It’s been nearly 10 years since development started on The Last Guardian, designer Fumito Ueda’s long-anticipated follow-up to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. I caught up with Ueda at E3 to talk about his lengthy journey.
You might know Fumito Ueda for his two excellent and massively popular adventure games, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. He is currently busy (and has been busy for a long, long, long time) working on a spiritual successor, The Last Guardian. But what comes after that? Zombies, apparently.
The Last Guardian IS in production. Though the game was absent from this year's E3, that's what we've been repeatedly assured of by Sony reps. Well, front man Fumito Ueda, creator of PS2 classics ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, stepped out from behind the curtain to reiterate that fact, but with a little caveat.
The Last Guardian, from the same team that brought us Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, has sadly been MIA for months now following repeated delays and the departure from Sony of some of its key developers.
The question whether video games are art has been bothering gamers, journalists and critics alike for a long while. Proponents might say that art is subjective, that anything capable of eliciting a deep emotional response could be considered art.

Noticeably absent from Sony's press event yesterday was The Last Guardian. The game was first announced in 2009. Since then, fans have been waiting for the finished title to emerge. It hasn't.
There was one glaring omission today. There was one glaring omission last fall at the Tokyo Game Show. It was the same glaring omission.
The Last Guardian is the the PlayStation 3 game that the people who most want PlayStation 3 games want.
Customers of the world's largest dedicated video game retailer were shocked today when an automated phone call went out declaring the cancellation of Team Ico's eagerly-anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Guardian. Say it isn't so, Sony! Update: GameStop apologizes for the mistake.
Fumito Ueda, the driving force behind both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, has confirmed that he is no longer employed at Sony.
Is Yoshifusa Hayama the latest Last Guardian casualty? The former Sony Computer Entertainment Vice President and Last Guardian executive producer has left the company.
Forget the woeful American cover for a minute, and instead let's focus on the Japanese and European box art for PS2 classic Ico. It's as memorable for many as the game itself, with its bold art style and rich colours.
We really should be getting used to its absence by now, but confirmation that Team ICO's next big action adventure game, The Last Guardian, won't be making an appearance at next week's Tokyo Game Show is still a giant bird-cat-thing-sized bummer.
There is "Bonus Content" in the new September 27-dated PlayStation 3 prettier versions of PlayStation 2 classics Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Yay! It mostly involves dynamic PS3 themes and videos. Oh. Some of the video is about the games' spiritual sequel, the long-awaited The Last Guardian. Hopes raised, by the…
Neither Ico nor Shadow of the Colossus are new per se. But both games are getting HD versions with 3D. The HD versions sparkle and so do these trailers.
