Namco Hints At Enslaved Sequel

Publisher professes delight at critical reception; says dismal sales were down to poor timing.

Namco Bandai, publisher of Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey To The West, has said that poor sales have not deterred it from considering a sequel.

Speaking to Silicon Era, VP of marketing Carlson Choi and Bandai label president Makoto Iwai said that the critical reception afforded Enslaved gave the publisher grounds to overlook the dismal 460,000 units the game sold worldwide.

Screw you... we want a Heavenly Sword sequel.

If Ninja Theory didn't say 'Screw you" to Sony, then that just might off happened. HS sold almost 8 times Enslaved on the PS3 that Enslaved sold across both consoles. I rented it and it was nothing amazing. I really would love a sequel to Heavenly Sword....Kai was some awesomeness. The characters and cinematics were so much better, the gameplay and graphics, and HS is old as dirt now, and still is such a visually striking movie. 6hours but a 6 hour experience worth every penny.

they can't bring out sequels to Heavenly Sword, Lair & Folklore.

Lair sold much more than Enslaved did and heck Two Worlds that was dogged on so much and sold low now also gets a sequel.

Hell, even Alan Wake (though it came out way after Lair) sold a bit less than Lair to date. As of Jan2011, Alan Wake had only moved roughly 710K while Lair was still at roughly 750k life time.

Come on Sony, forget the haters. If they don't like Heavenly Sword, Lair or Folklore then F* 'em, let them go enjoy what they enjoy and let's enjoy what WE enjoy.

Gad, look at the insane improvements in all these PS3 exlusives like KZ3, Motorstorm, UC3, Re3 etc etc; can you imagine the kind of improvements and new gameplay we could have been seeing on a Folklore2 or Lair3 or Heavenly Sword 3 by now?

Honestly, F* the haters. They're killing gaming. If you don't like certain games then don't play them but to actively look to steal these games sequels from fans that love the games is nothing but morbid hater bullsh*t.

Heavenly Sword 2 will be made, by who and when is the question. Sony owns the IP and many gamers have been nudging Sony to make it.

Just goes to show you that even with Enslaved's low sales it will get a sequel.

I just don't understand how the first one really left itself open for a sequel Nariko dies, Bohan gets bitchslapped back to his kingdom

Namco sure knows how to lose money.

"Namco Bandai, publisher of Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey To The West, has said that poor sales have not deterred it from considering a sequel."

Changed it into:

"Namco Bandai, publisher of 'Tales Of' series, has said that poor sales have not deterred it from considering another Tales game in English version."

I really enjoyed Enslaved. I liked Heavenly Sword a little more I think but I would definitely look forward to a sequel of either.

cliffbo2380d ago
