The Last Guardian Gets Funny Live Action Commercial with a Bit of Self-Irony on the Long Wait

on December 1, 2016 11:54 AM

Gamers have waited for The Last Guardian for a long, long time, and Sony Interactive Entertainment is quite aware of that. That’s why they appear not to mind doing a bit of self-irony about that.

Today they released the second live action commercial of a count-down series, and it’s quite funny.

The video is set in a Japanese game store named “Game Jungle,” and the manager is showing the 2009 schedule to a younger employee, asking him if he knows about The Last Guardian. The kid answer that there was indeed something like that, but he forgot about it.

Then they get a phone call, and the young Employee is surprised by the fact that the customer on the phone is asking to pre-order the game.

You can check the commercial out below, and if you’re curious, you can also watch the one released yesterday.

If you prefer some spiffy gameplay, you can also watch some recently shared during an event in Japan, and more gameplay footage published by SIE.  You can also check out a few screenshots that appeared on yesterday’s issue of Weekly Famitsu.

Last, but not least, you can enjoy an unboxing of the upcoming title’s sizable collector’s edition made directly by Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida.

The Last Guardian will release in Japan and in North America on December 6th, while European gamers will have to wait one day longer, as it’ll launch on Decmber 7th. Fans in the UK unfortunately get the short end of the stick, and will have to wait until December 9th.
