Tum­ble brag

EDGE - - HYPE -

In The Last Guardian, Ueda and his team want to build on the pow­er­ful sense of height present in Ico and Shadow Of The

Colos­sus. To that end, they took time out to visit a num­ber of ver­tigo-in­duc­ing lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing mak­ing their way to the top of sky­scrapers, in or­der to bet­ter un­der­stand the mix of awe and fear that stand­ing on the edge of size­able plum­met in­vokes. But there’s greater con­trast here as cling­ing on to Trico, Ueda says, goes some way to in­su­lat­ing you from that fear, as the crea­ture con­fi­dently (for the most part, at least) ne­go­ti­ates the ver­tig­i­nous struc­tures of this en­tic­ing world.
