The Last Guardian Website Opens, Screens And Videos Included
We may not have a release date yet, but at least know we have a place to go and drool over a bunch of media.
It's a little curious that we haven't heard more of Team ICO's The Last Guardian since it was revealed in 2009 but now, we have good news for everyone anxiously anticipating this very promising PlayStation 3 exclusive. The Japanese website has gone live, and it already boasts a bunch of tasty screenshots and two trailers that will leave you breathless. Granted, you've already seen these videos if you've been paying attention to game news over the past year - one is from E3 2009 and the other is from TGS 2009 - but even so, they're definitely worth seeing a few times over. I think what's going to be most intriguing isn't necessarily the platforming and puzzle solving (as unique and engaging as I expect it to be), but the contrast in size between the kid and the creature. That may seem like a trivial surface observation but imagine what can be done with this on an artistic level...a level with which Team ICO is quite familiar. Considering that ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are two of the most respected titles in history, one has to assume that The Last Guardian is headed for eventual immortality as well.
But we still need to see some actual gameplay, and we'll also need a fact sheet that outlines the foundation; i.e., the mechanics and controls. Hopefully, now that the site is up, that info won't be long in coming.
