The Last Guardian News and Release Date May Be Coming Soon According to Weekly Famitsu

As we already mentioned yesterday the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu just published a sizable article titled “The Truth on 2014′s Rumors,” and the feature actually includes an interesting snippet about The Last Guardian.

Famitsu’s editors pinged Sony Computer Entertainment on whether the game will ever be released, and they learned, as we already knew, that the publisher is looking for the best chance to announce the title again. In addition to that Sony also specified that if development continues as planned new information and a release date could be coming soon.

Of course “soon” in The Last Guarian terms may be in 2024… but Famitsu judges the information believable, so maybe there’s hope.

That said, the same article also judged the rumor of a new Demon’s Souls in development at Sony not believable just because Sony told them that they have nothing to announce on the topic, which is the standard “no comment” reply Sony always gives.

Just to give an example about that kind of reply, it’s exactly the same reply given about the now confirmed PS4 version of The Last of Us, a few weeks ago. Does it ring a bell?

Maybe Famitsu should take that kind of comment a little less seriously.

  • Thanks for the news. Excuse me, I totally lost faith in this project. I mean, seriously, back when it was announced I couldn’t even grow a beard. And now I have grey hair. No kidding. I moved on, I had to.

    • alok

      Try not to say this type of stuff when the game is re-revealed,cause you’ll get butchered in that argument.

    • Boerewors

      So now you’ve got the chance to play this game in style, which is bearded of course! You should thank them for waiting for your facial hair to catch up!
      But on a more serious note (not to say beards are not classy), I simply don’t believe they should put this game out, whether it’s finished or not. Better let it stay a legend, a myth of grand proportions, than the game that couldn’t live up to its expectations.
      After replaying Shenmue is actually feel the same about more of these games; they can never become as epic as we would like them to be.

      • Jecht_Sin

        Huh? Excuse me. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are totally Epic.

        The only thing is that SotC makes me sad each time I kill a colossus. Those nice, poor, lonely beasts. 🙁

        • Boerewors

          They are, and because of that you expect nothing less from the Last Guardian. I simply don’t believe that The Last Guardian can live up to the expectation after so long, I believe that’s also part of the problem and why it hasn’t come out yet.

  • Fansub

    No,just no 🙁 .

  • 2223

    I hope a new Demon’s Souls is in development and will be revealed at E3 or TGS.

    • JustGaming

      Me too, or at least a spin-off. Isn’t Miyazaki supposedly working with Sony on something? It would make ultimate sense.
      As for TLG, I genuinely hope it has been brought over to PS4. PS3, while it still has plenty of life left in it, has had a suitable enough swan song in the form of TLoU.

    • Michael Balchunas

      The Dark/Demon souls team said it definetly was not going to be made. Not sure if they are saying that to surprise us or not but thats what they said.

  • Vash the Stamped

    • ISISSecretAgent

  • Emir Gacevic

    Bought the ps3 afteR watching the first trailer of this game 🙂

  • truthtellerdealwithit

    Aslong as its coming to PS4 instead.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Hey! Why not both?! Actually.. all at this point. It could be ported to PS VIta as well! With cross buy, sure. 🙂

      • truthtellerdealwithit

        Or both! Just aslong as it comes to ps4 aswell 😛

    • bearmon2010

      No. I hope for both PS3 and PS4.

  • RealityCheck2013

    I gave up thinking about this game ages ago 😀 But would still LOVE this to be true!!! 😛 + for PS4 PLEASE 😉

  • megablast16

    Thought it was about time for another Last Guardian announcement imminent story, after all it has been a while. I’d love it to happen but the fact Team Ico hasn’t released anything since Colossus, and nothing at all during the PS3’s long lifespan, doesn’t fill me with optimism.

    • Michael Balchunas

      Doesnt ICO come after Collossus?

      • megablast16

        No Ico was first, released in 2001 I think, then Colossus in 2005.

        • Michael Balchunas

          I see I see. I tried playing ICO when I was like 10-12 years old and just couldnt get into it. I bought it again though about a year ago along with Colossus on the same disc. I went back and beat Colossus but still havent gave ICO another go.

  • Daniele Musto

    Instead, i think that when and if this games coming out, it will for sure captivate all of us that loved his previous games…it’s all in his way of expressing his art and talent….and why should it be less good this time?

  • Craig Sloan

    “Of course “soon” in The Last Guarian terms may be in 2024” I laughed too hard.

  • Kiyoshi

    Every other game that has this much hype and build up has failed catastrophically. But this time I’m not worried, I have a feeling that when it does release, Sony will bring the game everyone expected and more.

    • Mike Joestar

      L.A. Noire wasn’t half bad actually and you’re right, Fumito Ueda made Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, nuff said.

      • Kiyoshi


  • Steven Solidarios

    Soon as in like 3 months? Or soon as in 6 years?

  • Gootube Suck Ass

    Fap Fap Fap Fap Fap Fap Fap!

  • Blitz

    Damn you, I had forgotten all about Last Guardian. Now the pain is back.

    • Dennis Djoenz

      The pain is back indeed.
