Majin 'Completely Different' from The Last Guardian

Ever since Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom was first revealed, a contingent of gamers have been writing it off as a "clone" of The Last Guardian, even though nobody's seen more than ten minutes of Team ICO's game. Destructoid asked producer Daisuke Uchiyama what he made of these accusations of plagiarism.

I played the demo and it was hella boring. They should be embracing any comparisons to Last Guardian.

strange how many varying views I've seen on this game's demo, I personally want to get the game just for the lighthearted feel of it. Sure it wasn't the most exciting demo I played but it was still very enjoyable and I think I would like the interactions between the boy and the Majin, even if the Majin voice is not the greatest.

That said no one can ever test Team ICO for game atmosphere and emotional impact, the two games are not really alike.

the heck is Majin ??
is it a game ???
if it is then i swear to god this is the first time i ever hear this name

and that big thing in that pic looks creepy

gaffyh4990d ago

I was looking forward to playing Majin, but the demo was extremely slow and boring, so I will give it a miss now.

despair4990d ago

yea the game is under the radar but there was a demo up a while back. Only reason I know about the game is from a Qore episode they talked to the developers.

Chris3994991d ago

Graphics were pretty rough and the combat was unintuitive. I liked the fact that it was more action oriented than SOTC, but I didn't feel that the action was executed well.

The voice-work was leaning toward painful too.

But you havent played the last gardian.

@ disagree:

well , have you played the Last Guardian?

mrcash4990d ago

why should they embrace them when the game isnt even out, for all we know it might be horrible, im looking forward to it so i hope it isnt but lets not be stupid.

I thought it was obvious that this game was completely different from The Last Guardian. The only thing that's the same is you have a big friend helping you.

SuperKing4990d ago

I heard some former ICO developers worked on this. Might check it out.

and solve puzzles

They are in fact so similar that puzzles me how they are making Last Guardian, when now offers nothing new

They should redesign the game or make another one, otherwise would loose big

I've never seen a more deluded comment in my life.

-End statement

maxcer4990d ago

its always like that around here, people claim this game or that game is the best but the bloody thing isn't even out yet.

Shane Kim4990d ago

You are a well known Bot labwarrior, you spew the same shit in GT forums as well. Therefore your comments are of no relevance.

poopface14990d ago

these games are a rip off of a boy and his blob on NES right?

jneul4990d ago

you really done it now, way to be the most wrong person on here, no one has played on the last guardian, so you cannot say how it works at all...

Thought I was the only one who remembered Trinity lol very underrated

Yui_Suzumiya51d ago

WET and Quantum Theory were both phenomenal

P_Bomb51d ago

I remember Stranglehold! One of the first DLC packs of its time. A bit expensive, but cheap by today’s standards.

Another PS3 hidden gems list, and yet again Time Crisis 4 and Time Crisis Razin' Storm get snubbed. Such fun games, that shouldn't be forgotten. If only we got a home port of Time Crisis 5: Mastermind Edition.

WET is something I wish they'd remake, they had so many great ideas but not all of them were executed properly

It had a lot of potential

Also Wanted Weapons of Fate is another game that had some new fun gameplay ideas.
