Video game site IGN has uploaded three new videos discussing the development of and player reaction to upcoming video game The Last Guardian.
IGN has uploaded three new videos on upcoming game The Last Guardian as part of its "IGN First" series.
Two of the videos feature Fumito Ueda, the creative director of The Last Guardian. In the videos, Ueda discusses the game's long development process--it's been in the works since 2007--and the creation of the creature Trico, one of the protagonists of the game. The third video features IGN's Tristan Ogilvie and Cam Shea as they discuss their impressions after playing the first 45 minutes of the game.
The Last Guardian will follow the adventures of an unnamed male protagonist and Trico, who meet after the protagonist is kidnapped under mysterious circumstances and relocated to a setting resembling the ruins of a large castle. The game will combine action-adventure and puzzle elements as it focuses on the growing relationship between the protagonist and Trico.
The Last Guardian was first announced at E3 2009. The game underwent numerous developmental delays due to the departure of Ueda from Sony, the game's publisher, and the limitations of the PlayStation 3 hardware. After years of speculation on the state of development, the game was reintroduced at the beginning of Sony's E3 2015 conference. It is due to be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 later this year.
