The last big release for the PlayStation 4 is only weeks away, and in the run up to the release date, Sony have released a 35 minute gameplay clip of The Last Guardian for all to see. Follow the story told by an old man, as he recounts his youth when he encounters a giant beast who he befriends.
The Last Guardian is one of those titles that spent most of its time in development hell, due for release on the PlayStation 3 but it just never surfaced. At E3 2015, it was announced for a PS4 release, and while due in October this year, it was pushed back again until early December.
The game has been developed by genDESIGN, which is composed of several former Team Ico members responsible for the hits Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The gameplay trailer recently released shows a lot of gameplay including some puzzle and platforming sequences.
It looks rather interesting, and will surely tell a good story about a bond between the child and the creature, but I have to say, it looks like the camera and controlling the boy looks like it might be somewhat frustrating.
We’ll know for sure when The Last Guardian releases beginning December 6th on PlayStation 4.
