So far, we don't know a great deal about Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, other than that it's being developed by Game Republic - the same studio that gave us the Genji games and Folklore, among others - and that it appears to be headed for a nebulous summer release. So it might not be fair, at this point, to say that it's aping the style of developer Team Ico's games, and of the upcoming Last Guardian in particular. But if previous screens and the trailer are anything to go by, it sure looks like it.
A new batch of screens for Majin hit the internets today, and while they're a damn sight more colorful than what we've seen of Last Guardian, it's impossible to look at the starkly pretty ruins and monster/boy co-op dynamic without drawing a few parallels. If you'd like to decide for yourself, you can jump to the screens - all 40 of 'em - by clicking the thumbnails below.
