We’re creeping ever closer to a release for the highly anticipated The Last Guardian, and this new trailer isn’t going to be helping hype levels.
Sony dropped the new trailer for the spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus and Ico and needless to say, people are pretty jacked. Check it out below to find out why.
The trailer shows a boy being chased by some menacing dudes in armour when the game’s weird cat/dog/bird thing, Trico, turns up to kick some ass. Trico saves the lad’s life and presumably they go on to fight crime stopping the Green Goblin and the Joker and the like. I don’t know if that’s the plot, but I must be pretty close to the mark.
If you’ve been following the development cycle of The Last Guardian, you’ll be well aware that it’s been locked in a state of release purgatory for what seems like forever. You can check out a really informative and interesting interview with the game’s Creative Director Fumito Ueda on the struggles to actually get it out after years of waiting.
The Last Guardian is finally being released on December 7 in the UK and December 6 in the US and will be exclusive to PlayStation.
