Namco Bandai and Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory are teaming up to make Enslaved. The upcoming PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 game is set 150 years in the future where robots rule over humans in post-apocalyptic America.


You control Monkey, mo-capped by Lord of the Rings actor Andy Serkis, after he’s captured by a slave ship rumored to take people out West. Trip, a tech savvy captive, hacks Monkey’s headband and links their lives together. If Trip dies Monkey dies, which forces Monkey to escape and protect Trip. Monkey is described as a brutish fellow, armed with takedown moves and a staff reminiscent of a certain Journey of the West character.

Trip is also reminiscent of a previous work, Heavenly Sword. Doesn’t she look like Nariko?





Namco Bandai plans to release Enslaved next year.
