Here lies some large scale images of The Last Guardian on PS3. I've never seen light and dark depicted this beautifully in within a videogame before, the level of artistry in Fumito Ueda's upcoming PS3 game appears to be on par with the old masters of Chiaroscuro. The Images are below, but first some more details.
Famitsu Magazine has published a interview with director Fumito Ueda, which sheds more light on the project:
- At present, the development staff is still pouring its efforts on the eagle-like creature that serves as the centerpiece of the game. This is because giving the creature a feeling of life and actual existence is of the utmost importance, explained Ueda.
- In addition to the eagle, Ueda asked that players pay attention to the movements of the little boy you control. They've tied the character in greatly to the game's physics engine, allowing for in-depth motion.
- Famitsu asked Ueda if, as with past games, he's working on the story board and such artistic areas of the game himself. The answer is yes. However, the amount of work has decreased compared to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. One of the reasons for this is due to an increase in capable staff who can be left to handle the work to a degree. Additionally, with the advance to PS3 level, there are many areas of expression that can be handled by the hardware. An example of this is the physics engine, which is often mentioned. The physics engine actually ties in well with the game's realistic direction, said Ueda.
- Asked about the game content, he simply said that he can't say too much at present, but that he'd like to share additional information this year. They've yet to decide on whether this information will come at E3 or at the Tokyo Game Show.
- "We're at the stage where we're looking into the time frame. Once the time frame has been decided upon, it won't be long until release. With Last Guardian, we're working intently with the aim of making a game that offers a kind of fun that cannot be experienced elsewhere, so I'd like everyone to wait just a bit more."
