The Last Guardian Won’t Fly This Year


Spiritual successor to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus on PlayStation 2, The Last Guardian has been delayed from its planned holiday 2011 release on the PlayStation 3.  Additionally, the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection for the PlayStation 3 has also been delayed from its spring 2011 release.


The game’s designer, Fumito Ueda, says that this was done to “provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations.”


New release timeframes haven’t been announced yet, but Ueda says his team is working at a fast pace to get the games out quickly while retaining their quality.
