Namco Bandai is bringing Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
to PC for the first time, releasing a new "premium edition" of the game later this month. A representative for the publisher told Polygon
the re-release is also coming to PS3.
It's unclear what makes this edition of Ninja Theory's fantasy adventure a premium one, although we'd wager it features the Pigsy's Perfect 10 DLC
. We're also unsure if it's coming via retail and/or downloadable channels, although the game appeared in Steam's database
earlier this year. We've reached out to Namco for more info.
It has to be said, it's somewhat surprising to see Enslaved
get a re-release three years on. Despite being a hit with critics including many of the Joystiq staff
, it didn't set the world alight with its sales
, shifting 450,000 copies in three months after a rather lo-fi promotional campaign. In that regard, maybe a sudden re-release isn't that much of a surprise.
