Namco Bandai has announced the first batch of DLC for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West . It's called Pigsy's Perfect 10 and it'll be released later this year along with the option to play the game in 3D. The new pack tells a side story to the main plot, and it's focused on Trip's fat friend, Pigsy, who wants to build a perfect companion out of scrap parts. Yes, we will play as Pigsy, which means we'll have a very different gameplay experience…Pigsy is no Monkey, remember. If you played the game, though, you remember Pigsy's grappling hook and sniper rifle, so that right there should give you a clue… The addition of 3D is pretty cool, too, and remember that you don't need a 3D-compatible TV and the corresponding glasses: it's TriOviz, which means any TV can manage it (it just isn't as good as true 3D).
We're not sure when these updates will come, but at least we know they'll arrive for the PS3 and 360 versions of the game before the year is out. How often do we get DLC that isn't multiplayer-oriented? Of course, there is no multiplayer for the game in question but even so…the point remains. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is one of the more enjoyable experiences of the year. Give it a try if you haven't already.
