    Getting an update on The Last Guardian at E3 this year seemed like a long shot, and the seemingly troubled Team Ico project was ultimately nowhere to be seen.

    I chatted with the head of PlayStation worldwide development Shuhei Yoshida this afternoon, who remained coy on the game's status.

    "Yeah, yeah," he said. "We have the team working hard, and still it's not the right time to give people an update."

    Team Ico's creative leader, Fumito Ueda, left Sony earlier this year, but is reportedly still working with Sony to finish development on The Last Guardian. There have been no updates since Ueda left, leaving fans worried.

    Yoshida assured me it absolutely was a project Sony intended to release eventually, though.

    "It has to!" he laughed. "It will be."

    Until then, we wait.

    Wouldn't be suprised if they are keeping it back as a launch title for the next gen console.

    You're right, this would be a pretty outstanding send off for the PS3. I don't mind waiting for this game as long as it does come out some day.

    Patrick, could you please contact Nomura and ask him when the fuck Versus XIII is coming out?

    You guys have it easy since The Last Guardian was only announced 3 years ago. I've been waiting for Versus XIII since E3 2006.

    @YukoAsho: That's what I jokingly said to my friend the other day but it seems doable. He clearly wants to push the boundaries visually, it just makes sense. Talk about what would be a killer launch title too if they could make it happen.

    Kind of afraid that this will become this generation's Shenmue: the budget will become unreasonable, they'll finally release it and not be able to make any of their money back, and bad things ensue.

    Is the studio just like 10 dudes and that's why it's taking forever and it's cost effective to take 8 years to make?

    I'm honestly starting to be more excited for TGS than E3 as the years go by. I still really do enjoy Japanese games and thats the place to hope for news.

    Well, at this point it probably is time to just shut up and go dark until the game is done. It smells a bit like the HL2 process did...

    Last I heard Santa Monica was assisting with finishing Last Guardian, but then again they seem to have helped finish nearly every Sony game in the last year.

    There was a time when I had such high hopes and expectations for this game. Now, I have forced myself to be comfortable with the notion that, no matter what, it couldn't possibly live up to the expectations that come with more than half a decade in development hell.

    Versus XIII and KH3 will come out because, dude it's Nomura. He takes his time but his shit comes out (wait, that's...nvm). Last Guardian should come out as well. Sony won't allow it to not come out.

    I'm concerned.

    My concern will graduate to worry if it doesn't show up at TGS. Might even skip worry and go right into mourning.
