The Last Guardian Sure Sounds Like A PS4 Game

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.
