Cynicism and writing about games seems to go hand and hand. That’s why stories like these are a nice respite.
First reported by Eurogamer, Fumito Ueda, the mind behind The Last Guardian penned a heartfelt messages to gamers, which was included in a media kit delivered to outlets by Sony.
It’s been a long time coming, but I take great pleasure (and relief!) in knowing that The Last Guardian is in your hands.
When we first began work on The Last Guardian, I intended it to take from and build on our experience working in ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, making it something akin to a greatest hits album. Unfortunately, as you know, we ran into a few twists and turns along the way, and the title took longer than anyone expected. Still, just as ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are truly unique games, so too is The Last Guardian an experience unlike any other.
As you play, take the time to stop and enjoy the scenery as you follow these unlikely companions on their journey. And you definitely won’t want to miss the ending!
The development team and I hope you all have a wonderful time with The Last Guardian. Nothing would make us happier.
A very nice gesture. To say that this game underwent some turmoil while in development would be an understatement. I’m looking forward to finally getting a chance to give it a play through soon.
