Developer Salute – Ninja Theory

GI - "When Ninja Theory announced it would be taking the reins of the Devil May Cry series and it unveiled its new dark-haired Dante, the Internet collectively grabbed their keyboard-shaped pitch forks and started stabbing them into the air. I, on the other hand, got incredibly excited." (Ninja Theory, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Salute...to Ninja Theory

Your joking right, the guys who single handily ruined the dmc franchise.

The DMC franchise got ruin when DMC2 came out tbh. I do believe if Tameem had treated the fanbase better than the game might have sold more.

I remember calling the fanbase just a "noisy minority" and say he didn't care if the game sold 2,000 units or 2million.

NT should've just made Heavenly Sword 2 but oh well.

I don't know about Heavenly Sword 2... Didn't awhile back Tameem say it was Sony's "fault" for the poor sales of HS1, and refused to work with them again? :/

Not only that but the game was abysmal, who honestly wants a sequel?

Maybe NT will check their egos in the future when it comes to developing games,they're not bad developers at all.

Ninja theory are a bunch of tw@s. Especially That Tameem guy, what a self righteous D-bag.

For a 'launch' title HS1 didn't exactly get bad sales. In fact it is the best selling Ninja Theory game ever. Even with 360/PS3 sales combined for their other games.

They just expected more than the estimated 1.6 million copies sold for Heavenly Sword. But that was instead their apex.

As for Ninja Theory's skill. They are excellent game makers, their marketing not so much. They have just never had that massive commercial success they strive for yet. I'm sure if they continue it will come one day.

And I for one hope they continue to give us great gaming experiences.

I could never salute ninja theory ive played all their games and heavenly sword is tge only good one,yet they act like they are making some of the best games ever.

Heavenly sword was probably the most impressive game they made and it sold the best out of all the games they made. Enslaved was pretty good, but I never finished

People may have their personal negative opinions about NT but they did a great job with HS wish it could have been a sequel but I guess their egos prohibited that from happening,I personally enjoyed DmC loved the design & gameplay.Far as game designers & developers they're not at all bad when it comes to their craft.

Sony should bring back Heavenly Sword for the PS4.

i would love to see Heavenly Sword 2
freezola75  +   511d ago
I adore this game. That is why I give cats the blues in PSAllstars with madam Nariko.... I so love Heavenly Sword and I would love to see a resurrected series. Antoniades is kind of a douche although I truly believe that Sony could have promoted HS a lot better. Anyway... you'll know where to find me. Peace

Yes, DmC has the worst gameplay ever. Just look at these terrible slick and fluid combo videos that show off the depth of the combat that allows the players to create their own unique combos without having to rely so much on JC while also allowing classic players to play it that way.

Also, screw Ninja Theory for making the first devil may cry game that has good platforming

Also screw them for making the first devil may cry game that doesn't make us backtrack through because it has twenty unique levels, it should've been like devil may cry 4, EXTREMELY linear with fixed camera angles and then once you reach level 10, switch characters LITERALLY backtrack the EXACT same way you came fighting the same enemies and bosses who btw, have no new tactics or animations. Also screw them for bringing back unlockable costumes, unlike dmc4, also screw NT for having the first dmc game that also tells the story through gameplay by having in game dialogue making the story easier to understand and less convoluted.
