Apparently, against all odds and popular thought, Team Ico’s The Last Guardian is still alive, well, and coming to PlayStation 3. At least, that’s according to a Sony developer, preferring to remain anonymous, speaking to Kotaku from the Tokyo Game Show this week.
It’s not exactly comforting vernacular, though, as the unnamed individual could only really confirm that they are “working on it” and that, slightly amusingly, he added that “I give you my word that it exists” – which is nice.
It’s still being developed in Japan, for the current console generation, and is a “very ambitious project” with “lots of pieces of the puzzle. It’s a matter of getting them to fit together.”
The Last Guardian was first revealed some years ago after an early concept video was leaked onto the internet. Since then, bad news has surrounded the project.
