Namco Bandai have announced an original adventure game titled Majin: the Fallen Realm for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The title is due for early 2010, most likely February 2010.
From Japanese developer Game Republic, this third-person action adventure follows a young thief and his giant pet rock monster, the titular Majin, on an epic fantasy journey. More specifically, both characters will have to work cooperatively with you controlling the thief and the Majin being AI-controlled. Similar to the cooperative gameplay in games like ICO and The Last Guardian, the art style looks similar to those games as well.
