The Last Guardian Sure Sounds Like a PS4 Game

This shouldn't come as a surprise, really. But game creator Fumito Ueda mentioned The Last Guardian in this week's issue of Dengeki PlayStation. And, from the sound of it, the game could be headed to the PS4.

Dengeki PlayStation polled numerous developers about, well, PlayStation. Questions included asking them what their most memorable title on the platform was. Ueda replied, "The Last Guardian, by which I mean all the hardships and the unforeseen amount of time required than what was originally thought."

The Last Guardian was officially announced back in 2009 for the PlayStation 3. It still hasn't yet come out; however, Kotaku saw that game back in 2011 — the same year Ueda abruptly left Sony. Last year, the Tokyo-based game company said The Last Guardian was still in development, but then, it wasn't top priority. This past fall, the game was AWOL at the Tokyo Game Show.

When asked to share his memories from a title he worked on in 2014 or an upcoming title, Ueda responded, "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."

That's not much to go on! And heck, the words PlayStation 4 never were said by Ueda. Do those "new conditions" refer to the PS4? A new platform?

Considering how Sony is trying to bring as many gamers over to the PS4 and how Ueda is still even mentioning the game, it would be a safe bet to say The Last Guardian is now a PS4 game. Or maybe it's a Vita game. Heh.

    I'd be happy with it just being a playable game in general regardless of what platform.

    Let's say it'll be out for next gen, and then it'll be a happy surprise if we do it for this generation.

    I remember this game being advertised when PS3 was about a year off... It's never going to happen it's dead!

    This game reminds me so much of Shadow of the Colossus - Built too early for its time, would have likely been a much easier game to built from the ground up in a PS4 engine but most of their shaders/textures are going to be PS3 quality/era.

    I'm so over giving a fuck about this game, it's been almost six years and hey maybe I'll play it if it's ever free on PS+ but the hype is dying pretty hard for me.

    It's coming to PS4.



    The "Chinese Democracy" of the gaming world.......

      The "Chinese Democracy" of the gaming world is "Duke Nukem Forever" - both were eventually released to mediocre reviews.

    The Last Guardian, aka the primary reason I bought a PS3 all those years ago. Sigh. One day...
