The Last Guardian’s CG Trailer Shows How Useful Trico’s Tail Is

With each passing day, The Last Guardian's pending release becomes even more real. Today, Sony dropped a CG trailer for The Last Guardian along with a short Q&A session with series creator Fumito Ueda.

While the trailer shows aspects we've seen before in demos, this CG trailer filters the gameplay through a more cinematic lens.

Fumito Ueda also answered a few questions regarding the game and was fairly transparent. Most notably, he was honest about the executing on the vision of the game, but still feels confident in the final product.

“I’m going to be little hard on myself here… but to say I’ve done everything 100% is not completely true," he says. "As a creator, there’s always a little more you feel you could have done. When I finished Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, I felt exactly the same way. Having said that, I think the staff from Sony and Gendesign has put everything, every ounce of energy we had, and poured it into the project.”

Ueda goes on to discuss his thoughts on the comparisons to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, the expansion of video games, his inspirations, and more in the Q&A Sony conducted on the PlayStation Blog.

The Last Guardian comes out on December 6 on PS4.

Super Mario Maker 3DS Overview Video Shows Off Just How Close It Is To The Wii U Version

Nintendo released a new overview video today that shows off many of the 3DS version of Super Mario Maker's mechanics.

Unsurprisingly, the 3DS version is very close to the Wii U version, though there are some shortcomings, like its limited online interactivity. The act of making levels, however, appears to be mostly identical to the Wii U version of the game, which is good news for all the Mario creators out there.

Super Mario Maker 3DS releases for its new platform on December 2.

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue’s Opening Cinematic Shows Us Mickey Mouse, Friendship, And Keyblades

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is attempting to bridge some of the gaps, as shown in the opening cinematic of Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep–A Fragmentary Passage.

It follows Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep protagonist Aqua and her stay in the Realm of Darkness. This cinematic shows her journey, albeit in a way that isn't the most apparent for people not immediately familiar to the franchise's complicated lore. Still, there's Mickey Mouse, Sora's hand, and a great remix of Simple and Clean, the series' iconic song.

Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue comes out on January 24 on PS4. This collection contains a remastered version of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance; Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, a purely cinematic story set around the Foretellers; and Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep–A Fragmentary Passage, a new story that takes place after Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.

Latest Look At Yakuza 0 Shows Goro Majima’s Dramatic Rise

Sega has released a new trailer for Yakuza 0, which shows how the series' Goro Majima loses an eye and gains his reputation as the Shimano family's so-called Mad Dog.

The clip shows Majima at the Grand Cabaret, where he is tasked with clearing his disgraced name while earning money for the Tojo Clan. As it turns out, Majima is pretty good at keeping the cash flowing into the nightclub. That goes against the spirit of the job, which is meant as punishment, so his boss decides to raise the stakes.

Yakuza 0 is set for a January 24 release on PlayStation 4. For more on the game, take a look at our earlier preview, which focuses on the game's setting – Japan at the height of the decadent 1980s.
