Bandai Namco’s collaboration with Aardman and the minds behind Valiant Hearts is out today. 11-11: Memories Retold is a dramatic narrative-driven adventure, the story follows the intersecting lives of a Canadian photographer (voiced by Elijah Wood) looking for adventure on the European Front during WWI and a German father who learns his son has gone missing in action. As they “discover the reality of war,” their paths will cross on November 11, 1918 as the Great War comes to an end.
The game’s development comes from a collaboration between Aardman Studios (the minds behind Wallace & Gromit) who’ve supplied a unique painterly aesthetic to the game, and DigixArt whose co-founder led the development of award-winning Valiant Hearts: The Great War.
Last month Bandai Namco announced DLC for the title with a portion of proceeds going to the War Child charity, which helps children impacted by war.
