Fans of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus waited a very long time to see the return of The Last Guardian at last year’s E3 convention.
For E3 2016, there was a new trailer shown, though it is a very brief one. The trailer wasn’t to show off more of the game this time around, but to announce something many have been waiting to see for many years now: an official release date for the game. Some still refuse to believe that the game will actually be released until they have it in their hands—that’s how long they’ve been waiting—but for those who choose to believe, you can find out the release date in the trailer below.
The Last Guardian is the stuff of legends. It’s been in development since 2007, and first appeared at E3 2009. Then it disappeared. There’s been whispers here and there since then, but for the most part no one knew anything about its status and whether or not it was even still being made. Each and every E3 since ’09 we’ve been awaiting more on it, and now, six years later, it has returned.
The Sony presentation at E3 2015 opened with the first gameplay demo for The Last Guardian, which comes from the makers of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. You can check out the video that got fans so excited for the game originally and the new gameplay preview below.
Before God of War III was released on the PlayStation 3, a special new two-pack of the first and second games updated in beautiful Blu-ray high definition were released to really get fans excited for the new game and capitalize on the technologies we now have in movies and gaming.
Now it looks like another popular game developer has the same thoughts going on. According to The Sixth Axis (via G4), rumors have been circulating that Team Ico was possibly planning to release two of their immensely-popular titles, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, in a new two-game bundle, and that the duo would be updated in the highest of high definition Blu-ray for the PS3.
It has been a few days now since the E3 video game and electronics convention just came and went, leaving many exciting previews and announcements in its wake, but we here at Geeks of Doom wanted to put together a basic wrap-up for those of you who missed it all and do not yet know of all of the treasures that came of it. The big dogs in Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo all had exciting conventions, with Sony and Microsoft making some magnificent announcements. Included in this mass of geek-tastic announcements: A look at Microsoft’s motion-capture attempt with Project Natal, Sony’s motion-capture prototype, and games like Mass Effect 2, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Halo: ODST, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, God of War III, and others.
In celebration of the convention and all of the great things that came out of it, we’ve decided to put together this little recap of the biggest and brightest things that we saw. We will do our very best to offer information on the products, as well as the mind-blowing videos that were shown! To start, we’ll go over the three main outlets and what they presented to us. After that, we’ll take a look at all of the games and videos that were also presented by the various publishers.
