The Last Guardian Is Finally Here

Posted by on Dec 05, 2016

Few creators enjoy so respected a status as Fumito Ueda.

He has served as director on two titles: ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. They are magical adventures, tapping into the wellspring of wonderment that lives in us all. Both forever have a place in PlayStation’s proud history.

When I reintroduced The Last Guardian at E3 2015, I was genuinely moved by the passion of that audience. Few experiences compare to hearing fans rejoice an unexpected light at the end of a very long tunnel.

The Sounds and Music of The Last Guardian

Posted by on Oct 27, 2016

As ardent fans of Fumito Ueda’s past games can attest, the audio component of his projects – both sound and music – play a vital role in immersing the player in a rich fantasy world.

Posted by on Oct 06, 2016

As the actual, highly anticipated release of The Last Guardian finally nears (Yes, it’s a real game and you’re a mere few weeks away from playing it!), we’re hearing more and more from the community about how designer Fumito Ueda’s work has touched them.

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus seem to hold a special place in the hearts of their fans, though the reasons why vary depending on who you talk to.

It’s also a nifty excuse for us to formally release this tribute video that Tokyo Game Show goers saw last month.
