The Last Guardian’s Creator Fumito Ueda Will Give News As Soon as Possible

The Last Guardian's Creator Fumito Ueda, who suddenly left Sony in 2011 but is reportedly still working on the game as a freelance, has been quite tight lipped both about the game and about his future projects, but apparently he's just waiting for the right time to give us an update, and that right time could be soon. (Fumito Ueda, PS3, PS4, The Last Guardian)

Soon as possible? I'm sure it's "possible" for them to say "yep, it's ok, it's coming for the PS4"

Would that really be that hard to say? that's all anyone wants to hear, I can understand they can't share an actual release date

That's if it's coming for the PS4. I'm still not too sure about that. Why do they keep it so much under wraps?
mikeslemonade  +   650d ago
News that there is gonna be news is a good step for Last Guardian.
Eonjay  +   650d ago
He has 24 hours. That is all.
pyramidshead  +   650d ago
I don't think it is, unless they're doing a cross-gen port sometime in the future. Swear there was an article on here about Sony hiring for PS3 development on TLG.
dmonee  +   650d ago
They keep it under wraps because the developer could never quite get their hands wrapped around the PS3 architecture and secondly, the thing has bee a cluster F since the begining. If or when it is released it willowy likely be a disaster. This fiasco could close this developer down
minimur12  +   650d ago
Sony have said that they'll be supporting the ps3 until like 2015 so there every chance this will be on ps3, maybe even both consoles.

Ueda is the modern day Miyamoto of gaming

At a young age he has achieved quite a lot!

Shadow of the Colossus broke the ground for so many PS3 and Xbox 360 games in regards to third person shooting, platforming and horse riding

minimalism, story telling by showing and not telling!

even Naughty Dog and LionHead admits their PS3 games were inspired by ICO and SOTC

even today there are dedicated SOTC game archeologists constantly looking for secrets!

Cant wait to hear about it

So basically what this means is he will give us news 5 years from now.
Kingthrash360  +   650d ago
whats sad about your comment...the possibility that that's true.

You almost made me choke. LMAO.

"As soon as possible, I think I’ll be able to give some kind of update."

What the hell does that mean coming from them of all people ?

I love this developer but almost 10 years since their last game and the only thing in between 2005 and 2014 is a 2 minute trailer, and a statement like that...i'm sorry but it carries zero weight.

I just sold my ps3 and have a ps4,if this doesn't come to ps4 I'll be Disappointed but I would buy a ps3 just 4 this.
GribbleGrunger  +   650d ago | Funny
At this rate the game will be renamed 'The late Guardian'
blackbeld  +   650d ago
Hahaha thats funny.

Late Guardian it is.
jessupj  +   649d ago
Oh that's gold lol.

It is getting a little ridiculous at this point. How long has the game been in development? How much money has Sony spent on this game so far? Crickey!
JimmyLmao  +   649d ago
whewww, made me laugh
BABY-JEDI  +   649d ago
It's more like the 'can't be bothered guardian'
Well here's hoping that it comes out 2014. ; )
ado908  +   649d ago
You killed the joke lol thats too long to even laugh at
u-bEttA-rUn  +   649d ago
thank you so much for that laugh lol
Back-to-Back  +   649d ago
The Vaporware Guardian is more apt.
Unreal01  +   650d ago
Am I missing something or have we seen virtually nothing from this game? Why is there so much hype and demand for it? I personally think the moment has gone and it is not in development anymore.
Abriael  +   650d ago
Unless you assume that several people are just lying about it over and over, for the heck of it, and they've teased it at the PS4's launch for the heck of it, it's still in development.

There is so much hype and demand because the past two games were insanely memorable and super iconic in the gaming industry. So of course people want another one.
Belking  +   650d ago
Lol..they might as well go ahead and cancel this game. They're obviously struggling to get it done. A whole generation has past and not even so much as one gameplay video since it was announced.......and it obviously wasn't moved to ps4 early on because it would of been ready for launch. It's been too long now. The interest in the games has faded away.
ELpork  +   650d ago
They moved FF13 from PS2 to PS3... A mistake in my mind, but the concept isn't unheard of.
DigitalRaptor  +   650d ago
A number of inaccuracies in your comment, as usual:

"they might as well go ahead and cancel this game."

Cancelling this game would mean they have kept it on 'life support' and draining their finances for years whilst reaping no benefit. It's still in development for a reason, and they would've cancelled it years ago when they first admitted to complicated AI issues and PS3 development. By the same token, FFXV should've been cancelled years ago too, but we now have an incredible looking JRPG that we know is coming out in the next year or two.

"not even so much as one gameplay video since it was announced"

You wouldn't know about it cause you don't care about this game, but there are brief snippets of (now old) gameplay in one of the TGS developer diaries here: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

"it obviously wasn't moved to ps4 early on because it would of been ready for launch"

The problems with The Last Guardian's development were officially identified in 2012, so if you think that completely re-factoring the PS3's Cell-specific code for an X86 console architecture and having it finished, polished and ready to release within a year, for PS4's release, you are more delusional than I suspected.

"The interest in the games has faded away."

Speak for yourself (someone who was never going to play the game anyway).

This game still has a guaranteed market for those who love ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. Those games didn't sell ridiculous amounts, and neither was TLG going to, but they are legacy games and have a legacy following. Sony are keeping development going because people like Yoshida believe in what the game is trying to achieve. As soon as a PS4 version is announced, just watch that interest skyrocket again.

molsen81  +   650d ago
The sad part about this is that I have a child born 2 months after the announcement of this game. I guess one day I'll tell him about this great game when it finally releases when he's off to college.
dmonee  +   650d ago
I'm done with this game! I don't care anymore and refuse to even read an article featuring the game including this one. I don't care if it gets ported to the PS4. By the time it is released I will look and play last gen. The developer really screwed up with this one. R.I.P. The last guardian
desertpunk86  +   650d ago
japanese devs are too lazy to finish games specially ones that work for sony.
jessupj  +   649d ago
I don't know how to respond to the idiocy of this statement.
Angerfist  +   650d ago
I think this game is just so different that they have a hard time getting a decent amount of levels or gameplay to justify releasing it. From what we seen years ago it looked crazy ambitious. Good thing for them they are funded by Sony, otherwise this would have been canned long ago.
ho0lee0h  +   650d ago
I don't even know the concept about this game. I just know there's a giant hippogryph and a little boy. It reminds me of Harry Potter.
WeAreLegion  +   650d ago
I'm sure we'll get news about it at E3...

...in 2025.
first1NFANTRY  +   649d ago
Hurry the f#ck up my gosh. How long does it take to create on bloody game? We all know their not incompetent but it's been years since the reveal. Another reason why I hate devs who reveal games which aren't coming out till 5 years from now.

The Last Guardian will be announced as a launch title for the PS5 but be delayed.

Is it seriously too hard for them to just take a screenshot? -_-
Tainted Gene  +   649d ago
I can see ppl still supporting/waiting/hoping for this game to be released.

But its also understandable way some ppl have become VERY cynical of this game in the past few years.... with the constant "delays" and non-announcements it's unsurprisingly ppl will view/treat this as a "Duke Nukem Forever" title (taking nearly decade before it release after years of rumors and "updates").
Goku781  +   649d ago
Please stop talking about this game, until it comes out.
snookiegamer  +   649d ago
With an install base of over 80 Million consoles, the smart money is that this should appear on PS3. Unfortunately, not all money is smart....still, it's encouraging that TLG is still in the pipeline.

I suspect a PS4 port later down the line. Maybe :/
DoctorJones  +   649d ago
They've just finished the title sequence, and are now moving on to starting the first level.
jollygoodchap8  +   649d ago
So much ridicule..lol

If it ever does come out I hope it turns out great, and peoples heads explode from its awesomeness.

I don't have much hope as of late though, but my fingers are crossed.
northpaws  +   649d ago
I want to make a wild guess.... What if it will release with the rumoured VR headset? That's why they cannot say anything until both are ready. Imagine you can interact with the guardian in first person VR view. XD
