The Last Guardian shown at E3 by Sony, coming next year |


The Last Guardian shown at E3 for first time in years, coming in 2016

After years away from the spotlight, Sony has revealed The Last Guardian yet again.

This time, it comes as a PlayStation 4 title, with a planned release of 2016. The game, with its focus on adventure and friendship between a boy and a hippogriff-like flying dog, first appeared at Sony’s E3 press conference in 2009 as a PlayStation 3 title. Little else has been seen of the game since, though Sony continually promised it was in development. Rumors had sprung up prior to E3 that this may finally be the year it appeared (though to be fair, rumors of its life and death have sprouted up ahead of nearly every E3).

A gameplay demo was shown of the game at the conference, embedded below. The game was the first shown at Sony’s E3 press conference.this year.

Stay tuned for more from Sony and E3.
