Could Heavenly Sword Cut a Pose on the PS4?

Push Square: "Among the excitement for Ratchet & Clank’s big screen debut, the announcement of Heavenly Sword’s cinematic adaption sort of got lost in the shuffle. The flick was backhandedly referenced in a Variety article, noting that production outfit Blockade Entertainment would produce the movie and distribute it in a direct-to-video format. But even though the series isn’t getting the same theatrical treatment as its more marketable first-party counterpart, doesn’t it strike you as surprising that the historical series is making a comeback at all?"

i dont see why not... i think its a possibility.

Waste of time. Heavenly Sword was a bad game just like everything else that Ninja Theory makes, and God of War absolutely blows it out of the water in every way.

Nodoze1249d ago

Yes, but in this case the stink of Ninja Theory would not be on the game. It would be done without them (Sony owns the franchise).

So how about we give this title to Sony Santa Monica??

darren_poolies1248d ago

Heavenly Sword was great as was Enslaved and Devil May Cry.

Ultr1248d ago

heavenly Sword had a great story, and loveable characters, beautiful environements it lacked in the gameplay departement. nothing else

Imagine a reveal at e3 as a ps4 launch title!!

Also sony is throwing MS off.

Ps4 will be revealed to have 10gb grrd5 ram.

Isn't ps4 now labeled as prototype hardware?

I don't know what MS will show but I expect sony to clean house with games core games for core gamers.

We haven't even seen ND next gen game yet.

Well i think its Ninja Theory dont you find it strange that Tameem Andonlades, was in the developer reel video of the PS4. When he has been pretty much bashing heavenly sword and its sales etc.

Same for Ready at Dawn why have a PSP dev with not as much console developer experience like Guerrila,Media Molecule,Suckerpunch etc to talk about your system. Its because they are working on a PS4 exclsuive.

Same for the choice of having the Harmonix CEO in the video, when their last 3 games have been exclusive to 360.

Why have Stig Asmussen in the video when Todd Pappy directed god of war:A. We havent heard of him since the launch of God of war 3, its because he is making a new IP for PS4.

Why have Kazunori Yamauchi in it? Because GT6 will be a dual generation release, i dont believe the ps3 only rumours.

I could be over thinking this, i just find it incredibly strange.

MariaHelFutura1249d ago

I noticed that aswell. Ready At Dawn would be great also, they deserve it.

yoshiroaka1249d ago

HMMM! I like your conspiracies friend!

But they also confirmed that their engine is a multiplatform engine. Its definitely a new IP, as for NT, I, pretty sure They signed with Sony since neither Capcom or Namco Banda I are working with them, Capcom is moving back to in-house development and Namco wasn't pleased by the lack luster sales of Enslaved. And I'm pretty sure MS wants nothing to do with them because of how well Ragdoll kung-fu performed on the original Xbox.

In any case while many may dislike NT.. I only dislike Tameem, as the current head he paints the developer studio negatively, When Nina KristensenRan the company Tameem was only a writer. But she left for Ubisoft in 2008 when HS2 was in production, and Tameem took over and that's when the company had a fall out with Sony because they bitched HS didn't sell well, while the game went on to sell 1.5 million.

I guess They must have pitched something to Sony and Sony saw it as a way to bring them back into the fold, it'll be interesting to see.

VonBraunschweigg1249d ago

Make HS2 for PS4 and forget about movies. Want to make an action flick, use inFamous.

Hicken1249d ago

inFamous would make for a GREAT movie. And best of all, it lends itself so well that it's hard to screw up.

1Victor1248d ago

M night shamalan and owen bowl would disagree with you Hicken "plot twist"

OhMyGandhi1249d ago

Sure.
The first heavenly sword was highly underrated. a damned fun, albeit short game with spectacular graphics, buttery smooth swordplay, and Andy Serkis as the antagonist. It more then deserves a shot at a sequel.
