Another rumor has popped up in regards to "The Last Guardian" being re-announced at E3 2014. According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 14, a friend of Fumito Ueda may have revealed that the video game could be shown off at next month's convention. He stated that he can't wait for "Toriko," which is roughly the Japanese name for the upcoming software product, to appear at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

"The Last Guardian" has been previously rumored to be moved from the PS3 to the PS4 although no announcement has been made by Sony Computer Entertainment in regards to a possible platform switch. At the launch event of the PS4, Shuhei Yoshida stated that the video game is still in development. However, the executive was not willing to comment on which system the software product will be released on.

Moving the development from the current-generation to the next-generation is pretty common. For example, "Ryse: Son of Rome" went from a Xbox 360 game to a Xbox One launch title. Furthermore, the upcoming "Final Fantasy XV" started out life as a PS3 exclusive software product before being moved to the PS4 and Xbox One.

"The Last Guardian" was originally set to come out in late 2011 before it was indefinitely delayed. The aforementioned Fumito Ueda eventually decided to leave the development studio at Team Ico although he is still working on the project at a freelance capacity. A few other executives at Sony Computer Entertainment stated in the past that the company is waiting for the right opportunity to re-debut the project.

A recent rumor suggested the project could be nearing completion as it may be showed off at E3 2014, however. "The Last Guardian" has apparently been re-tooled for the PS4 and could be launching as early as later this year. Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that a press conference will be occurring on June 9 at the convention in Los Angeles.
