“The Last Guardian” is the final chapter in the trilogy and it started with “Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.” The trilogy involves a plot, where Ico is controlled by the player. Ico is said to be cursed by being born with horns on his head, left in a remote empty castle by his village, notes The Verge.
While Ico manages to liberate himself, comes across various characters. One of its is Yorda, a young frail girl who is followed by shadow-like creatures that try to drag her to a different realm. Ico tries to help Yorda to escape and finds that her mother, the queen residing in the castle is trying to use Yorda to lengthen her own life.
“Shadow of the Colossus” is a spiritual sequel to Ico, but its creator, Fumito Ueda stated that although it’s a sequel it dates back to the previous mission in the same world as Ico. It has Wander as its main character; who is being controlled by the player. Wander has to bring life back to the body of Mono, his lady-love. And this can only be achieved by killing sixteen monolithic beasts that wander the landscape.
