Fumito Ueda: The Last Guardian is under earnest development

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus — two games that almost always get up whenever people discuss whether video games can be both fun to play and truly "art" — are available right now, for free, in HD glory, for PlayStation Plus users. (PS3, PS4, The Last Guardian)

"However, SCE Japan Studio, who's working on The Last Guardian, also has titles like Puppeteer and Knack, and those are only the ones currently announced. Those are taking priority right now."

I wished they had chosen to put their efforts into TLG over Knack. It could have been a marvelous launch title.

This is definitely a PS4 game now. It was announced in 2009, when the PS4 was already in porduction, and they had a lot of trouble with development because of the PS3 limitations. Mark Cerny is working with Japan Studio, so they surely knew about the PS4 since early development, and because of that, it is most likely that they decided to start over on the PS4.

The reason that we have been waiting for so long is that, obviously, the PS4 took time to be developed and announced. Now that it has been announced, Sony wouldn't risk The Last Guardian to be a launch title because it is more niche than mainstream, so they created Knack. The Last Guardian will be out by 2015 at the latest, when the install base is better. This game is going to impress with the graphics and animations. It already did on the PS3, and with the potential of PS4, it can only get better.

I hope you are correct...I really do

I'm glad you said Knack because Puppeteer looks AMAZING.

No surprise to hear they're still doing something with the last guardian, it's been a highly anticipated titles for YEARS. I still remember when the game trailer first broke on Gamersyde. Was at the top of the page here for a while.

why is puppeteer not being ported to ps4?? thats good launch game if i ever saw one.
colonel179  +   902d ago
When I first knew about Puppeteer I was like MEH.. but after watching some trailers, this game is just truly amazing and jaw-dropping. It if a gorgeous game and the only thing I'm praying for is that it's not a really short game.

It is amazing how people can come up with this ideas. This game is truly innovative. I don't care if this was a game for Wii U, Xbox or Atari; innovation and originality is needed, and this game nails it. I am very impressed.

I watched the trailer for this again last night. It looks unbelievably beautiful to this day.
HaHa_Ostrich  +   902d ago
Its sad that a game like Knack gets higher priority than The Last Guardian. But hey, at least its alive.
jay2  +   902d ago
We won't see it!

Arrested development maybe. This game is vaporware at the moment. One trailer six years ago people. I loved the two prior games but this is approaching Duke Nukem Forever territory.

What really grinds my gears is buying a system for certain games like this and VS13 only to be told nearly a decade later to buy the next system for them. If not for that I'd be more forgiving of the situation here. The teams obviously genius status and sometimes that takes a lot of work and ideas. Maybe its the equivilant to writers block. Maybe they can't turn their idea into compelling gameplay idk. I just hope it isn't dead and that the wait is worth it. Mighty big shoes to fill here.

I'd have loved Ico/SOTC to get a real remake in the meantime (not a HD port). After seeing how ridiculously beautiful Wind Waker is I immediately thought of SOTC. I'd have loved for that to be redone like Halo where I could switch between the old and new. Oh well at least I can replay it again.
