It’s been five E3’s since we’ve heard much of anything about Team Ico’s long awaited project, The Last Guardian, in a big sense. Sure, it’s been referenced as “still being developed,” but that’s a little too bare bones to go off of. Many gamers have clung to little more then faith in the hopes that something will be said about the game, but with the passing of so many events, and even the recent Playstation Experience, it’s been tough to stay positive.
That might have all changed this month as creator Fumito Ueda just recently completed an interview for this week’s Dengeki Playstation (via Kotaku) that not only is the game still being developed, but it might be coming to the next-gen side of things. In the interview, Ueda answered a poll question and was asked what his most memorable Playstation memory was. His answer? “The Last Guardian, by which I mean all the hardships and the unforeseen amount of time required than what was originally thought.”
Later on in the interview, he was asked to share a memory of a game he worked on in 2014, or an upcoming title, and he had this to say: “Talks with Sony Computer Entertainment on The Last Guardian have been ironed out, and we’re making progress under completely new conditions. I’m also working on some other things that I’ll hopefully be able to show in time if progress is smooth.”
While that isn’t a lot to go on, at least there is renewed hope that The Last Guardian will see the light of day. Perhaps it’ll be a PS4 title now, or….maybe…a PS Vita life saver (nah…probably PS4)?
