Sony has released a new unboxing video for the Collector's Edition of The Last Guardian. The game launches next week.
In the new video President of Sony's Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida shows the contents included in the game's Collector's Edition box: a copy of the game, an artwork book, the digital soundtrack, stickers and a miniature Trico statue.
The artwork book gives an in-depth look at a game that has been in development for years, with artwork going back to the early days of development.
The key for the digital soundtrack that is included in the box gives players access to the game's 10 tracks by redeeming it through the PlayStation Store. The soundtrack will also be available on iTunes and on vinyl at a later date.
The Collector's Edition also comes with a miniature Trico statue that shows the creature laying on the ground as the boy stands on his head.
"I'd like to say thank you to all of you, fans of Ueda-san's work. For all the years we've been working on this title, we were able to maintain our momentum and energy and passion because we knew you are waiting to play this game, and I hope you enjoy this game when it comes out. The Last Guardian is for you." Yoshida concludes.
The Last Guardian has been in development since 2007. The game was first announced at E3 2009 and was planned to be released in 2011 exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
Because the game suffered numerous delays developer JAPANStudio eventually decided to scrap the PlayStation 3 release in favour of a PlayStation 4 release.
In The Last Guardian, the player controls a young boy who befriends a giant half-bird-half-mammal creature, Trico, and the two work together to evade guards that are after them both.
In the game the player must manipulate Trico as they would a real animal, such as luring it with food, to use it to reach high platforms or other remote places, while evading enemies.
The Last Guardian launches December 6st 2016 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
