Sony has released new screenshots for The Last Guardian, Team Ico's eagerly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive. The images show the game's main character, a young boy who seems to be trying to escape his captives, and his bird-like companion Toriko.

Like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus before it, The Last Guardian is all about the relationship between these two characters, and we get to see them teaming up to explore a dungeon-like location, navigate a chasm, and play a bit of hide and seek.

The Last Guardian has been in development since 2007 and suffered multiple delays. However, in June The Last Guardian's release date was confirmed as October 25. PlayStation Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida previously said he's "not worried" that the game won't live up to the hype.

"Lots of people are waiting," he said. "I expect people will enjoy it when it comes out."

Director Fumito Ueda, meanwhile, said he's working hard to ensure that The Last Guardian stays true to his original vision.

"For me, what's most important is that I am creating and completing this game in the way that I envisioned it," he said. "And from a player's perspective, myself, too, how I want the player to experience this world. So as long as that stays true, then I think that's all I really need to do."

Sony has announced a $120 special edition version of the game that includes a statue, art book, soundtrack, and more, all of which comes inside a special box. GameSpot played The Last Guardian at E3. You can find out what we thought in the written preview here.
