Namco Professes Confidence In Ninja Theory's Enslaved
While many action games wish to emulate the greatness of God of War, many third-person experiences put titles like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves at the top of their inspiration list.
The publisher admits that Naughty Dog's 2009 Game of the Year winner "is the mindset" Ninja Theory utilized for their upcoming game, Enslaved. Namco Bandai Partners VP Olivier Comte told CVG said the project is "priority number one" for them this year, and the team most certainly had Uncharted 2 in the back's of their minds as they continued to work on Enslaved. Said Comte:
"We have two flagship titles that will be very, very important for us - especially for UK - which are Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Enslaved. We are very, very optimistic about Enslaved. For me, it's come from the heart. This is a game I was expecting my company to develop since I arrived here.
I'm a very big fan of Uncharted and we have to admit that it's in the mindset of games like that. The game has a unique atmosphere, the characters are fantastic... I love the game."
