The Last Guardian Still Exists
With all the brouhaha about the PS4 and Xbox One the past two weeks, you might have missed two small bits of news, both of which have to do with the beleaguered “The Last Guardian.”
First up, during an interview last week for the PS4 launch with Spike TV, Shuhei Yoshida (SCE Worldwide President) was asked about the long awaited title. Yoshida told Spike that he had “picked up the controller” and that it was “very pretty” but he “couldn’t recall” if the controller was a DualShock 3 or 4.
Now this week, Edge Magazine has a very brief interview with the man himself, Fumito Ueda (Ico & Shadow of the Colossus), in which Ueda talks about the difficulties of a now 8 year development cycle and apologizes to fans for the unacceptably long wait. Unfortunately, the interview makes no mention as to what system or when The Last Guardian might be coming out.
Now these two things might seem like small potatoes, but, they do show us that The Last Guardian is still alive and still on Sony’s radar. In the famous words of Parappa, we just “gotta believe!”
