Ueda: The Last Guardian “business as usual”

Reassuring words from the game's director.

Team Ico boss and The Last Guardian director Fumito Ueda left Sony Computer Entertainment Japan last year, leaving many fans in uncertainty regarding the fate of the oft-delayed project. Kotaku managed to catch up with Ueda, however, who assured fans that development on the game is “business as usual,” and that nothing’s changed aside from his contract.

“It’s been business as usual,” Ueda said with a reassuring smile. “The only things that’ve really changed are the terms of my contract.”

The Last Guardian skipped this year’s E3 due to “technical difficulties.” Sony has said it will ship “when it’s absolutely ready.”

    As Indian girls would say…


    I bet they are just trying to finish it up honestly. Clearly an ambitious game, though I wonder in what way, still too few details on the game. The good thing is that neither Sony or Team ICO are stupid enough to release a game that is half done. That would just ruin the team’s amazing selling value and sales potential for future games. But it’s gotta be done, hope the budget isn’t ballooning by taking so long.

    Still looking forward to it.

    It will be released alongside Final Fantasy Versus XIII, lol.

      @FaithlessMr: Which means it will come out a decade later.

    So he’s still on the project then? That’s good news.

      @Aldridge517: Yep he always was on the project, he basically just quit Sony, but he’s still obligated under new contract to finish the game.

    I’ll keep it simple.
