Now Playing: The Last Guardian - E3 2016 Trailer

The trailer ends with the Trico making anguished noises and the young boy asking if his wings are broken. As expected from Team Ico, The Last Guardian looks like it's going to be tugging at our heartstrings.

After years of speculation, Sony used its E3 2015 briefing to announce that The Last Guardian, which was originally revealed in 2009 as a PS3 title, had shifted to PS4. It is being developed by Sony Japan Studio and genDESIGN.

In November 2015, Sony said it was purposefully holding back what it shows of The Last Guardian because it is a story-heavy game.
