Fans of Fumito Ueda games, including us, were stunned when we found out that he had resigned from his position at Japan Studio. The much-anticipated The Last Guardian entered a black hole where no-one at Sony could shed some credible light on the matter – that being if we’ll see it launch in the near future. In an interview at Gamescom with Sony Worldwide Studios chief, Shuhei Yoshida, Eurogamer asked him for an update on the title. This is what he had to say:
The team is still working on it very hard. There are certain technical issues they’ve been working on. That’s the period of time when the game, looking from the outside, doesn’t seem to be making much progress. But internally there is a lot of work going into creating the title.
We had the game playable. At one point we felt that it would be produced for a certain time period. That was the time we prematurely talked about the launch window. But it turned out the technical issues are much harder to solve. So the engineering team had to go back and re-do some of the work they had done.”
We’re holding fingers crossed that it makes some kind of showing at Tokyo Games Show later this year where we expect Nintendo to also unveil exact details on the Wii U launch.
