Nearly four years after being announced for PS3, and after scrapped release date after scrapped release date, Team Ico’s newest title shows signs that it might have a appear during the Electronic Entertainment Expo. An observant NeoGAF poster happened across a posting for the game while looking through the pre-show information on E3 Insider. While no direct details are revealed in the posting, it is implied that there will be new screenshots and videos available on June 11th.
The Last Guardian was officially unveiled at E3 in 2009. Since then, it has been scheduled to release in 2011 and 2012, before disappearing almost entirely. Rumors circulated for a while that the project was dead after the departure of the game’s director and Ico creator Fumito Ueda, despite the fact that Sony had contracted him to complete The Last Guardian. The last anyone heard of the title was shortly after the PlayStation 4 reveal from Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, who stated that, “We are waiting for the right time to re-introduce [the game.]”
This could mean that The Last Guardian is going to be a launch title for the PS4, or might be the final swan song of the PS3. Either way, it looks like we might finally hear more about this elusive title come E3 in a little over a week.
What do you guys think? Are we going to hear all about the game? Nothing? Will it be for the PS4, PS3, or both?
