Namco Bandai today announced Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, an action-adventure game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Developed by Game Republic, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is scheduled to be released this Summer.
- In Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, a once thriving society is suddenly engulfed by a dark force that nearly eradicates all of its inhabitants. Many tried to reclaim their fallen homeland but were annihilated by strange warriors who rose from the darkness. A hundred years later, a cunning young outsider is drawn to this forsaken kingdom where he encounters and befriends Majin, a mysterious monster-like being with incredible strength. Now in an effort to restore the empire, the two set out to uncover Majin’s forgotten past and the secrets that lie within the ancient land.Wrapped in an emotional journey of courage and respect, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom takes players on a majestic adventure as a cunning individual who must rely on his agility to triumph over increasing obstacles. What he lacks in might, his AI-controlled companion makes up for with his towering size and brawn. Majin can assess the current gameplay conditions and act accordingly or follow commands with the press of a button. As players progress through the game’s lush environments, Majin will continue to grow and acquire additional abilities that will provide access to previously obstructed areas.
Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom redefines co-op AI gameplay by delivering an accessible experience that offers the perfect mix of stealth, action, platform navigation and combat that is designed to keep the journey gripping and immersive. Though each character has their own objective, teamwork is essential for survival as the hero and Majin must fight in tandem to persevere over any challenge that lies in their path. This complementary relationship will only continue to deepen and evolve as the story unfolds.
