Teased since 2009, The Last Guardian was for a time assumed lost, but it wasn’t forgotten. Finally, at E3 2015, Sony announced that the game, a spiritual follow-up to cult classic platform-puzzlers Ico and Shadow of the Colossus would be released the following year. A gameplay demo introduced audiences to a boy and his gigantic griffin, who work together to escape an empty, crumbling castle. The video featured developer Team Ico’s signature dreamlike visuals, precise gameplay and quiet but emotional resonance. We’ll have to wait for The Last Guardian’s release in 2016 to see if our patience will be rewarded.
