Fumito Ueda is one of my favorite people in the industry and runs one of the best teams at Sony, Team ICO. They are working on the upcoming (and excellent looking) title, The Last Guardian.
Fumito Ueda talked on twitter about how he has been a massive SEGA fan since they released the Mark III in Japan. I have actually heard about him being a big SEGA fan and actually being friends with Ryuta Ueda (who worked on Jet Set Radio, Panzer Dragoon series and Yakuza series). They even have the same last name… weird?
Something about Team ICO’s games always reminded me of Panzer Dragoon… I could never put my finger on it.

I can tell it in his games tbh, The Last Guardian game reminds me so much of Panzer Dragoon Saga. The atmosphere in all of his Ico style games have reminded me of the atmosphere of the whole Panzer Dragoon series.
Yeah, It has also been employed by WARP, a legendary studio, where, among other talents, the boss was a certain Kenji Eno, supporter of SEGA in many ways with his company.
Kenji Eno is awesome, its too bad that his comeback a few years ago wasn't what fans expected.
