In more than a week, fans will finally get their hands in the much-awaited "The Last Guardian" this December. To intensify their excitement, Sony recently dropped a new trailer of the video game that would tease the title's followers more.

"The Last Guardian" teaser showed how players will get close to Trico and how the game works. The game's designer Fumito Ueda has been known for his invaluable knowledge in animation, thus the title's development is evidently thoroughly cultivated.

According to Forbes, games that have complex and excessively long animations tend to hinder the players' input. But in video games "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus," the animation is evidently well that some are now excited to see Fumiro Euda's take in "The Last Guardian." With that, the trailer only showed a glimpse of the game's well-developed animation after almost a decade of development.

Aside from the animation, the video teaser also showed "The Last Guardian" gameplay, Game Debate reported. As the clip is directly from Sony Japan, the game doesn't carry the English language, but the clip doesn't carry a lot of speech so nothing is much is missed by the audience.

Fumito Ueda also revealed that "The Last Guardian" will be a combination of "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus" that promises to exceed its predecessors by having the best features of the two titles. Hence, the upcoming game promises to be the next big thing in the world of classic gaming.

"The Last Guardian" is set to be released on PlayStation 4 on Dec. 6. However, it is not yet sure if it will be out for PC, although a lot of fans are clamoring for the Windows release.

If it will indeed come for PC, it will surely take another time of development. For more "The Last Guardian" updates, stay tuned on GamenGuide!
