The Last Guardian Gameplay Shown

The Last Guardian is still alive, against all odds. Sony opened up their press conference with footage from The Last Guardian, Team Ico’s latest project, a game that was supposed to be out in 2010 but was seemingly stuck in development hell for the past five years, with Sony and Ico simply reassuring us that it still existed without actually giving any proof.

The game play shows the dynamics and platforming between the child and the beast, and highlights some of the puzzle solving that will be in the core game. It shows the kid crossing gaps with the monster’s aid, and climbing on the monster to avoid a certain death. It goes further from there to show a platforming puzzle to escape crumbling ruins.

A strong opener from Sony, and certainly a surprise from anyone who’s been saying the game no longer exists. The Last Guardian will be releasing for PS4 in 2016.
