Based on the artwork, screenshots, and videos I have seen so far, “Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom” is another game that has caught my interest. Indulging in a co-op partnership with an AI beast while solving puzzles and combat seems like the perfect plan for a weekend. I’m looking forward to reviewing this game when it releases November 23,2010 with a MSRP of $59.99. In the interim, I’ll have to make do with the free playable demo being released tomorrow on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Wrapped in an emotional journey of courage and friendship, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom takes players on a majestic adventure as Tepeu, a cunning individual who must rely on his agility to triumph over increasing obstacles.

As players progress through the game’s lush environments, the Majin will continue to 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 the Majin must work in tandem to persevere over any challenge that lies in their path. This complementary relationship will only deepen and evolve as the story unfolds.
In the downloadable demo, players will set out on the game’s very first level where the hero first encounters the Majin. Together they embark on their voyage through the beautiful, yet darkness-infected kingdom. The demo gives players a taste of the vast wealth of gameplay the full version possesses with vile enemies to overcome and conundrums to solve.
