Enslaved: Odyssey To The West Sets Sail On October 5

Enslaved, Ninja Theory’s post-apocalyptic, yet arborous action game, will be ready on October 5. Namco Bandai announced the game’s release date today and shared screenshots of Monkey smashing robots.


Ninja Theory pulled Hollywood talent to craft Enslaved’s world and story. Andy Serkis of Gollum fame did motion capture work for Monkey, an adept fighter you control. Alex Garland who worked on 28 Weeks Later wrote the Enslaved’s story. The characters start out on tense ground since Trip captured Monkey with a slave crown. As the game progresses, the characters learn to trust each other as Monkey protects Trip by carrying her through minefields.

    How many different God of War clones are Namco Bandai making. This and Knight’s Contract, both of which we’re getting because they’re ripoffs of an overrated series when we could be getting a Tales game. Oh that’s right. Tales games won’t be a million seller.

    To be honest though. Knight’s Contract actually looks good so I’ll be picking it up, but not until it hits $20. I’m throwing full price on a few games in the next couple months. Dragon Quest 9, Ys7, Phantasy Star Portable 2, Valkyria Chronicles 2, Test Drive Unlimited 2, not to mention all the games released this year I was interested in but not enough to drop $60 on that are having a ton of deals going on for them.

      Since this is coming out early October that still leaves time to release Another Title before Christmas, if you know what I mean.

    I can’t wait for this since Heavenly Sword was very fun and looked really great, the acting should be very life-like. So many good action games in Oct, this and Vanquish. Is the chubby dude in the first screen shot supposed to be Hakkai :)?

    • Yes, it’s Hakkai. :) I forgot where I read it but just like Goku is Monkey, Hakkai will be called Pig in this game. Now all their missing is Gojyo aka. Friar Sand or Sandy.

      I so want to get this since I like Journey to the West, but I’ll be overloaded with my primary genre of RPGs. :(
