Man.. its amazing how many games Sony has cancelled (but maybe this is still on?)

Anyways, great looking concept art.

Also I do not think that Ninja Theory are the devs to ask... did they not have a fall out with Sony? (maybe I am wrong).

But who knows... would be great if some Japanese dev took their hand at it.

They didn't really have a fall out with Sony, its more like they bad mouthed the sales of Heavenly Sword repeatedly...

It was such a fantastic and underrated game, I would have been upset too. It was just too early in the console cycle. I personally like it a good deal better than the GOW series.

oh the irony. HS ended up selling more than Enslaved on the PS3 and 360 combined

I wouldn't call it a fallout. Sony owns the IP and Ninja Theory wanted to do their own thing after it. Ultimately the title was successful, but not as successful as it needed to be for either side to be really happy with it. NJ sure whined, bitched and moaned post-launch though. I can't imagine Sony would be in any rush to contract them again.

Considering where God of War is right now.. so god damn played out and in need of a break.. it may be a good time to consider a return for Nariko. I think Santa Monica is the obvious place for that to happen. It just can't happen while a God of War game is currently in production and in need of a marketing budget.

Sucker Punch could handle coding duties...if they made it more open world/sand box (to a degree) like Infamous series...I would explode with joy!!

Great cutscenes don,t make great games.
I personally found the controls lacking deph and the game was way to short.

To illustrate just how capable the PS3 was in its early life cycle...the original HS still looks great to date!

If this is 'ON' I would very much like it if Sony re-issued Heavenly Sword with Full Trophy support prior to releasing HS2.

*I kept hold of my Original copy, and lack of Trophy support is the only reason I have not returned to it....

How long could it possibly take to put in trophies?
Forbidden_Darkness  +   821d ago
Well they would have to make the art assets for the trophies, than make a patch with those trophies and than submit it to Sony for approval.. So, it would take a good little while and they really have to reason to it.

i hope they make a new one

I'm very curious as to who will get this game. At the same time I am very curious to see how Naughty Dog would handle an action title of this type.

A sequel would be great but the game's mechanics would need tweaking.

@ Lord Sloth
Heavenly Sword with the combat mechanics of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning would be a truly awesome proposition.

This...game....must...happen! I will literally jizz in my pants if it's announced.

Question. Does Heavenly Sword have trophy support? I have yet to pick up that title.

It does not but it's still a pretty good game and has held up well for it's age. If you like GOW then you would probably like this game.

the first game had problems but always thought the NT could of turned it into an Uncharted 2, where it just blew the first one away. the template was there for something really good

I really enjoyed my time with Heavenly Sword. Was a great early PS3 game and I would love to see trophies added (despite how unlikely this is). A sequel would be a must buy for me.

Cant they re-release it again now the install base is there.
Nawert  +   821d ago
I will buy it Sony!

Disagree with my question lol. Thanks guys for the answer.
