The Last Guardian

Developed by Team Ico

Published by Sony Computer Entertainment

Directed by Fumito Ueda

Produced by Yasutaka Asakura



The Last Guardian (previously referred to by its working title, Project Trico), is an upcoming video game developed by Team Ico, and published and distributed by Sony Computer Entertainment. So far, it is unclear whether The Last Guardian will be a spiritual successor to Team Ico's previous two game titles, Ico, and Shadow of the Colossus, however, all three are expected to share similar stylistic, thematic, and gameplay elements.


The plot revolves around a young boy who befriends a giant bird, dog-like hybrid creature, named Trico, as the two team together to evade and defeat guards that are hunting for the both of them. The game will require the player, who is in direct control of the boy, to manipulate Trico like a real-life animal, such as by luring it around with food, and using the creature as a means to climb and reach high platforms, or remote places. This sets the core of the game as an action-adventure, with an emphasis on puzzle-based platforming, all the while slipping past guards who the player may encounter on their journey.


In development since 2007, and being formally announced at E3 2009, with a scheduled release in 2011, The Last Guardian has suffered from numerous delays, due to several difficulties such as hardware, personal, and internal issues, between the consoles, and the developers. However, the game was re-introduced at E3 2015, and is now aimed for a 2016 release, as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.




Release date: 2016

Platform: PlayStation 4

Genres: Action-adventure, Puzzle-platformer


Artwork: DualSHOCKERS 2015

Screenshots: GamesRadar+ 2009, IGN 2015

Anybody else excited for this?! Any Team Ico fans out there?

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are two of my favorite games, both even used as examples of art in video games. They're amazing as they can convey such a deep and personal story, but in such a simplistic way.

Thoughts on The Last Guardian, especially w/ all the setbacks and delays?
