A complete guide for The Last Guardian.
The Last Guardian is, at last, out- and if you want to make your way through the game, you’d be best served by the walkthrough that we have for the game. In it, we cover the entire story of the game, start to end, so you know exactly what you should be doing, and where you should be going, at any point in the game.
But there are some other things you might want help with- if you need help with some of the Trophies of the game, or if you just want general tips and tricks, you’re in the right place, and this guide will help you out with that. Let’s get started.
TIPS AND TRICKS
Understand Trico. Trico is the name of the beast in the game, and he will be your companion through the story- but you need to understand him and his moods, if you are to get anywhere. There are some very obvious indicators about how Trico is feeling:
If Trico’s eyes are dark green, he is feeling affectionate towards you
If Trico’s eyes are white or yellow, he is distracted
If Trico’s eyes are pink, he’s feeling pretty aggressiveAdditionally, if you get too far away from Trico, he will whine, but he grunts and howls when he is ready to take you somewhere. If you ever see him grunting a lot, take that as a sign that you are supposed to get on him so you can progress further.
You can calm Trico by petting his neck
If Trico is going in the wrong direction, jump off of him. Doing so ‘resets’ him
Use L1 to focus the camera on Trico. You can also give Trico commands:
Tap R1: Call Trico
Hold R1+X: Sit/scold
Hold R1+O: Stand/praise
Hold R1+ /\: Stomp
Hold R1+ : Swipe
