Enslaved Makes Its Trailer Debut

Here is a trailer for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, the latest from Heavenly Sword-developer Ninja Theory. It’s been billed as “tactical action-adventure” by Namco Bandai, set 150 years from now on an Earth ruled by robots. The player controls Monkey, who travels with an AI partner he is charged to protect.
I’m not sure how to describe this thing; some folks have been comparing it to 2008′s Prince of Persia, which seems appropriate in theory, but the action in the trailer doesn’t seem to support that comparison, in my opinion. It’s hack ‘n’ slash and what appears to be some fairly frantic running and jumping. It’s not completely original, but it looks like enough of a twist on formula as to be interesting.
