Heavenly Sword Movie Points to Likely (Once Was) Video Game Sequel on PS4

VG Republic Writes: Sony has no issues when it comes to exclusive titles, with a number of games that most companies salivate to replicate. They have so many that one of the more popular early exclusives released in 2007, Heavenly Sword, has been allowed to lay dormant... until now. An animated movie has crept on to the scene, first reported by Eurogamer, of Nariko's story that will be a Direct-To-DVD release being published by Blockade aside the upcoming theatrical release of Ratchet and Clank. Why after six years though are we seeing our first sightings of Nariko, especially after Ninja Theory scrapped their sequel to the original to work on their remake of the Devil May Cry Series, DmC? The timing of the announcement for the Heavenly Sword movie is perplexing but the greater thought process beyond producing a movie that hasn't seen a game release since 2007 points, likely, to the fact that the Heavenly Sword sequel that once was is now looking probable for the PS4.

Heavenly Sword is an IP that has a lot of potential, it just needs to separate itself from feeling like God of War in various ways. I bet on the PS4 they can do a lot more with the game's design and gameplay, making it a unique experience that does a lot of things that God of War doesnt.

Im hoping though that Sony gets people re-interested in the series by porting Heavenly Sword to PS Vita with Trophy support and bonus content like new modes and missions

The game had great acting, and for an early PS3 title it did a fantastic job of creating a cinematic experience. The gameplay was a bit hollow, hack, slash and steering weapons with sixaxis was about all they had to offer, but it was still a great title. I definitely would like to see a sequel where more variety is put into the gameplay elements.

Just like the Ratchet and Clank movie, I suspect the game to come soon before or after the movie.

I had a lot of fun playing Heavenly Sword. It does feel a little like God of War, but I think we can all agree this character is so much hotter. Also, I had a ton of fun steering the arrows and cannons. This game was so beautiful to see in action and is one of my favorites from the PS3.

If they create a sequel it would be a must buy for me, and from some of the comments I have read from people being burnt out on playing God of War maybe a new look is the change of pace they need. The way she moves as she obliterates thousands of enemies at the same time was just epic.

If you like my post or agree please bubble me. I like to share my thoughts and three bubbles is just not enough.
Sorry for begging.

I'm sorry but I have to disagree. The worst part about this game was the fact that there was the use of six axis in things such as steering the arrows and cannons. Thankfully they gave you the option to turn that off, otherwise I probably would of never finished the game.

Santa Monica would take over this series for sure..

Heavenly Sword 2....escaping hell like NT's original sequel idea would be amazing

Having it open world aswell would separate it's self from God of War more.

Nariko has to come back....but they better not use that god awful voice actress from Playstation All Stars.
