After seeing a leaked, proof-of-concept teaser and then a shaky-cam trailer of Team Ico's next PS3 project The Last Guardian, I was surprised to see the game conspicuously absent from Sony's press materials at E3. But now high-res screenshots and a direct version of the E3 trailer are available, which I feel compelled to bring to your attention. What a pretty and heartfelt game this is shaping up to be.

  



I think The Last Guardian is my most-wanted game from E3 that I saw the least of. How about you?

Falcor still horrifies me. That blank stare gives me chills.

I am a biga-huge fan of implicit story-telling in my games, ala Ico and Left4Dead.

Hope this will end well for the baby Gryphon. Regardless the game is a must-have for me.

This is by far my most anticipated game for any console.  Hopefully we only have to wait another year or so before we're able to play it, but part of me is thinking it will be at least 2 years...

Still Team ICO  has never let us down.  They produce gaming perfection. These guys are true artists.

Eh.

I want this game more than anything I saw at E3. The gryphon animation is absolutely spot on. It gives the character so much emotion. I feel attached to it already.

i really bugs me that the boy looks really cartoony and the big rat griffin thing is very realistic looking

I don't know why, but their games always have an unparalleled majestic beauty to them. Makes you wonder what an impact the trailer would've had, if the proof of concept footage hadn't leaked before.

Thought I'd point out a bug I noticed where screenshots are rendering behind the flash video on this post. Not sure if it's a known issue but figured it would be good to let you guys know. I'm running Firefox.

Definitely interested in this game now! As for my most wanted game from E3 that I saw the least of..would have to be Dead Rising 2 but then again that wasn't at E3 at all lol

I like that actually, I think it adds to the look of it all. Maybe the actual game will look different?

The kid still looks like the weakest link. Visually everything looks stunning, but that bright white tunic looks at odds.

#14 Posted by SaucySala (346 posts) -

Damn Sony FINALLY stepping it up on the games, right after I sell my PS3.

Looks like I'm gonna be buying another one whenever this hits shelves...

#15 Posted by c_rakestraw (853 posts) -

Out of everything I saw at E3, this is THE game I want most -- even though we haven't seen much of it yet. I'm really looking forward to playing this.

#16 Posted by Cazamalos (983 posts) -

this game is going to make cry when either the kid or the monster die, i will cry a lot :(

I already want to cry. Just based on the bloody trailer.

Kind of. Don't get your hopes up like that for every game that looks amazing on a release trailer, you might get your heart broken.
#21 Posted by cinemandrew (711 posts) -

After watching this trailer again. I realized just how much the baby gryphon reminds me of one of my dogs. The way he moves is just so similar, it's kinda freaky. Well, before I wanted a PS3, now I need one.

#22 Posted by drew327 (607 posts) -

Looks intriguing, I'm in!

The visuals are just icing. Have you ever played a Team Ico game?

Yes. I advise you read my post again, as many times as necessary.
#25 Posted by Wildfire570 (719 posts) -

I never played a Team Ico game before but this looks real fantastic.

#26 Posted by PJ (1147 posts) -

Im not interrested in this at all.
non of team icos previouse games have eather, a several houre escort mission and a slide show. Its just too damn artsy and i dont really play games for the artsyness of it. I play to have fun and i would take a brain dead shooter like Serious Sam and Painkiller over this shit every day. The thing about PS3 that makes me excited is Uncharted 2 and not really anything else, modNation racers looked pretty fun though.

#27 Posted by TheGodOfHell (29 posts) -

I love how this trailer leaves so much for the imagination to feast... Castlevania: LoS and this were the winners of the show for me.

I read it many, many times, and I still think that Team Ico makes excellent games.

That's not the point. Sega used to make great games too, now look at them. I'm saying you should get excited with release trailers, the final product might come as a disappointment.
#30 Posted by bekern (563 posts) -
The animations for the gryphon are amazing, I agree with above one of the posters-there are a bunch of small things he does that remind me of my dog

Sega still makes great games (I bought Phantasy Star Portable just the other day and can't put it down), but now they also publish shitty games from bad devs.
#32 Posted by Lies (3867 posts) -

These "screens" all seem to be in reverse ratio. Did someone forget to tell Team Ico it's 16:9 horizontal, not 16:9 vertical?

Or maybe you just have to turn your TV on it's side to play the Last Guardian. Which would be hilarious.

#33 Posted by Aaox (1657 posts) -

I... I have a lump in my throat. 

Don't cry. Don't cry.
Don't... Cry...
#34 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8609 posts) -

Looks beautiful. What a great trailer and if this game can have the same emotion and gameplay to back it up, we will have a winner.

#35 Posted by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

Beautiful.

Look, if you don't get your hopes up then:
  • If the game is good, good for you
  • If it isn't you won't get your heart broken

I'm not saying I'm dying for this game, but Team Ico is Top Class Development and have an outstanding track record. Anyone who doubts them most likely don't know who they are.
#39 Posted by Steve_C (1756 posts) -

Easily my most anticipated game, so this can't come quick enough. Team ICO continues to inspire.

Even the damn trailer moves me, and i don't think any other studio has done that to me.

This trailer didn't warrant an "Eh" though. Regardless of what the game is like when it's out, "Eh"-ing this trailer is just ridiculous.
Also this is Team Ico we're talking about here, I Loved the 2 previous games.

The Joystiq podcast mentioned that this game won't be coming out in the next fiscal year.

Don't feed the troll.
#43 Edited by ChickenPants (934 posts) -

I like the way the kid's styled differently to the ehh 'animal'.

My most anticipated game.

I'm starting to think of anyone on the GB team Brad's tastes are the ones most similar to my own.

#44 Posted by Zatoichi_Sanjuro (945 posts) -

I thought I was out-growing console gaming until SOTC came along.

Dude! Are you slow or something? I doubt them, and I know who they are. Sometimes companies lose quality when getting ported to a different gen, or sometimes they just mess up. You never know! It is not reasonable to get your hopes up based on a release trailer.

I'll let it go once you let it go. But like I said this is Team Ico, they know what they're doing, and they don't take too long or too short between releases.

I'll finally buy a PS3 - just for this game.

#49 Posted by Media_Master (3283 posts) -

I want this!

#50 Posted by TheGremp (2064 posts) -

How can people even want this game when you know nothing about it?  I don't know about you, but I got absolutely nothing out of that video...  Made no sense at all.  Can someone please explain to me what the fuck I just saw, and why I wasted 4:37 of my life in hopes of finding any sense in this trailer?
Also, the art style of the kid looks really weird over the style of everything else.
