If last week’s quote from the head of PlayStation software development, Scott Rhode, wasn’t enough to put your mind at ease with regard to highly anticipated and in-no-way-canned Sony title, The Last Guardian, here’s another. This time it’s from the beautiful mind that brought us Ico, Shadow of the Colossus and is helping to (eventually) bring us The Last Guardian, the man himself, Fumito Ueda, who told Kotaku that work is indeed coming along on the title, “It’s been business as usual,” he said. “The only things that’ve really changed are the terms of my contract.”
So, there you have it. What more could you possibly want? Oh, you want the actual game? Oh. Right.

Deadline’s reporting that Chronicle director Josh Trank has signed on to direct the Shadow of the Colossus film from Sony Pictures, after requesting the position. The report states writers are currently being interviewed. Trank, is apparently a very busy man: he’s supposedly discussing developing Fantastic Four for Fox and Spider-Man spinoff Venom for Sony Pictures, and is also reported to be working with Warner Bros on an adaptation of Red Star, so who knows how long it will be before SotC is released. A movie based on the Team ICO masterpiece has been in the pipeline Joystiq.

Siliconera has posted a translation of part of the official guide to Shadow of the Colossus, previously available in Japanese only. Members of Team Ico discuss designing the game’s titular enemies, fitting the world together around them, nailing down the game’s distinctive aesthetic, and more. It’s well worth a read if you’re keen on Team Ico’s output; the studio’s third release, The Last Guardian, still has no release date.

I couldn’t think of anything witty to say on this shorts post, and because of this, there isn’t an esoteric shot to go along with it. That’s okay, my gorgeous dog will suffice.

Sadly, the news can’t all be about Portal 2 releasing early and Bethesda’s Skyrim. No, some days the news is bad.
