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.”
