Enslaved developers talk teamwork, relationship

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, the action title being developed by Ninja Theory and published by Namco, just received its second dev diary, in which the makers talk about the “symbiotic relationship” between Monkey and Trip, the two main characters.

In a daring – and desperate – kidnapping kind of way, Trip “enlists” Monkey to protect her in her journey back home from the ship she was imprisoned in. Through the connection of a headband, Trip will need to stay alive in order for Monkey to do the same, which is the reason for the above diary’s existence. Teamwork is crucial and necessary if you want to get through a perilous, post-apocalyptic America.

Check out our hands-on and familiarize yourself with the game before Enslaved – on schedule – hits shelves on October 5th (NA) and 8th (EU) for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3.
