The notoriously delayed game was initially revealed at E3 in 2009, with a planned release for 2011 exclusive to PS3. However, after countless delays and disappearances, the game finally resurfaced at E3 in 2015 where it was then slated for a 2016 launch.

After finally giving the game a launch date of October 2016, the President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios announced in September that further delays will occur due to development issues and unforeseen bugs. The game was then given its December 6 launch date. Our fingers are crossed that no more delays will occur.

The Last Guardian is a third-person game that combines action-adventure and puzzle elements. The player will take control of an armed boy who can run, jump, climb and interact with the environment around him. When the boy finds himself in a strange and mystical land, he discovers a mysterious feathered creature with which he forms a deep and unbreakable bond. If the unlikely pair wish to survive, they must rely on each other and escape the dangers they will face during their journey. It’s an emotional story of friendship and trust. If you still haven’t watched the trailer, check it out below.

You can also check out the 18 minute gameplay video that was revealed at The Tokyo Game Show in September.

The game  is currently being sold in two editions that can be purchased from GameStop. The Standard Edition will retail for $59.99 and the Collector’s Edition for $119.99. Both of these editions will release on December 6. It should also be noted that if you pre-order either of these copies, you will receive a digital mini soundtrack and also a PS4 theme.

The Last Guardian is one of the most anticipated games to launch in 2016 but do you think it will live up to its hype? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
