Developer Team Ico's latest game was first introduced to gamers as "Project Trico" back in 2005; very little information about The Last Guardian has been released since then, but a new trailer (below) was presented at the Tokyo Game Show. Team Ico's Fumito Ueda spoke with media after Sony's press conference, and The Escapist reports that Ueda "was 'confident' of the game's concept, and that the trial-and-error phase was over. It's now full-steam ahead for Team ICO."
The Last Guardian stars a young boy and Trico - the large, griffin-like creature. Players will have to nurture the two characters' relationship as the game progresses; initially, the two share an "unfriendly" relationship, with Trico not always cooperating with the boy. As gamers deal with the platforming and puzzles Team Ico games are known for, they must also find ways to for the boy and Trico to bond.
The Last Guardian will be 3D compatible, and is slated for a 2011 holiday release.
