The long-awaited PS4 exclusive The Last Guardian has been pushed back to December 6th. The game was originally scheduled for October 25th, but apparently has more bugs than anticipated. "To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game's creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues," President of Sony's Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida told fans through a blog post.

The Last Guardian is the latest adventure game by Fumito Ueda, the visionary behind Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. It's been in development for a decade at Ueda's genDESIGN studio, famously all-but disappearing for several years, before re-emerging at E3 2015. In it, you play a young boy who befriends a giant "Guardian" called Trico, and set off on a journey together.

When we played The Last Guardian at E3, we suggested it was "an incomplete opus." During a 45-minute play session, we encountered some severe camera problems, graphical glitches, collision issues and a physics bug that propelled the protagonist 20 feet into the air. Hopefully the extra six weeks is enough time for Ueda and the rest of his team to get the game up to standards.
