In a series of tweets posted to its Twitter page, the studio announced a "special theater screening" for the game. A 6-meter high screen, located at its Tokyo Game Show booth, will feature an AI-controlled image of Trico, The Last Guardian's bird-dog mascot.

genDESIGN encourages TGS visitors to come "communicate" with the creature. It's not immediately clear from the posts, or the included GIF of Trico in action, whether the projection is truly interactive or not.

The screening of the game's companion is the only confirmed fashion in which The Last Guardian will appear at Tokyo Game Show. The Last Guardian was most recently playable at E3, where Sony reintroduced it to the world as a PlayStation 4 game during its press conference.
genDESIGN first hinted at a Tokyo Game Show presence for the game, via a photo of the gigantic projection version of Trico, last week.
