You’ve waited 9 years for The Last Guardian, so why spoil it by watching the opening cinematic now

The Last Guardian is almost here, but if you really can’t wait…

Watch on YouTube

The Last Guardian was first announced in February 2007, and against the background of precursors Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, it instantly inspired a great deal of anticipation.

Some of that hype has waned in the nine and a half years since, of course, but those few faithful Team Ico fans like myself are still super excited to see The Last Guardian release next week on PS4.

Next week! Can you believe it? It feels like it’s been forever. I can’t bear to encounter any spoilers so I haven’t watched the video above, but I’ve been told it’s The Last Guardian’s opening cinematic, taken from the Japanese version. Are you watching, or waiting?
