The Last Guardian Makes A Tokyo Game Show Appearance

A new trailer and interview with Fumito Ueda show off more of Team ICO's third mystical adventure.

Tokyo Game Show rolls along, with news and videos trickling steadily out of Japan. Next up, The Last Guardian, my personal number-one-most-anticipated game on the PlayStation 3. 
 
For your edification, Sony offers a brief behind-the-scenes interview with creator Fumito Ueda inside the Team ICO offices. Pretty neat to see what that place looks like. (Surprise! It's... an office building.)

 

  
 
Also, a subdued new trailer.  

 
   
 
This continues to look like pretty much exactly what I'd want it to be. What's your take on it?

Still a little curious why they made the child's skin so much lighter than it was in the original leak.

This as a few other games will probably push me over the edge to get a PS3. Really like the look of this and loved Ico.

Cool, I never caught that interview.
 
I think this looks to be exactly what fans will be expecting from it -  a game rich with natural progression, of certain aspects found in abundance in the first two games. The PS3 will be able to realise those aspects much better.
 
I'm happy, Ueda's words are reason to be confident this game will hit the right spot.

Me too, and not just on the PS3. Can't wait.

In the process of updating the wiki now. There are some gorgeous screens to ogle at.

That creature is going to die at some point in the game and after that I will be dead inside.

The game will be as frustrating as it will be awesome. Awesome because Team ICO is one of the very few companies to get video game narrative right, and frustrating because Team ICO is one of the very few companies to get video game narrative right.

You should be able to pick up Colossus easily enough, but you may struggle with Ico though, it's one of those rare games that people like to hang onto. 
 
I expect a HD collection will turn up at some point after this game, I think the interest this game will draw onto those other two will create good enough incentive for Team Ico.

I really hope they release a Team Ico Collection for the PS3 like the GoW Collection. I would gladly drop $40 to try Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

Awesome. Shadow of the Colossus was quite the epic game and I hope this follows in it's scale of epicness.

I want to play this very badly. I have play Shadow of the Colossus but I have never played ICO. I have never played it for the reason I can not rent it anywhere and it is insanely expensive. I hope Sony will re-release it with shadow on the ps3.

No, it's being made -- and published -- by Sony.

After having taken a look at the images in the wiki, I have come to the conclusion that Ueda's use of light and shadow is really quite masterful.

@Gump: The second video is the one recorded at e3 during the sony press conference, hence the flashes.
 
Then shortly after they released the actual higher-quality video, to be downloaded directly by the press (the first video).

They're still using the Miller's Crossing music.  While it's a great piece from a great film, I'd like to hear what the real music from the game will be, although the music in the last games was always very subdued and only popped up at key moments.
 
The kid being light is probably due to the drab environment, the other games too had the characters contrasty to stand out enough for ease of play. 
 
Try out one of the other games if you're unsure about this one, they all tend to play in a similar fashion, and this series either grabs you instantly or puts you off just as fast.

IMHO I think it needs a few more texture passes.  They don't look much better than ICO, or SotC.  I want the game, but after seeing what a PS3 can do, this game deserves better given the previous games.
