The news just keeps hitting from the E3 conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Stuck in development for nearly eight years, it has finally been officially announced that “The Last Guardian” will debut in 2016 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
Take a look at the gameplay trailer…
For those unfamiliar, or have simply forgot given the title’s hold-up in production, here is the plot of this epic third-person, puzzle-solving game:
The Last Guardian ’s story follows that of a boy who is trying to escape from a setting resembling the ruins of a large expansive castle. The game will revolve around the developing friendship between the boy and a giant, feathered creature, resembling a griffin, named Trico. Trico has spears and arrows stuck in its back, and is initially bound by a chain. Later, it is freed and is shown attacking an armored soldier. Screenshots, along with the E3 trailer, show the boy attempting to sneak past and attack other soldiers.
