Namco Bandai has released its E3 trailer for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and it concludes by revealing that the game's due out in October on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Enslaved is being developed by UK-based Ninja Theory, last seen doing PS3-exclusive hackandslash Heavenly Sword.

But while there are visual similarities between the main characters of the two titles - Enslaved's Trip and Heavenly Sword's Nariko - the new game is about an uneasy alliance between Trip and muscular survivor Monkey.

The two find themselves in a gloriously florid post-apocalyptic world up against rampant war robots that were never instructed to shut down when humanity virtually wiped itself out.

Monkey's been slapped with a collar that will kill him if Trip expires, so the two have to join forces to make progress. Trip's trying to head home.
