The Last Guardian
- Release Oct 25, 2016
The Last Guardian is an upcoming video game developed by genDESIGN and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4. The game is designed and directed by Fumito Ueda, and is expected to share stylistic, thematic, and gameplay elements with his previous games, Ico (2001) and Shadow of the Colossus (2005).
The player controls a young boy who befriends a giant half-bird-half-mammal creature, Trico, and the two work together to evade guards that are after them both. The player must manipulate Trico as they would a real animal, such as luring it with food, to use it to reach high platforms or other remote places, while evading enemies.
