When Last Guardian was first revealed in 2009, Team Ico fans couldn’t wait to see more. Unfortunately for them and gamers all around, it wasn’t until E3 2015 that we saw any bits of the title again. Now, after all this time, it hasn’t been shown at the Tokyo Game Show in September or Paris Games Week this October. There is, however, a good reason for this.
In an interview with Gamespot, PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida explained that Last Guardian is a very story-driven game and does not want to reveal too much. He goes on to say, “We wanted to show that it exists, it works, it runs. It’s not like we won’t show anything before launch, but I think we will try to limit what we show about the game.”
It is good to see someone looking out for the player experience when it comes to how much is shown about a game before its release. You can see the E3 2015 footage for Last Guardian here.
