Bandai Namco, 'Wallace & Gromit' Creator Announce New World War I Game

11-11_-_still_image_-_trench_1524238398

A new, seemingly hand drawn game focusing on the story rather than the combat of World War I is coming from Bandai Namco, in association with Digix Art and Aardman Studios.

The announcement trailer gives us a first glimpse at the animation you can expect in 11-11. Over the soft sound of heartwrenching music 'In Flanders Field' was recited, a poem by Canadian writer John McCrae that told a story from the point of view of the dead that sacrificed themselves in the war. Better known for their big-screen animations and creative work on worldwide ad campaigns, 11-11: Memories Retold is a new frontier for the studio.

Memories Retold will sport a story-driven narrative adventure experience as well as a unique painted style that plans to deliver a uniquely entertaining experience.

"We are thrilled to be able to partner with the incredibly talented teams at Aardman Studios and DigixArt". He continues, "With this project we want to produce an emotionally rich experience with distinctive visual character to help you understand what war is all about".


This is the first game Aardan Animation Studios has worked on, primarily being known for its claymation work on films such as "Chicken Run" and the "Wallace & Gromit" series.

A game like 11-11: Memories Retold is right in their wheelhouse. The Montpellier, France-based company, founded in 2015, found quick success with its game "Lost In Harmony", a moving rhythm game released in 2016.

But now Bandai Namco is tackling the same hard subject matter, with a game by Aardman Studios for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

A release date for "11-11: Memories Retold" has not yet been revealed. You can check out the first screenshots showcasing the game's lovely art style right below.
