Sony’s The Last Guardian was one of 2016’s most divisive titles, but fans of PlayStation classics like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus found a lot to love. Now fans of VR will be able to experience a slice of the game inside the PlayStation VR (PSVR) headset.
A VR experience based on The Last Guardian has just been announced at the 2017 PlayStation Experience in Anaheim. It sees players embody the young boy you play as in the main game and get an intimate meeting with Trico, the mythical creature that you grow a bond with during the course of the game.

While the piece will be playable on the PSX show floor, it’s actually releasing on December 12th with around “15 or 20 minutes of gameplay”, according to Sony’s Shawn Layden. It will be free and a standalone experience, meaning you won’t need a copy of the original game to play it.
