The Last Guardian is a fantasy action-adventure game with puzzle elements developed by genDESIGN and SIE Japan Studio. Its director and designer is Fumito Ueda, who is known for his work on Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The Last Guardian is said to be heavily influenced by these two titles in terms of style and gameplay elements.

The game follows a young boy who befriends a huge winged beast called Trico. The two work together to escape a giant castle where they’re both held prisoner. The players will have to take care of Trico and also use him to complete puzzles. For example, they might throw a barrel to gain Trico’s attention and make him move to a specific location.
