Fumito Ueda Hints at Last Guardian TGS Showing

Creator says upcoming announcements will please fans.


The Last Guardian creator Fumito Ueda has given another strong hint that his long awaited PlayStation 3 debut will be making an appearance at the Tokyo Game Show.

In a recent interview conducted at the CESA Developers Conference in Yokohama, Famitsu.com asked Ueda for a comment for players excited over The Last Guardian. Replied Ueda, "I believe we'll soon be able to make some announcements that will please everyone, so please look forward to it."

This certainly sounds like a hint at a Tokyo Game Show showing!

Ueda has been hinting at a TGS showing for the game for months now. In a February Famitsu interview, he said that he was hoping to share more info on the game this year but that Sony had yet to decide upon an E3 or TGS showing. The game missed E3.

More recently, Ueda got himself a Twitter account and wrote "We should be able to show something at Tokyo Game Show, so look forward to it." The only problem is, he didn't specifically mention The Last Guardian here.

The Last Guardian's TGS showing will likely be video-only. Sony announced its playable games lineup earlier this week, and, expectedly, The Last Guardian was not included.

Famitsu's interview was conducted following a CEDEC session where the Ueda and acclaimed animator Yasuo Ootsuka spoke about their respective fields. Visit the Famitsu.com story for images from the event.
