"At least we presume the artwork is for a Heavenly Sword sequel, since Ninja Theory has stated that it is a three game series. Have a gander at the High-res artwork after the jump."
Nice find Deep! First pic very metropolitan!
First game was very underrated - i've always said that. One of the most beautiful games out there.
Yes if they just learn their lesson and make it a tad longer, that would be great. It was a beautiful game.
The first game was a true beauty. If this is heavenly sword, maybe it will be set in a distant future from the first one, dunno maybe one thousand years after the second heavenly sword war the sword appear again on earth or something really cool like that.
So they (Ripten) took the images used in the banner on Ninja Theory site and put their logo on it? Scum.
NICE FIND Deep! Those pics looks AWSOME! .
I don't think this is a sequel to heavenly sword but an entirely new game.
Ninja Theory would have stated that it's a sequel, they just said "It’ll take all the things we loved about Heavenly Sword and make them bigger and better than ever before."
That doesn't mean it's a sequel, either way concept art looks very promising.
Day one buy for me. I love the original Heavenly Sword, and it my favorite next gen game so far.
of all time. These pics look great and beg the question: What in the world will be the storyline of this one? Great find deep.
More pleeeeeeeeeeeeeze!!! :)
I wonder when the sequel will be released? late 08? or early 09? Who knows.
WOW, this is very ssshmexican...
Thats all concept art right?
Look kinda futuristic too me to be a Heavenly Sword game... but how knows ^__^. But still look very impressive.
coolie wonder if its ps3 only
this does look a little futuristic tho? like there could be a time skip or something...
i hope it is the sequal to heavenly sword oved the first game. maybe its set in the future or could be something totally different.
Totally what I was thinking, I hope so. Hopefully Nariko will come back or at least the sword survives and Kai's or her ancestors wield it.
why would a heavenly sword sequel be in a futuristic metropolis?
its most likely a new series (hopefully a PS3 exclusive)
well who knows, but if it is its going to be awesome... kai is all grown up and using a much better bow and stuff.
did Heavenly Sword want to be the Matrix
Whatever it is, it looks awesome. Great art design. To me some of the photos don't seem to fit Heavenly Sword, but who knows. The first one was completely underrated. Mostly due to the length of the game.
This looks like it could be for something different too. I don't want to get my hopes up too soon.
reminds me of star wars....
Please don't let it be an apocalyptic future I'm getting so tired of that theme
I'm hedging bets from what I've heard... Xbox 360 game, folks... Don't quote me. Just kinda what I suspect is all.
what makes you say that?
LEt me rephrase...
I don't "THINK" this is going to be a PS3 exclusive. We'll find out a "bit" more on Thursday.
I hope they talk about this at GDC.
The first game was published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe....
Looking forward to it.
If the visuals and gameplay is anything like the first one I will be pleased. Most important thing I reckon they need to do is to make it longer this time.
Either way, I'm dying to see what this is.
But where do they mention that it's Heavenly Sword's sequel? Some sites can't get enough with the sensationalist speculations.
if it takes place in the future then I am definitely interested, and will probably buy it
i loved heavly sword,its one of the best games ive ever played.if you own a PS3 and havent played it.pick this game up.cant wait for part 2!NIRIKO FTW!!
The only problem with heavenly sword was that it was very short. The combat, the story, and the graphics were spot on. Come to think of it..the demo was also rediculously short. What is ninja theories obsession with short things? >_<
