The Last Guardian Delayed

Sony and Team Ico have chosen to delay both the upcoming PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian and the HD re-release of the Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection which had been scheduled for holiday/spring 2011 releases respectively.

The official PlayStation Blog spoke to the director of both games, Fumito Ued, who confirmed the delay: “I announced at last year’s Tokyo Game Show that the release timing of The Last Guardian which is currently being developed would be holiday 2011. However, to provide more challenging and better quality of content to users and to fulfill First Party Studio’s obligations, I decided to postpone its release timing.”

The Last Guardian is a third-person action/adventure/puzzle game that will be similar in style and gameplay to the developers’ two previous games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The game centres around the friendship of a boy and a large bird like creature. Both of Team Ico’s previous games were highly praised for their originality and unique gameplay, and this delay will come as a blow to all those who have been eagerly anticipating The Last Guardian. No information has yet been given about the new release dates for the two titles, other than sometime in 2012.
