If there is only one emotional journey you need to be taken on this year, then it is the one found in 11-11 Memories Retold. And today Bandai Namco have not only announced the release date, but have also provided a rather lovely trailer that features a wealth of acting talent.
Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 9th November 2018, 11-11 Memories Retold is a new and moving adventure set in World War I. In it, the main protagonists are Kurt, Harry and their animal companions, and in order to bring the adventure to life, Bandai Namco have enlisted the help of multi award winning actor Elijah Wood and International Emmy Award nominated Sebastian Koch as voice actors.
Yep, that’s right, a couple of big names there and Elijah Wood has been working as an actor for the past 26 years with credits such as “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, as well as the SpectreVision productions of “Open Windows” and “Cooties”. In 11-11: Memories Retold however, Elijah portrays the voice of Harry, a Canadian-American photographer who joins WWI only to discover the realities of war on the frontlines.
With more than 30 years on stage, television and movie theater screens, Sebastian Koch is especially famous for his parts in “Homeland”, “Bridge of Spies” and “The Life of Others”. As Kurt, he will embody a pacifist who is driven by duty.
Development of 11-11 Memories Retold is taking place by Aardman and DigixArt, and on completion will allow players to explore various scenes that could come from a genuine painting… as shown in the latest trailer. With its unique painted style, this is a game that is inspired by true events, as players are able to experience two sides of a complex historical event that will confront them with the realities of war. This includes facing the dramatic consequences of World War I both at the front and the rear, while trying to preserve their humanity for their loved ones.
The 9th November 2018 is sure to be one that many will be looking forward to. To get yourself in the mood, check out that trailer and the latest vlog below.
