E3 2015: “The Last Guardian” Is Still Alive And Heart-Tugging

In development since 2007, publicly announced in 2009, The Last Guardian subsequently disappeared from sight and all sorts of rumors began to circulate about its demise. Thankfully those rumors have proved to be greatly exaggerated and the game from legendary studio Team Ico (Ico, Shadow of the Colossus) has made its grand reappearance at this year’s E3. Centering around a boy and his magical dog/bird/cat/dragon pet creature, the pair have to navigate and escape a decaying fortress while learning to trust each other. It may sound like a fantasy version of Old Yeller but with Team Ico guiding it, this game could define storytelling for the current generation. Look for it to finally arrive sometime in 2016.
