[VIDEO] The Last Guardian coming for PS3 next year, looking awesome

Previously, Sony’s Team Ico made two of the best games of the last decade, ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. Today, the studio announced its next project, the PlayStation 3-bound The Last Guardian, would release in the 2011 holiday season. Can I get a “yay” in here?

Like its spiritual predecessors, The Last Guardian features a gorgeous, pastelly look, and a young adolescent hero who has a companion to help him through his adventure. However, whereas in ICO you had a girl (the useless Yorda), and in Shadow of Colossus a horse (the awesome Argo), here you have a, uh … cat … chihuahua … eagle … bird creature thing.

Okay, so I don’t know what this is. All I know is I want to play with that damn thing until it inevitably dies at the end and I cry about it like the giant man-baby sensitive, new-age guy I am. Trailer time!
