Tokyo Game Show has kicked off, and the only game I was interested in has already shown its mesmerising-monster-shaped face. There’s been no new news of The Last Guardian for over a year, and the new trailer is as gorgeous and intriguing as 2009’s E3 trailers. It seems to show a bit of gameplay, but is mostly in-engine footage of the big creature and the kid interacting. Having been getting rather excited at the thoughts of the game coming out soon, I now have to calm myself down as the supposed release date will be “Holiday 2011”, according to IGN. I don’t know what this means, exactly, but it’s obviously not going to be out anytime soon! In the meantime, I’ll have the HD remakes of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus to keep me busy, and that’s a fine compromise to me. Click below for trailers.
If you were one of those people, like me, who had never heard of ICO, or Shadow of the Colossus back when they came out on the PS2, but keep seeing them show up in top-10 game lists and whatnot on all the big gaming sites, then you have two choices – buy a used PS2, and find copies of both games on ebay for around 40 bloody quid, and enjoy 2 of the most beautiful games ever created. Or wait for the PS3 remakes in Spring. I’ll be doing both (already did option 1 a few months back). Both games will be released as a double-pack on one bluray disc, which is just lovely.
Enjoy the two new trailers below.
