  • The title is being designed and directed by Fumito Ueda, and is expected to share stylistic, thematic, and gameplay elements with his previous titles, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

    The Last Guardian’s story follows a yet-to-be-named 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.

    Fumito Ueda talks us through what we can expect from The Last Guardian in this behind the scenes video!

    Take a look at the exclusive footage of the Last Guardian gameplay.

    Director Fumito Ueda returns in this interview to discuss exciting new story elements about the PS3 exclusive The Last Guardian, from creators of Shadow Of The Colossus and ICO.

    Key Features of The Last Guardian

    Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Team Ico’s The Last Guardian based on news and announcements made so far.

    The Last Guardian is a third-person perspective game that combines action-adventure and puzzle elements.

    Stealth
    The player controls an unarmed boy who can run, jump, climb and perform other actions similar to the gameplay in Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The player will need to use the environment to silently move around or defeat shadow-being guards, though initially the boy is weaponless. The guards, although slow-moving, can capture the boy, and if the player is unable to free themselves in time, the game will be over.

    Interaction with Trico
    The player’s movements are augmented by interaction with Trico who the boy can climb upon and ride.

    As stated by Ueda, Trico is “driven by animal instincts”, and it is up to the player to guide the creature, “taking advantage of his natural behavior”, in order to complete puzzles. For example, the player may have the boy throw a barrel that gains Trico’s interest, causing it to move to a specific location.

    Unlike typical sidekicks in video games, which immediately react to a player’s command, Trico will be difficult for the player to control, and may take several attempts to coerce the creature into performing a specific action. The player will also have to care for the creature and through the course of the game, the player will gain better command of Trico, much like training a pet.

      “Eagerly anticipating this game” doesn’t even begin to cover it! I mean, Sony just gave Fumito Ueda a blank check to take all the time he needs to make an HD game for the first time, it’s gotta be epic as he’s 2 for 2 FTW already.

      By the way, I don’t care what anyone says, I’m calling The Last Guardian by it’s real name: ICO 3! I think that’s what they intended too, otherwise they wouldn’t have called the griffin in the game Trico AKA Ico Three! :-P

      true that. I’ve never played the previous two, and I strongly recommend myself to (….I don’t know how that works, but it does. :p), but I’ve been vastly interested in this game =O . when exactly is it coming out?
