The Last Guardian Gets Release Date

At Sony’s E3 press conference, The Last Guardian was finally given a release date of October 25! The game will be available on Playstation 4.

The Last Guardians story follows that of a boy who is trying to escape from a setting resembling the ruins of a large expansive castle. The boy has been kidnapped “under mysterious circumstances”, according to Ueda, and comes to discover a giant, feathered creature named Trico. The game will revolve around the developing friendship between the boy and Trico. The name of the creature can be taken to mean “prisoner,” “baby bird”, or aportmanteau of “bird” and “cat.”  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. Trico will at first be hostile toward the boy, but during the course of the game, the two will develop an emotional attachment to each other. Ueda suggested there may be similar creatures like Trico in the game, but could not confirm this.

The Last Guardian, known in Japan as Hitokui no Ōwashi Trico and previously referred to by the working title Project Trico, is an upcoming video game developed by genDESIGN and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment
