So is this it for The Last Guardian? Or do we still have hope that this is just rumors and speculation?
Sad news for those ICO and Shadow of the Colossus fans looking forward to playing The Last Guardian, it looks as though the project MAY have been cancelled, according to an article on playstationlifestyle.net.
News over on Trademarkia listed the Team Ico title as “ABANDONED – NO STATEMENT OF USE FILED” as of Monday, August 6th.
The game has had a rough development cycle, being under development for a number of years now and more recently, we were informed that the game was still experiencing “technical difficulties”, according to Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida in an article on Eurogamer.
However, PSLS, the site who found the initial trademark file, has since been in contact with Sony, who stated that “they don’t comment on rumor or speculation.”
We will continue to follow this story as it develops, and will let you know if anything changes (as we’re hoping things do) for this long-time in-development project.
Play.com, an online retailer, has leaked four massive titles to be released for the PlayStation Vita, including Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Nights, Monster Hunter Portable 3, Tales of Innocence R, and Final Fantasy Type-O HD.
Eurogamer reader el_pollo_diablo sent the image to the site. According to Eurogamer, these games may be linked to the upcoming PS Vita Heaven event, to be held on March 9th.
The leaked image above was seen by reader, "el_pollo_diablo", who sent the photo to Eurogamer.
So what can be said about these games? Are any of them confirmed? As of now, only Monster Hunter Portable 3 is listed for a pre-order price of £39.99. The other games have since been taken down, but the image on the right is still available on Eurogamer’s site in their news piece.
We’ll have to wait and see on March 9th’s Heaven event to see about the confirmation about the other three games.
