The Last Guardian brings life-size Trico to TGS 2015

Communicate with Trico at the Sony booth.

The Last Guardian

Last week, genDesign, the creative studio behind The Last Guardian, teased “a new and different way” of bringing The Last Guardian creature Trico to the Tokyo Game Show. Today, we see what they meant.

At this week’s Tokyo Game Show, there will be a corner of the Sony booth where attendees can “communicate” with a life-size version of Trico, who is projected on a giant screen and controlled by the same AI used in the game. By the look of it, Trico will react to your movements.

Have a look at the communication at work below:

The Tokyo Game Show runs from September 17 to 20.
