Most gamers will agree that the PS4 has the best exclusive titles of any consoles, and PlayStation fans might be getting another game from creators genDESIGN.
Fumito Ueda, who along with genDESIGN, is credited as the lead designer for The Last Guardian which was released in 2016. genDESIGN consists of members from Ueda’s team who worked on Ico, and Shadow of the Colossus.
Ueda released new artwork for what could be the next title his team is working on, and you can check it out below and on the genDESIGN website.
Fans might see similarities in the artwork to Ueda’s previous games. The girl on the altar gives us flashbacks to Shadow of the Colossus, while the mysterious creature’s paw reminds us of Trico from The Last Guardian. This brings up one question on most gamer’s minds: are the two games connected?
We already know that Shadow of the Colossus is considered a spiritual successor to Ico, with emphasis on the word “spiritual”. Ueda has stated that the two titles take place within the same world and consists the same gameplay mechanics, but neither impacts the story of either game. Whether or not this new title will build upon the plots of Shadow of the Colossus and/or The Last Guardian is a toss-up, but our bets are on the game taking place within a similar world with the same lore.
