The Last Guardian creator Fumito Ueda has said that players “definitely won’t want to miss” the game’s ending.

In a letter sent to reviewers ahead of the game’s release next week, Ueda described The Last Guardian as an “experience unlike any other”, and explained that he was relieved to finally get the game in players’ hands.

“When we first began work on The Last Guardian, I intended it to take from and build on our experience working on ICO and Shadow of the Colossus,” he explained, “making it something akin to a greatest hits album. Unfortunately, as you know, we ran into a few twists and turns along the way, and the title took longer than expected.

“Still, just as ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are truly unique games, so too is The Last Guardian an experience unlike any other.”

The Last Guardian has been in development for 9 years. The ending is going to make me cry, isn’t it?
