A Sony representative confirmed to Polygon that $40 is the new, official price point for the PS4 adventure game that features a young boy and a cat-dog-bird creature.

The $40 price is available basically everywhere the game is sold physically and digitally. Here are some places where you can buy it right now:

After years of development and fears that it might have been canceled, The Last Guardian finally arrived in December 2016. Director Fumito Ueda acknowledged the "twists and turns" of the game's production and remarked that it "took longer than anyone expected."

GameSpot's The Last Guardian review scored it a 9/10.

"It isn't clear whether or not The Last Guardian means to be frustrating at times--if it's a concerted effort to test your patience for a lovable-yet-stubborn creature," reviewer Peter Brown said. "Your affection for Trico and sympathy for both characters blossom nonetheless, culminating in an enrapturing series of revelations that cements your attachment to their personalities. Trico is the undeniable star of the show, exhibiting believable physicality and emotional range, but the boy is a valuable lesson in how to be patient and resilient when faced with unforeseen challenges."
