The Last Guardian is getting a companion book in 2017
The rich world of The Last Guardian may get more fleshed out.
The Last Guardian released earlier this month after a VERY long time in development. No one knows why it took so long or what the hell was happening behind closed doors and it's been a question raised quite frequently after the game's release. Well, we may know more very soon.
A book appeared on Amazon today titled "The Last Guardian: An Extraordinary Story" that appears to be a book on everything related to The Last Guardian. The development, the lore, the plot, and much more are all detailed in this book. Not only will we get a glimpse of what happened during the nearly decade-long development, but we will get some insight on that massive world that is left purposely ambiguous in the game.
The book will contain art from the game and interviews with some of the developers on the game, but it sounds like it'll be a book made for die-hard fans of The Last Guardian and fans of gaming history. The book will set you back $39.99 and is only available in a hardcover format. You can read the official description below.
