screens), while also adding HDR support and some performance improvements. The...
Just a whisker away
How can it not live up to expectations? Just look at these new screenshots for The Last Guardian; in a period where Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare have all released in the span of a couple of weeks, it just looks so different. That's not a slight against any of those excellent first-person...
End of an era, almost
When you really take the time to stop and think about just how long we've been following the development of The Last Guardian, it's kind of mind boggling. The spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus, it was officially revealed all the way back in 2009 as a PlayStation 3 title - and now Sony studio head Shuhei Yoshida has...
In a flap
It's almost here. The wait for The Last Guardian has been torturous at times, but Fumito Ueda's magnum opus is finally upon us – and Sony has splashed out on a few billboards to remind everyone. Spotted somewhere in the States, the promotion shows a forlorn Trico peering at the robed protagonist from all of the marketing materials. A...
New locales and gameplay
So here's something we weren't expecting, and from a rather unlikely place: a new trailer for The Last Guardian has been released at the GameStop Expo. The footage features brand new locations and gameplay, which may help to suppress your disappointment over the game's recent delay just a little. We are a little surprised...
Sony's been suspiciously quiet with regards to The Last Guardian since it finally got a release date at E3, so it comes as no real surprise to hear that the PlayStation 4 exclusive has been delayed by a month and a bit. Indeed, the spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus will now launch on the 6th December, as opposed to 25th...
Go big or go home
Ah, The Last Guardian - every time that we mention it we remember that it's actually releasing this October, and we get a warm fuzzy feeling inside. We blame the cat-bird-dog thing for that, by the way, and the giant beast is as adorable as ever in these five fresh screenshots. The pictures don't just focus on our feathered...
It's unquestionably going to be a masterpiece, but much like the US version of ICO, there's a big question mark hanging over The Last Guardian's box art. We actually rather like the image that's been selected – it looks especially tasty on the title's steelbook – but the bog standard release has been buggered up by the additi
We're of course referring to The Last Guardian
In truth, 25th October is a horrible time for The Last Guardian to release, what with Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and… Sigh. Who cares if it flops, though? After all, ICO and Shadow of the Colossus did, too, and they're two of the fine
Praise the colossi
We had no doubt that The Last Guardian would be making an appearance at Sony's E3 2016 conference, but we remained skeptical as to whether we'd get a release date or not. Thankfully, Sony hasn't let us down, finally unveiling that the continually delayed title will grace the PlayStation 4 on 25th October. The date was revealed...
A boy and a bird
IGN's pumping out some great Japan Studio content at the moment, and this latest clip takes you inside the famous first-party for a chat with The Last Guardian director Fumito Ueda. In it he talks about the title's decade-long development cycle, the transition to the PlayStation 4, and much more. It's a great watch if you've been...
Try not to tear up
People often forget that E3 for Sony typically lasts longer than the week-long convention itself, with the platform holder prone to releasing tons of information and trailers prior to the show. And it looks like it's really kicking things off right now, with The Last Guardian undergoing the full blowout treatment on IGN. The...
Enormous amounts of AI code used
Team ICO's talking a big game with The Last Guardian, and you'd be brave to doubt whether the ragtag group can deliver. The PlayStation 4 exclusive's director, Fumito Ueda, did craft two of the greatest titles ever made, after all: ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. And speaking in the latest issue of EDGE, the auteur...
You just gotta believe
The latest issue of EDGE magazine is packing a load of new information about The Last Guardian, the spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus. For quite a while now, the heavily delayed game's been slated for a 2016 release, but we've heard very little about the project since it was brought up at E3 last year. Naturally,...
It'll spoil it, apparently
The Last Guardian has gone dark again. The game was re-revealed to a rapturous response at E3 2015, but it was absent at both the Tokyo Game Show and Paris Games Week. This, according to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, is nothing to worry about – the platform holder's just limiting the title's showings...
The Last Guardian will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show this week, but not with a DualShock 4 controller. Team ICO's long awaited adventure title will be present in the PlayStation booth, but instead of preparing a PlayStation 4 demo for attendees to try, Gen Design – the company created by director Fumito Ueda – has instead built a...
We can't wait to see the bird-dog-cat-thing again
Many couldn't believe their eyes when Sony opened its E3 2015 press conference with a brand new look at The Last Guardian, and to be honest, it still feels a bit weird to be writing about the game as if it's, you know, an actual real thing. After years and years of uncertainty and clearly troubled...
Fly bird cat thing, fly
Since we've been waiting for the The Last Guardian to rise from its supposed grave for around half a decade, it's safe to assume that the game has had a troubled development cycle. When the title was finally revived at Sony's E3 2015 press conference last month, you could almost hear the sigh of relief from PlayStation...
Even if it's endured one of the worst development cycles in gaming history, The Last Guardian still has a smaller budget than Guerrilla Games' new franchise, Horizon: Zero Dawn. That's what Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony's Worldwide Studios, told Eurogamer.net earlier today. After being asked if The Last Guardian was one of the most...
Love it or loathe it, games like The Last Guardian just don't get made. This a blockbuster title in every sense of word, and it clearly has a colossal budget behind it. So, in a year where Ubisoft's big reveal was a Ghost Recon reboot that looked almost identical to its still-in-development The Division, it's refreshing to learn about...
The beast returns
Sony seems as excitable as us with regards to the fact that The Last Guardian is, y'know, actually a real game. The PlayStation Blog's Justin Massongill sat down to talk about the long awaited adventure during the company's post-conference E3 live coverage. You can relive the moment that The Last Guardian was re-revealed...
Sony 'specced up' the footage
Well, this is awkward. When Sony re-revealed The Last Guardian this week, many suggested that it looked similar to the title's PlayStation 3 trailer from all those years ago. "What has Team ICO been doing?" the people with pitchforks cried. Speaking with Kotaku, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida admitted that...
"Sometimes it takes a really long time to realise a vision"
The Last Guardian was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Sony's big E3 2015 media briefing last night. It's taken Fumito Ueda and his team seven long years to get the former PlayStation 3 exclusive up to a standard where it's presentable outside of trailer form, but finally, we got a...
The Last Guardian re-emerged during Sony's big E3 2015 press conference in dramatic fashion last night. Fumito Ueda, the director of the long-in-development first-party game, lapped up plenty of applause following a lengthy gameplay demo, as Shuhei Yoshida quite literally shouted out in excitement on the PlayStation maker's stage. And...
Kept us waiting, huh?
The Last Guardian, a victim of being seemingly canceled numerous times as it struggled through development hell for several years, is no longer a gem that would never see the light of day. It is finally here, and it is coming to the PlayStation 4 in 2016. The gameplay is all too familiar, but we can tell this title is on...
Our final hope
The Last Guardian rumours are in full force right now, with Eurogamer.net corroborating The Guardian's story regarding the long overdue Japan Studio release. According to the site, it's heard from multiple sources over the past six months that Fumito Ueda's bird-meets-boy escapade will be unveiled at E3 2015 – but it stresses that...
Bird on the brain
E3 simply wouldn't be the same without: a) Word of The Last Guardian's imminent re-announcement; b) Word of The Last Guardian's imminent cancellation. It's a testament to the brilliance of both ICO and Shadow of the Colossus that Fumito Ueda's bird-meets-boy escapade is still held in such high-esteem – it's been about eight years...
Fumito Ueda, creator of PlayStation classics like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, must be seriously fed up. If we roll our eyes at every piece of vague The Last Guardian information these days, imagine what it must be like having worked on the title for almost a decade. We suspect that he's sick of the sight of that darned cat bird creature –...
A flap for nothing
Sony said that The Last Guardian is still in development, and it's proved it by reviving the trademark which got abandoned earlier in the week. NeoGAF, again, spotted the platform holder's petition to reclaim the rights to the brand, which was submitted and approved yesterday. The Japanese giant t
The rollercoaster otherwise known as oft-delayed PlayStation exclusive The Last Guardian rides another day, as a SCEE representative has told Videogamer.com that the hotly anticipated Team ICO title is still in production. This follows a report yesterday which suggested that the platform holder had abandoned the release's trademark...
Make of that what you will
Despite the fact that it's been years since we actually saw any evidence that The Last Guardian exists, the almost mythical spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus still manages to make the news with alarming frequency, such is the anticipation surrounding Team ICO's next game. The latest news comes courtesy of a...
"That might be a bit of an exaggeration"
At this point, we’re convinced that the inevitable documentary detailing the production of The Last Guardian will be better than any game that Team ICO actually manage to ship. As part of an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, Sony Worldwide Studios gaffer Shuhei Yoshida reiterated that the long...
The saga continues
It wouldn't be a major videogame industry event without a Sony executive making an offhand remark about The Last Guardian. This time, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny was on hand to make sure that we know the title is still very much a part of the Japanese giant's long term strategy. "There are no new...
Don't get in a flap
The Last Guardian has not been cancelled. Sony has reiterated on multiple occasions this week that the title is still in development, and it gains absolutely nothing from stringing fans along and lying about that fact. In fact, chatting with Polygon, affable executive Shuhei Yoshida h
"We owe the fans," says Yoshida
The Last Guardian has been culled and resurrected more times than we’ve yawned over the past 48 hours, but Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has reiterated categorically in an interview with Eurogamer.net that the title is still very much in production – it’s just not ready to be shown yet...
Emotional rollercoaster hits a corkscrew
Don’t you dare shed a tear for that great, hulking cat-bird just yet, as new Sony Computer Entertainment America president Shawn Layden has reiterated in an interview with Geoff Keighley that The Last Guardian is still in development in Japan. The status of the title was pulled into doubt recently, when IGN...
Causing the Twitter explosion to end all Twitter explosions, IGN recently revealed that it received inside information suggesting that The Last Guardian had been officially cancelled. The hotly anticipated title by Team ICO has been in development for several years now, with a seemingly endless list of rumours
That's the theory
While it may feel like we're beating a dead horse – or, more appropriately, a dead giant dinosaur-bird-thing – we really would like Sony to just tell us what's going on with The Last Guardian. Honestly, we wouldn't even be that mad if the Japanese giant had cancelled the game. Okay, maybe we would be pretty mad, but that would...
Catbirds might fly
Team ICO’s troubled PlayStation exclusive The Last Guardian is still “in the mix” at Sony, executive Scott Rohde has confirmed. Despite the spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus having been in production for some eight years now, the platform holder insists that the title hasn’t been cancelled –
The Late Guardian
The Last Guardian may just be the most excruciating case of vapourware in recorded history. We saw that stunning debut trailer way back before fire was invented, and since then we've been subject to an increasingly painful series of teases. First it was suggested that the title was being moved to the PlayStation 4, and then Jack...
GameStop has issued a statement apologising for causing concern regarding The Last Guardian's development status overnight
The US retailer caused a furore when it contacted customers holding pre-orders for the Team ICO developed title, informing them that the game had been cancelled. Sony immediately followed-up the story, declining that the game had been canned. But with the number of high profile..
Poor Shuhei Yoshida's Twitter feed is a sight for sore eyes this evening
The Worldwide Studios executive spent the best part of the night clearing up rumours that suggested Team ICO's troubled title, The Last Guardian, had been cancelled. It hasn't — but there's definitely some confusion over the matter. Rumours hit overdrive when customers holding pre-orders for the anticipated PlayStation 3..
Legendary PlayStation developer Fumito Ueda -- the creative force behind ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus -- has left Sony, the platform holder has announced
Ueda's departure comes following a series of rumours surrounding the developer's employment. But while Ueda's long-term future remains unclear, Sony confirmed that his immediate commitments are to complete what he started: upcoming PlayStation 3..
Sony's said that Fumito Ueda is "committed to completing" upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Guardian, but has once again managed to completely dodge the issue of the developer's employment
In a statement issued to IGN's Colin Moriarty, a SCEA spokesperson revealed that "Ueda-san is in fact under contract and is committed to completing his work on The Last Guardian." This follows a..
Things aren't going smoothly at Team ICO it seems
Just days after creative lead Fumito Ueda reassured fans regarding the development of The Last Guardian, news of another departure has surfaced. This time it's the game's executive producer, who's left Sony for London based casual games studio, Bossa. Yoshifusa Hayama worked as the executive producer on The Last Guardian, as well as ICO and Final..
Fumito Ueda has responded to rumours suggesting that he has left Shadow Of The Colossus developer Team ICO, affecting development of the studio's next project
In a short Twitter message, the creative powerhouse said that development of The Last Guardian was still on track and that fans have nothing to worry about. While Ueda did not outright deny the rumours surrounding his employment, he at least..
There'll be some partying going on at developer Naughty Dog this evening
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has scooped up nine nominations for this year's VGAs. Amongst its accolades include nominations for Best Graphics, Best Action Adventure Game, Best Performance (both male and female) and Game Of The Year. Naughty Dog has also been nominated in the Best Studio category. Uncharted 3 will face up..
There's a variety of behind-the-scenes videos included on the ICO & Shadow Of The Colossus Collection
Most of them pertain to the development of its titular games, but amongst them is a snippet of The Last Guardian. Much of the footage is reused from various trailers and demonstrations, but there's a few new bits-and-bobs hidden in there. Needless to say it looks amazing. [Thanks TSA]
We're currently playing through the remastered versions of ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus and, to pre-empt our review, we are having an absolute blast
Both games have a subtlety that's, at times, effortless but yet majestic in execution. It's the kind of magic we expect from The Last Guardian when it eventually releases in the near future. But with the game a no-show at this year's Tokyo Game Show,..
Shuhei Yoshida has admitted in an interview with VG247 that Team ICO is "making progress" with The Last Guardian, despite development not moving as quickly as hoped
"The Last Guardian team has been making progress," Shuhei told the website. "Its been very difficult in terms of seeing the progress: not as fast as wed been hoping for, and the team has been under big..
The Team ICO Collection includes more than two of the most revered titles in PlayStation history
A post on the PlayStation Blog this afternoon has revealed the game's full range of bonus video content. The on-disc videos include prototype footage of ICO and Shadow Of The Colossus, as well as a round-table discussion with Fumito Ueda (creator), Kenji Kaido (producer) and Junichi Hosono (designer)..
Everyone's favourite arthouse development suite, Team ICO, has made a bold move into the head offices of SCE this week -- presumably so top figures like Kaz Hirai can ensure creative lead Fumito Ueda actually finishes the studio's latest title, The Last Guardian
Fumito described the move as a "major reformation of our development environment", designed to set Team ICO up for bigger and..
Team ICO's gaffer Fumito Ueda is not going to E3
Apparently. See, while we've no real reason to doubt Ueda's Twitter confirmation, we seem to recall David Jaffe pulling a similar stunt last year, only to roll up in Sweet Tooth's ice-cream truck and announce Twisted Metal. Of course, there's a good chance Ueda is telling the truth, in which case The Last Guardian will probably not be present at E3..
"The boy was smiling," reads an excerpt from the English translation of the upcoming ICO novel, Castle In The Mist
"Whatever happened to the people in this city had happened so quickly, he hadnt even had time to realize that he was about to die." The book's due out on August 16th, presumably to drum up anticipation for the upcoming Team ICO Collection and The Last Guardian. There's a..
Deep down, we all knew it was coming
But now it's official: Sony's confirmed that both The Last Guardian and Team ICO Collection will miss their respective Holiday and Spring 2011 release windows. We'll give you chance to have a little sob... Producer Fumito Ueda was regretful on the PlayStation Blog, apologising for the delay but stating it was necessary to improve the quality of the product..
A forum post on Gamekult has been gathering traction across the 'net this morning
The supposed post details much of Sony's E3 announcement plans, as well as some specifics beyond. The leak hints that an NGP price and release date will be announced at E3, in addition to the device's real name. Seven first-party titles are set to be announced for the device alongside the reveal. In addition, Hideo..
If you were expecting to play Fumito Ueda's avant-garde PS2 releases remastered in glorious HD (and 3D) this Spring, well, we suggest you stop
A representative for K-Mart and Sears has said on the Cheap Ass Gamer forums that the Team ICO Collection has been pushed into the holidays. Looks like this Holiday, actually, from my last meeting with Sony, he said. The implications of this are..
There's a beauty to The Last Guardian that's evident each and every time the game is shown
It's not necessarily a technical thing — the game is definitely pretty, but certainly not on par with the likes of Uncharted or Killzone. It's something to do with the art, colour palette, and perhaps, most importantly, the animation. There's an endearing soft look to it. As such, if there's anyone..
A bunch of new information on the hotly anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive, The Last Guardian, has rolled out of this week's Famitsu magazine
The Japanese gaming bible has a four-page feature on the game, as well as an interview with Team ICO boss, Fumito Ueda. According to the interview, Torico — the cat, rat, dog thing from the trailers — will not be able to communicate with the protagonist..
A TV segment aired in Japan has revealed a sneaky little glimpse at new footage from The Last Guardian
The clip shows Fumito Ueda on-stage at Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference, before heading into Team ICO's esteemed studio and capturing Ueda looking contemplative at some TLG development footage. The new gameplay, shown at around 5:32 of the video clip, show the boy throwing things at the..
Ueda's clear that The Last Guardian is not a "pet game"
He stated as much in a Q&A session on the PlayStation Blog, explaining that the player will be protected by the giant animal from the trailers. The title suggests that while the giant griffin-like animal might be the last protector of its kind, the player might run into other large beasts. Ueda's quick to point out that the player will not..
Team ICO's director, Fumito Ueda, has revealed that the upcoming The Last Guardian may include optional support for the PlayStation Move controller
Speaking with Dengeki Online , the Shadow Of The Colossus man noted that Move support is a possibility when the game launches late next year. While Ueda was keen on the possibility of Move, he did stress that any support would be "optional"..
For the past couple of years, Fumito Ueda and his Team ICO studio have been developing the technologies and concepts that will be used in The Last Guardian
Now, the legendary developer has revealed that his team have moved into full production of the anticipated title. Weve been working on the final concept for the game over the past year, and Im pleased to say that we have now locked that..
The Last Guardian could be the most important PlayStation 3 title to date
There's a case for LittleBigPlanet, Uncharted and Gran Turismo — all of which are stunning, but parallel in some way. But Fumito Ueda's Team ICO possess a brilliance unmatched across the industry. When Team ICO announce a game, the industry listens. The Last Guardian may not be a commercial hit; but it could end up being..
Famitsu's released a new set of direct-feed shots from The Last Guardian
As you might imagine, they are utterly gorgeous. The new screens are a bit small due to Famitsu's compression, so here's hoping we get some biggies direct from Sony soon. Fumito Ueda's due to have a big presence at TGS this year. We're expecting to see more of The Last Guardian, aswell as the formal announcement of the..
WalMart's on a roll
No sooner have they got tongues wagging about a possible sequel to MAG, but they're also listing an Easter re-release for the oft-touted ICO and Shadow Of the Colossus collection. Sony's yet to announce the collection, though it could make an appearance at next week's TGS. The package is far too anticipated to not happen, expect it to land around the time of The Last Guardian.
It might not have appeared on Sony's TGS line-up, but Team Ico's Fumito Ueda wants us to know that there will be something new on The Last Guardian soon
In an interview with Famitsu Ueda noted, I believe well soon be able to make some announcements that will please everyone, so please look forward to it." There won't be a better venue than Tokyo Game Show, but we still feel like the..
Despite Team Ico's The Last Guardian being promised for Tokyo Game Show by honcho Fumito Ueda himself, the game's looking more and more like it's going to be a no-show
Well, certainly in playable form anyway. While Sony might well be keeping their biggest release close to their chest — the game's not been mentioned on their TGS line-up. That would hint at the game not being available in playable..
Fumito Ueda, the PlayStation legend behind titles such as Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus, has revealed on his newly formed Twitter account that his team will be showing "something" at Tokyo Game Show later in the year
Amidst a bunch of lifestyle related Tweets, Ueda declared: "We should be able to show something at Tokyo Game Show, so look forward to it." The Last Guardian wasn't..
Perhaps the biggest story overshadowing Sony's E3 press conference last night was not what was showed, but what wasn't -- most notably Team Ico's The Last Guardian
Sony's Scott Rohde's has explained that the game's absence was due to timing and nothing more. The SCEA man told 1Up: The best way I can answer that is something that Sony does and were very proud of this is that were going..
With E3 speculation reaching an all-time high (we're finding it hard to keep our excitement for both E3 and the World Cup in check), the blogosphere's literally bulging with rumours of megaton-esque announcements from every corner of the industry
We've put together a list of some of the most frequent rumours, and why they're unlikely to come true. Shenmue III (SEGA) - it breaks every inch of our..
With E3 mere days away now, the industry's anticipation is nearing fever-pitch
With pretty high stakes all around for the platform holders, it can be easy to over-look the actual core of the event in anticipation of megaton announcements and new hardware — that's the games. As we continue our E3 build-up, we list our five most anticipated PlayStation games of the show. In order to appear on this..
We tried to buy a copy of both Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus from eBay not too long ago
At £70 we were outbid. Damn those games for being so rare and so sought after. Which is why, ahead of Team Ico's upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian, it would be lovely to get an HD re-release of the classic PS2 titles. That's exactly what's being rumoured in this unconventional post over at VG247..
Fumito Ueda and his pals at Team Ico are to blow the doors of The Last Guardian at some point this year — the type of video game no other company can match. Microsoft may have Master Chief and the frat boys of Gears Of War, but Sony have a boy and his giant cat-bird thing. Could the differences be any more apparent? Ueda mentioned there would be a big blow-out on the game at some point,..
SCEJ has launched the official website for Team Ico's upcoming The Last Guardian today
There's not a lot of new stuff to see on the website, but its launch will come as a welcome reminder that the game is still coming soon. We'd put money on a Japanese launch this year.
Sony really are very lucky to have one of the biggest innovators in video games working exclusively for their platform
The man behind Shadow Of The Colossus and Ico, Fumito Ueda, is currently working on The Last Guardian. And speaking to Famitsu, Ueda has confirmed his ideal that "this generation is about expressing ideas".As a creator, technical skill is important, but I really feel..
It's weird to think that Fumito Ueda - the head of Sony's Team ICO studio, and one of the most original game developers today - wants to make an FPS
Honestly, he told G4 so:"I have an interest in making first-person game." Ueda cited Valve's Half-Life series as FPS games he likes, stating, "Usually, you have to incorporate storytelling with constraints, but the way... implemented..
Kotaku published a rather interesting and candid chat with Team Ico's lead man, Fumito Ueda last week
In that piece there were two mega-tons, of kind, for fans. Firstly, Ueda dropped hints that he would have involvement in the recently announced Shadow Of The Colossus movie. The game, which was a technical masterpiece for the Playstation 2, followed the exploits of a small boy hunting giant..
Well it's not much, but you don't need to see much when it comes to The Last Guardian
