Ninja Theory and Namco Bandai’s console-only retelling of Journey to the West, cleverly named Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, appears to be getting a PC release.
Journey to the West is the story of Sun Wukong, who… you know what? It’s Monkey. Everybody knows Monkey. And if they don’t, they should. Enslaved gives everything a sci-fi action-adventure twist, with the titular Monkey (played by Andy Serkis) forced to escort a technically-savvy young girl named Trip back to her village, 300 miles to the west, by duffing up evil robots along the way.
Word of the PC version comes from Polygon, who were told by Namco Bandai that Enslaved will be getting a Premium Edition re-release on PC and PS3 later this month. The original game was well-received on launch although it didn’t sell marvellously; let’s hope that the PC version does a bit better.
The video below is definitely not from Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
