With the release of The Last Guardian getting near and near fans are getting excited and can’t wait to get their hands on the game. Since the release date has been announced for The Last Guardian, Fumito Ueda has been quite vocal about the game, its development, and his ambitions behind it.

Speaking with the Guardian, Ueda said that he is not likely to play The Last Guardian for almost a year after it is released. He explained the reason behind this decision is that, he will only see the flaws in his game.

With all my titles – when the game is released, I’m extremely nervous. In the week after the release I don’t want to look at the game. All I’ll see are the flaws. I wouldn’t want to see it with that perspective because I don’t want to think about regrets. Even seeing tiny bugs I’ll think, why didn’t we squash that one?But sometime later, maybe after a year, I’ll be able to calm down and take a look.

Recently, Ueda said that sticking to the original idea of The Last Guardian was a struggle for the team, but nothing in that idea has changed in nine years.

He said through these nine years he had to remind himself of what kind of game he set out to make, what was game’s personality going to be.

In a recent video interview Fumito Ueda revealed that, the team held a competition to hire a music composer for The Last Guardian. In the competition the team gave the composers the keywords and the screenshots to compose music for, and Tekeshi Furukawa’s music matched Ueda’s vision.

The Last Guardian Collector’s Edition is also available for pre-order for $199.99. The Collector’s Edition consists of a large wooden crate, a premium steel book containing the game disc and more.

The Last Guardian is being developed by Team ICO, and is scheduled to release on October 25 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
