To celebrate the arrival of The Last Guardian, Sony Interactive Entertainment UK has unveiled a comedy sketch which brings Trico, the Dog-Cat-Bird-Griffin Hybrid from the game’s beautiful fantasy world, to life in the present day.
Living with Trico gives a glimpse into what life would be like to own the colossal, fantastical beast, as a couple welcome Trico into their home. The comical take on British suburban married life follows the couple’s trials and tribulations as the husband gets put through his paces in his attempts to bond with a pet like no other.
Watch the Living with Trico sketch below:
The highly anticipated Japanese-made game, which has been in development since 2007, follows an unforgettable story of comradeship, trust and extraordinary adventures of a ruined city. Developed by Japan Studio, The Last Guardian tells the story of a young boy who meets a colossal, mysterious creature named Trico. The pair form a deep, unbreakable bond that will help them survive amongst the crumbling ruins and malevolent dangers that surround them.
By working together, the unlikely pair must communicate with one another to overcome tremendous obstacles and uncover the secrets of their beautiful fantasy world – and ultimately survive their touching and emotionally charged journey.
