This week’s Famitsu has come with a small preview on Team ICO’s upcoming The Last Guardian for PlayStation 3.
The game will use gameplay elements similar to those of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus; that means jumping, climbing, grabbing, etc. While going about gameplay, the team is trying to make Torico’s movements look smooth and the levels natural. They want Torico to look like he’s real and alive — one of the team’s biggest focuses.
Apparently, when the game was announced back at E3 2009, the game’s director, Fumito Ueda, didn’t think the West would receive it as well as they did. He and his team were shocked, but are overall happy, about the reaction but are now feeling more pressure than ever on the game.
The Last Guardian will be a game different from others, that’s for sure, but fun nonetheless. The magazine says that more information could come out of any point during the year, including E3 or the Tokyo Game Show, but they have yet to decide.
