The Playstation 2013 event has come and gone, revealing all new games, technology and more. However, one burning questions is still sitting in many Playstation fans minds. Where the heck is The Last Guardian? Recent rumors have placed the game as a PS4 launch title, but aside from that, we’ve seen and heard nothing since the reveal back in 2009.
For those of you who may not know what the Last Guardian is here’s a short and sweet explanation. A game by the fabled Fumito Ueda, the story follows a young boy and his Guardian, Trico, on an third-person action adventure title similar to the likes of ICO and Shadow of the Colusssus. Through out the game you will learn to care for the creature Trico and protect him from enemies. Removing arrows, feeding the creature, which in turn gives you more command over the creature later on in the game. Following a release date announcement at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show, the game was then pushed back into 2012. In 2012 it was delayed again, and since then we haven’t gotten a peep about the game.
Tonight of all nights would have been perfect for Sony to get fans excited by announcing The Last Guardian was moved to the PS4, but they passed it up. That’s not to say that we were disappointed by anything Sony showed off tonight. Killzone: Shadow Fall, Infamous: Second Son, Drive Club and Knack all looked great, and shows that they will continue their strong exclusive line-up into the next-generation. And with Sony’s new marketing team at the helm, hopefully increased sales on these exclusives will follow suit.
However, exclusives like Agent and The Last Guardian are still sitting on the sidelines, and fans are eagerly awaiting to hear even the slightest update on either game. So when will we finally see The Last Guardian again? It’s hard to say, but if today’s show is any indication of how big E3 2013 will be, I would highly doubt that we wouldn’t get a glimpse of the game around that time. Or, we could totally be wrong and the game may have been cancelled under all of our noses. What do you think Sony fans, did tonight put a downer on your hopes for the game, or do you expect to see it at E3?
