The Story Is About the Relationship Between a Boy and a Beast
The Last Guardian is a very story focused video game, like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus before it. Ico revolved around the growing friendship between the young boy of the same name, and the mysterious girl named Yorda. In that regard, The Last Guardian follows Ico more closely by focusing on the relationship between two different characters.
As the story is the main focus of the game, Sony has been careful to not show much, but we do know a little bit. The story is actually told from the perspective of an old man,who happens to be the young boy you play as. The man recounts his adventures of when he met a strange creature known as Trico. For reasons unknown the boy has been kidnapped from his home, and trapped in an abandoned castle. He then finds the giant creature trapped in captivity, and becomes friends with it when he frees Trico.
The Last Guardian is about the two setting off together to escape the castle and learn the truth about what’s happening, and the growing relationship between the boy and Trico. There’s obviously more going on, and even more mysterious is that trailers have shown us there may be more than one Trico like creature.
