About The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian is the latest work of the game designer, Fumito Ueda, who has created the beloved and award-winning titles ICO and Shadow of the Colossus for the PlayStation 2 system. It is an action-adventure game where the player will take on the role of a young boy who goes on a journey along with a mysterious and gigantic creature, Trico, feared as a man-eating beast. The two will adventure through treacherous ancient ruins and gradually deepen the bond between each other, facing many difficulties on the way.
