If you have heard your friends talk about the hope they had that The Last Guardian will survive cancellation, this is why. It was highly anticipated years ago because it comes from Team Ico, developers of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
The Last Guardian looks simple, but beautiful. The game doesn’t look that complex. It’s just you as the child and this rat/bird/dog creature, Toriko. It looks like there is little chance of this being a pulse-pounding action game, but Team Ico games aren’t more about adventure and exploration than action. Even in Shadow of the Colossus, your enemies double as giant puzzles to explore. I obviously can’t say that this will be a great game, but Ico and Colossus were well received- and this game has been worked on for at least a half decade. This is all that Team Ico has been working on. I am just elated that the thing is finally coming out. When it’s coming out, exactly, we still don’t know. “2016” is all we have.
