Fumito Ueda

Famous for: ICO, Shadow of the Colossus

Follow him on Twitter (if you read Japanese)

Ueda is one of the quiet innovators of game development, with the only two games under his belt (ICO and Shadow of the Colossus) consistently hailed as masterpieces. Despite his recent departure from Sony and Team ICO, we remain confident that his upcoming The Last Guardian will live up to our expectations, and we can't wait to see what he'll be able to tackle next—and what platforms it'll appear on.
