Totally Real Last Guardian Creature Designs

Surely one of the worst forms of torture for Sony fans is the perpetual ‘on again/off again’ news about The Last Guardian. You can pretty much set a clock to stories popping up about it every year right around E3, and 2014 is no exception, with news coming out about its cancellation being announced and denied in short order.

Well, over here at Twinfinite we don’t actually know whether it’s gone forever or whether it’s going to rise up like a phoenix. What we do know however is that the creature from The Last Guardian has gone through a number of design changes over the years, and Team Ico’s inability to settle on one might be the reason for the delay.

There was talk of making The Last Guardian a cross-platform game. Early renderings didn’t work out however.

Late in the cross-platform experiment, there was an attempt to also incorporate memes into the design of The Last Guardian. Alas.

Finally, we were able to uncover the actual reason for the cancellation of The Last Guardian was originally announced.
