First Look At Namco Bandai’s Ninja Theory Game

By Spencer . September 30, 2009 . 12:02am


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.

    the characters look like ravers. but, Heavenly Sword was awesome and so should this be.

    I heard it is an “adventure” game which sounds great.

    characters are said to be inspired by Seiyuki.

    Interesting setting.. I liked Heavenly Sword, Andy Serkis was excellent as the villain, he’s probably doing the voice of the monkey king here too? I think this girl looks way prettier than Nariko.
