For many years, The Last Guardian had become something of a running joke at Sony’s E3 Press Conferences. The game was first announced in 2009, and it was planned to be released in 2011 on the Playstation 3. After this initial announcement, Team Ico fell silent for several years. Many feared that the title had fallen into development hell, never to return.
During today’s Sony press conference at E3, The Last Guardian took the stage for the second year in a row. Fans were finally given a firm release date along with a new trailer.
The Last Guardian is coming to the Playstation 4 on October 25, 2016. Considering that this game took seven years to reach audiences, it’s hard to say whether or not The Last Guardian could live up to its mythical hype.
