The DICE summit in Las Vegas is a good opportunity to stroll up to someone like Sony Worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida and ask a burning question or two, and we're thankful 1UP was there to ask ours. It relates, of course, to The Last Guardian, which looks more like vaporware every year we see and hear nothing about it.
Yoshida assures that it's still very much happening, but that progress is slow. "It's still a really important project and a vision we want to see realized," he said, "and Fumito's vision is really causing a very difficult challenge for the developers, so there's some scrapping and rebuilding -- iteration in the process. That's why [it's taking so long]."
Speaking of Fumito Ueda, former Team Ico head and creator of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian, Yoshida mentioned that he's still very involved with the project. According to him, rumors of Ueda leaving Sony were slightly exaggerated, and the reality is more akin to a "contractual rearrangement". Sony would like to continue working with himâ€”if TLG is successful, that is.
Is it still on your radar? Do you think we'll hear anything at E3 this year? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
