Enslaved Trailer Explains Monkey Slavery

by Alice O'Connor, May 10, 2010 8:20am PDT

Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory has released the first trailer for Enslaved, its heart-warming tale of an escaped slave's curious enslavement of a "strong and brutish" fellow escapee to serve as her bodyguard during her westward journey across a post-apocalyptic United States of America.

Playing as the enslaved Monkey, players will face "a mix of combat, strategy and environment traversal" as they protect their AI-controlled owner Trip. It's a lot like a dystopian version of classic Chinese novel 'Journey to the West'--and classic TV show 'Monkey'--made slightly uncomfortable by removing the myth and allegory.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is headed to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in "late 2010."
