If the title The Last Guardian means anything to you, chances are you really, really want to know what the story with it is. Team Ico and Fumito Ueda's first new game since 2005's Shadow of the Colossus has PlayStation 3 owners all sorts of excited, even after the news earlier this month that there's been "some scrapping and rebuilding" on the project.
Now Sony's Shuhei Yoshida, head of the company's worldwide game development studios, has an update on how things are coming along, by way of a new interview with Wired. Yoshida says that progress is being made, even going as far as revealing that the game is "playable, but not to the point that we can talk about the timing of launch."
Yoshida also confirms that Sony's other first-party developers are lending a hand on the project. Sony Santa Monica is specifically named, but Yoshida nods to the company's "central tech group in the U.S. and the U.K." that is "giving [Team Ico] whatever help they need."
The lengthy interview covers a lot of other ground too, including when we might start seeing things like the PlayStation Suite and PSone games up and running on the just-released PlayStation Vita. Definitely worth the read.
