Having been in and out of production for more than five years, The Last Guardian has not followed a typical schedule for a major video game release. As such, designer Fumito Ueda is somewhat concerned about a number of the game’s aspects.

Speaking in Edge #294, Ueda explains, “As you know, the development period has been very long, so there have been some times where it was quite difficult for me to keep my motivation up. And also, since this year we will se the game’s release, I do have some worries.”

Regarding the dynamic between the two main characters, Ueda also says, “It would be a lie to say that I have no worries, but another game where you can completely control a creature wouldn’t be enjoyable for me because there are a lot out there where you can do that. I think I’ve had enough of them.”

Fingers crossed Ueda’s innovations pays off. Originally announced all the way back in 2009, the project went silent. The Last Guardian was then revealed last year at E3 with an extended gameplay demo. While there is still no firm release date, look for a lot more information to come from Sony’s conference next month. For all your The Last Guardian coverage, stay tuned to Gamespresso.

    Gamers are so funny especially Sony gamers. Many of them have been excited for this game about a boy and his “giant chicken dog.” Really? Even the designer can’t get excited for it. People, give it up. No new footage of the game in years. The graphics still looks like a PS3 game and if the game should ever come out after two going on three generations of consoles, I doubt it will be the masterpiece Sony gamers are expecting it to be. Well I guess they can keep hoping since it builds excitement but for what? Nothing to see here folks. Move on.

      AHAHAHAH!!! OH SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You sound MAD SALTY!!!!!! loool….

      This is exactly why gamers liek you get called ‘CoD DudeBros’ you think every game NEEDS guns a splash of ‘Merica and some more ‘flashy flashy pew pew’!
      You dont understand or see the beauty in intricacy and subtlety! So a game liek this was NEVER intended for a brain dead gamer like you anyways so keep your uneducated stupid fucking opinion to yourself!!!

      The graphics compliment the games ART STYLE very well and quite clearly you’re one of those idiots who dont know the difference between graphics and art stlye! because theres loads of videos online showing you the much improved graphics between PS4 and PS3 lool!

      Just because us Playstation gamers support a wide range of our exclusives doesn’t mean you have to hate lool.. Were not a community of 3 games series aka ‘Halo (which doesnt even sell well anymore ahahah), Forza ad Gears of War’ We have a who lotta games to pick from.. so keep your brain dead gaming habits over wherever the hell you play which i assume is Xbox lool.

      This game will do well im sure of it.. and what are you talking about 3 generations of games..!? It was announced ofr PS3 but is coming out for PS4.. so unless you’re a retard or cant count thats only jumped 1 generation of consoles since it’s announcement on another!?

      Man you try to hard you should stop trying sooo harddd loool

        It ain’t gonna do “well”…..Its going to do OK at best….There is a difference between the Xbot COD bros that only play Murica games and delusional Sony fanboys who seem to think Team Ico games do massive numbers when in reality Ico massively flopped, Shadows of the Colossus massively flopped, and this will likely flop. But it will be good, It IS a super massive niche title

          it wont do “ok” it’s goign to do well.. it CERTAINLY will surpass 1 million sales! Thats for DAMN SURE.. if The order can push past a million in sales you better be sure a game that people have waited for since 98/09 will sell over a million, and you can come back to this comment when it releases to tell me how it went if you want to.

          You DO realise that ICO and Shadow Of Colossus HD remaster on PS3 sold well above a million copies right…? :S.. like i know they wont push the 5+ millions but it damn sure will push past 1 million!

      There have been 2 generations since the PS3 wow, I must have completely missed out on them…Considering it was announced in 2010 and devevlopment was moved to PS4 due to the limitations of the PS3 thats ONE gen…..It wasn’t announced as a PS2 title, nor is the PS5 right around the corner

    Well given their track record with the exceptional outstanding ICO and SotC, i don’t think we have any reason to be worried.

    • bigevilworldwide1 .

      Ummmm you do know that both of those games massively flopped right?

      • Orko

        I’m referring to above average critical acclaim and actual game/content quality, not financially.

        ICO – metacritic review average 90 based on 59 reviews
        SotC – metacritic review average 91 based on 77 reviews.

        Hardly “massively flopped” lol….
