Sony Japan Studio Head on The Last Guardian: “I Think it’s Moving Along in the Right Direction”
Well, the game is in development, and it’s well staffed, and Ueda-san is here [at Sony Studios Japan], working – even though he’s not a Sony employee, he’s dedicated to the product. But we’re not ready to update yet.
During a recent visit to Japan, Kotaku asked Allan Becker, Head of Japan Studio, if the more structured environment at Japan Studio would help Fumito Ueda and The Last Guardian:
We’re real-time in that process. And we don’t necessarily agree with each other – Fumito Ueda and I – about process. In some sense, I sort of… implemented change, which, I think, is causing some concern and consternation. But, once again, I think the benefit will come through. We’re still going through that phase of adjustment and finding the right balance and groove.
I think it’s moving along in the right direction.
With the PlayStation 4 right around the corner, do you think The Last Guardian is now being made solely for the new console? Let us know in the comments below.
