The Last Guardian Director Has A Heartfelt Message For The Players

It's a lovely, heartwarming note.

the last guardian

Shadow of the Colossus released in 2006. The Last Guardian has been in development for nine years, and we’ve known of its existence, and been waiting for it, for over half that period. But, much like that other Japanese game that we thought would never release, The Last Guardian is finally going to release in a few days.

To commemorate this occasion, the director of the game, visionary auteur Fumito Ueda, has a note included with the game- a note in which he acknowledges and admits that the game’s development was troubled, but promises that it will be an experience like no other nonetheless.

You can check out the text of the note, courtesy of Eurogamer, below. The Last Guardian launches exclusively for PS4 on December 6.

Dear Adventurers
It’s been a long time coming, but I take great pleasure (and relief!) in knowing that The Last Guardian is in your hands.
When we first began work on The Last Guardian, I intended it to take from and build on our experience working in ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, making it something akin to a greatest hits album. Unfortunately, as you know, we ran into a few twists and turns along the way, and the title took longer than anyone expected. Still, just as ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are truly unique games, so too is The Last Guardian an experience unlike any other.
As you play, take the time to stop and enjoy the scenery as you follow these unlikely companions on their journey. And you definitely won’t want to miss the ending!
The development team and I hope you all have a wonderful time with The Last Guardian. Nothing would make us happier.
Fumito Ueda.
