In gaming terms, 2007 is practically the Stone Age. But that is how long gamers have been waiting for Team Ico to release The Last Guardian. Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are two classic titles which blew everyone’s minds. The Last Guardian is almost certainly destined to do the same. But the game has struggled through one delay after another and was very nearly cancelled on more than one occasion. Literally the only reason it will finally see the light of day is rabid fan support.
At E3, Sony confirmed an actual release date for the game. And if that’s got you whooping with joy, just wait until you find out what it is …
