e Last Guardian for PS4 Still Lives and Breathes – December 28, 2015

The Last Guardian, from Japan Studio and Sony Interactive, is the spiritual successor to Fumito Ueda’s Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. In it, you play a young boy who encounters a huge, fantastical creature named Trico, who is wounded. When the boy tries to help, Trico, who is a wild animal, attacks the boy.

But the two go on to form a touching, emotional bond, and the boy learns to communicate with Trico. As they make a harrowing journey through a breathtaking world filled with crumbling ruins and mysterious secrets, they must rely on each other. Trico becomes the boy’s companion and protector.

The Last Guardian features advanced lighting and particle effects, detailed environments, and lifelike character animation in a beautiful fantasy world.

The game can currently be pre-ordered in digital or disc form from Playstation. A Collector’s Edition is also available.

The Last Guardian will be released December 6, 2016.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
