Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but there’s a rumor going around that this will be the year The Last Guardian is shown at E3. No, seriously.

Development on Team Ico’s follow-up to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus started in 2007, and the game even got a showing at E3 2009. But since then, The Last Guardian has wallowed in development hell, with no word except the occasional rumors of its cancellation and assurances that it’s still being worked on.

However, the UK newspaper The Guardian has mysteriously included The Last Guardian in their 15 Most Anticipated Games of E3 article, saying that they “have it on very good authority” that this is the year we’ll see something. Maybe someone at the paper does have an inside source and we’ll finally get a glimpse of the game after 6 years.

It should be noted, however, that The Guardian‘s list also includes The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, which Nintendo confirmed won’t be shown after it’s release was delayed until 2016, so take this rumor with however many grains of sodium chloride you need. After all, if people keep predicting that “this is the year”, eventually they’ll be right.

What do you think? Is this the year? If so, how different will the game look from what we saw in 2009?

    Hearing IGN is showing a new Platinum game has me excited. Thinking it might be from Hashimoto for Wii U because he tweeted a mention of the Digital Event has me excited.

    Retro tweeting a link to Nintendo’s E3 page has me excited.

    If I see this game it will get me excited. But until I see it I will not get excited, nor, quite frankly, will I believe it.

    I have absolutely no expectations that this will be shown.

    However, I would actually be willing to bet money they’d do an ICO/Shadow of the Colossus HD collection for the PS4, because making “even more HD” remakes of games that already got HD remakes is a thing nowadays.
