Namco Badai has released the fifth ‘behind the game’ video for their upcoming buddy-game, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom showing the collaborative gameplay between protagonist Tepeu and the leafy Majin. The video reveals how the game’s puzzle elements are “intertwined” with its action but there are occasions where puzzles and fighting take priority over each other. Developers Game Republic claim the enemies will be particularly difficult in order so that Majin, who Tepeu can order around, is utilised in the combat.
From what I played of the demo, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is really quite sweet and an enjoyable romp. Granted ‘sweet’ isn’t the normal description used for a game where you’re telling a hulking great beast to smash shadow-like-things in the face but enjoyable definitely sums up the gameplay regardless of my brief time with it.
Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is out November 26th on Xbox 360 and PS3.
