Gamersmint: The latest issue of PSM3 is carrying an extensive feature on Team ICO’s upcoming game, The Last Guardian and one of Gamersmint’s readers have an issue with him and we’ve collected all the juicy details for you below.
his is seriously my most anticipated title on the PS3 right now, I can't wait to experience this. Ueda's games are so different and amazing.
And why does the world have to end in 2012?
Because Sony already has too many amazing AAA exclusives coming out this year. I am very happy I bought a PS3.
The world ends in 2012 because of the sins of America. No, I'm just kidding. It has something to do with Justin Bieber. I wish they'd hurry up and share some gameplay with us on this. The sad thing is that they never have to show anything, and this game will still sell like crazy. EDIT: I just realized that Justin Bieber IS a sin of America...so I guess I got it right the first time.
TLG will be so Beautiful and Amazing, can't wait...
I can't wait to play it either. Love the idea and the epic scale.
Ueda has assured that the game will be released by the end of this year, atleast in Japan Please come this year!
Great, i was waiting for some info on The last guardian anyway
"Ueda didn’t reveal who the Last Guardian is, Torico or the boy. He said we’ll have to find out" Sounds like a spoiler, Ueda.
. "Ueda has assured that the game will be released by the end of this year, atleast in Japan." --------- 2012 for the English version then? Oh well... EDIT: I hope ICO x Shadow Of The Colossus Collection in summer 2011.
Damn.. If the world ends in 2012 I'm gonna be pissed ;P
@dan Its dec 2012 sure it will arrive b4 then lol.
it won't end like the movie. There will be alien invasion. Need nanosuit start to save money!
Unsure on that one. Recently got an update from Amazon saying that the release date for the ICO collection was changed to 12/31/2011. Meaning, they're not sure it will release in 2011.
Aw Japan only that sucks I was hoping for a 2011 release date, but maybe their is still a chance it will also release in other countries as well im hoping.
You can import the Japanese version if you can read Japanese.
a must buy for this one. 2011 YEAR OF THE PS3!!!!!!
...Sony's doing it like 2009 again but with more awesome.
More like 2007,2008,2009 all combined but better. 2007 - Uncharted: DF, Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction 2008 - MGS4, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2 2009 - Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Uncharted 2 2011 - Uncharted 3, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, LBP2, Resistance 3, Killzone 3, inFAMOUS 2 Sony has exclusive sequels for nearly all of the PS3's biggest releases of 07-09 and all these sequels look like the best in their series. There's no doubt in my mind that this will be the greatest year for the PS3 yet. 2011 is going to be hard to top. If only MGS5 was coming out, this year would be perfect.
I never got to play ICO or Shadow of colossus sad thing :( I will be sure to get the HD remake. But this game just looks stunning i will get this to day 1 looks like a great buy for anyone.
I'm 99.9% sure that The Last Guardian will make me cry
what about the other .1%? does that kill germs? :P
This and Infamous 2 are most wanted. Wouldnt really surprise me if they moved it to 2012. Sony has so many games in 2011 already.
Looks like 2012 NA release date, but that's fine. With the HD remake of SotC and ICO, I can wait! TLG is going to be awesome
I wouldn't necessarily give in to 2012. Remember, the single biggest issue that has to be handled for the NA version is localization. There are other matters but they are minor since it is likely the game will remain intact and without edits between Japan and the rest of the world. And since intermediaries can handle localization, which can actually begin as early as this summer, then I wouldn't count out a holiday release in NA.
So who is the last guardian? the kid or the creature? :D btw I absolutely cannot wait for this and Versus.
Well, if i were to pick which one I would want to be my guardian, i would pick the creature, but for all we know, the kid could have some amazing powers hidden within.. So, i guess you never know ;)
I would think the boy is The Last Guardian. What is he guarding? Well, he doesn't know himself, but what he's guarding is the "bloodline" of the Last Colossi.
well the colossi were basicaly guardians, keeping that demon thing from being reborn, so my quess would be that the creature is the last colossi.
a lot of fans are waiting for this...dont release it until its perfect!!!! even if it means 2012 release!
I am really stoked about this game i loved Shadow of the Colossus and Ico!
i really hope it is a good game and i really look forward to playing it ... but i don't want to hype it up so much and expect so much and get let down if it doesn't meet what i am expecting. also it might turn out to be a game that I don't have a "taste" for while others love it .. won't know until I play.
best news i ever seen
The 2011 Release date for at least Japan doesn't surprise me...I know I've mentioned on a few occasions in the past month or two that I thought the same thing would probably happen. Releasing a game like TLG in the West during the extremely tough Fall/Holiday Season where it's been mostly sequels reigning supreme over the last couple of years wouldn't be all that great for the game in terms of breathing room: Resistance 3, UC3, Mass Effect 3, Elder Scrolls Skyrim, new Call of Duty, Gears of War 3, etc... TLG would probably get overlooked in the West if released near or the same month as those games. Early 2012 would definitely give TLG much better exposure in the West. Possibly having to wait a few extra months for my most wanted game of this gen. period wouldn't really bother me...I mean, I've already waited this long, so a few extra months won't be all that bad. :)
"The game’s original music is not the one presented in the trailer. It’s just a test track being used." That's kind of a shame if they're talking about the very first trailer. The theme from Miller's crossing fit this game perfectly and is a beautiful piece of music in it's own right.
Would be more happy if this game was coming this year, but that's not happening. The quote on difficulty is my concern, I don't want any help from the game, that's what made shadow of the colossus so good for me.
"There will be less fighting sequences in TLG than in ICO" I love team ICO and their games, but this quote troubles me. :(
one fot he best look game ever... i still need to play ICO and SOTC
No doubt in my mind this will be nothing short of a masterpiece and I expect many articles naming it the no.1 title of this generation.
Ueda's games have always offered an excellent experience. Fall 2011 Japan usually means 1st quarter 2012 for the rest of the world. We've got the Ico and SOTC collection to keep us at bay in the mean time. This could be a big title in Feb 2012 for Sony.
