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.

"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.

colonel1793694d 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.

The Last Guardian Is One of Gaming’s Most Beautiful Depictions of Friendship

Friendship is hard to depict accurately, but The Last Guardian does a good job of showing all its ups and downs through Trico and the boy.

Technical issues aside, this is easily one of my favorite games from last gen.

ClayRules2012613d ago (Edited 613d ago )

I couldn’t agree more. I’ll never forget the emotional experience I had with this game. After waiting all those years, and than to finally play it. It was a visual beauty, along with offering a story/friendship between the 2 characters that was unique and unforgettable. Far surpassed my expectations. A masterpiece!

Technical issues aside, never have I played anything quite like it!

I enjoyed the game but it started out too simple and easy. If the entire game was as intense and challenging as the last 20% it would have been a 10/10 experience.

EvertonFC614d ago

Great game, so underrated. One of my favourites and top 20 games of all time

I managed to grab the collectors edition for £40 about a year after it released. Was an enjoyable game, but I had just finished Shadow of the colossus, and whilst I enjoyed it, it was not as good when compared.
