Gameguru "The company also promises numerous high profile games to hit E3 and we may have been able to stumble across another high profile sequel."
YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS This would be an EPIC announcement for me i love HS. i hope Nariko makes a Comeback as the main portagonist again... BTW..i know the end of HS...
one of the most underrated games I have ever played. It was just short but really was great. The whole game sets you up for the last boss fight and it was just epic!
the press killed Heavenly Sword... with KZ2 they tried but KZ2 was just too big to be swept under the rug. and look KZ3 had the whole media buzzing... best part is, no one is even pointing a finger saying "must be a CG". the media learnt that the hard way. ha ha ha.. but yeah.. no one can stop HS2. i would love to see it come out! it's certainly one of my best! plus.. i want one for voting option that says - "I want it to be true."
Well that would be about time they realised they made a mistake skipping it in the first place.. The first one did well on the PS3.. Do not loose faith in us ;) Some just realised later.. But not too late. Wow I'm not even drunk, yet.. :b But hey make it a PS3 exclusive! ;) Oh well it's ok if the box gets it too.. But lets see what happpens.
That sounds like a spoiler Kain81... Either way, I hope this game is shown at E3!
IF and IF they are make a new HS it will have a new main character the sword is what will remain but given different abilities i love the first, was the second game i bought for my PS3 (ninja gaiden first). but her story concluded lets see the sword in a different time period.
you know its a video game and not real right they can do what ever they want to bring her back
Loved Heavenly Sword but more ridiculous assumptions from fly by night websites. For the love of gaming at least base the guess on a shred of something tangible...anything. Instead sites like this look like the boy who cried wolf. If Lauren Pears had a major role in the first Heavenly Sword and had left Ninja Studios for Sony shortly after the split even that small scrap of info would at least lend a splinter of credibility to an otherwise outlandish deduction.
I rather wanna know the back story of the first owner of the sword.
didn't you see those 5 mini animation movies talking about how Heavenly Sword originated? or did you miss it?
Heavenly Sword is still my favorite PS3 title. This game was really underrated and deserved a sequel a long time ago.
Not sure how they asummed that it is Heavly Sword? it could be anything
but i would love to see it... i really enjoyed the KungFu story of the first one
lol while I'd love another HS. I dont wanna see nariko come back (even though I love the her as a character and her sister). I want to see the 'real' weilder come into play now. They kept talking about the chosen one.. how about they finally get there? :D Esp. since I dont expect this or HS3. I want them to wrap it up w/o leaving us hanging whether we'll get another sequel after HS2. (I sure hope they do HS2!)
Just the thought of this makes me cream!! Heavenly sword is/has always been/will always be the best game on ps3. Understated game of the decade!!!!!!
that would be cool
Then Sony never cease to amaze me.
The Original was vastly underrated, a sequel would be great news.
euh... this is only some bs speculation. Kind of article that hiphopgamer would do...
Thank you for keeping a level head.
I absolutely loved the original. So it is no doubt I would love to see a sequel to it. Many people bashed it for length, but I felt it was one of the best stories told this gen. The story and characters were fantastic, not to mention the gameplay as well.
Don't take Heavenly Sword's game length bashing to heart. The media and fanboys were in the kick of bashing the PS3 at the time for every little thing. I played Heavenly Sword and the length is just fine. It doesn't have online and the game industry seems to think that the heart in gaming means having online for everything. God of War and God of War II are about the same length on PS2 and no one complained. They praise those titles and hold them up to epic status.
That's one thing that has bothered me. People seem to want to bash games lately based on what system they are on. Thing is that I play a game for enjoyment, regardless of what system. I still remember when the PS3 launched everything that came out was criticized in some way or form, it was ridiculous. As for multiplayer, the game never needed it. I have always been someone who enjoys a strong single player over multiplayer any day. I feel that multiplayer has almost become a drain on gaming today at times. I know I may get disagrees for that. But I am from the era where there was quality and typically strong single player for a game to be good. Not a short single player that was tacked on, with a multiplayer that was focused on.
I agree with everything you said for the most part. For some reason though I've been getting picky about the systems I play them on. This started to happen last generation with the Xbox/PS2/Cube. The video game industry is starting to interrupt my gaming enjoyment by controlling the video games and their access depending on what system they are on. For example, last gen I owned all three consoles and started to prefer the Xbox versions to most video games. However, my launch Xbox broke and I got a replacement 2 years later under warranty at the store. Unfortunately, Microsoft was using 3 manufactures for their laser drives and were randomly installing them in units. Come to find out that my replacement couldn't read CD-R discs with all my music on them. So custom soundtracks couldn't work. This gen has gotten worse mainly because of controlling our gaming through online. Games need to be activated, backups aren't reliable, and the terms and conditions are blocking my freedom to play. If they would just leave me alone I would not care so much which console it was on. Up until the "other OS" removal the PS3 was the pick for me but now it's getting like Microsoft. If you don't know what I'm talking about regarding software control just wait until this generation is over and see if any of your games work, especially those that are DLC or digital download titles.
I hope they make the game longer and add more replay value if this is true.
with proof not random HHG statements..The person concerned works at SCEE and SCEE had been put incharge of Heavenly Sword 2 after Sony's tiff with Ninja Theory...
Guess it's time to beat the last boss from HS. I'm still stuck on this mofo since 2007, haven't even tried to beat him recently.
More Kai plz, thx.
Hope to see Heavenly Sword 2 soon!
I don't think so. They weren't confident in the first Heavenly Sword at all and thought it would sell disasterously, then announced that they're never doing a sequel for the game. They came off, to me, as a company that didn't believe in what they created or the platform that they made it on (PS3 was selling badly back then) and then announced that they'd be making multiplatform games. It's what separates them from a company like Insomniac in my eyes. Oh, and their game sold well over 1mil copies.... It'd be great if a sequel does come up, but I really wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't. I really want one because I bought and enjoyed the first, too. EDIT: Unless a different studio works on it. If that happens, I want Santa Monica on that, STAT!
It's one of those games that I liked but didn't get much attention from the masses. It had an interesting story and it was fun to play. It is unfortunate that it was released when the PS3 was still in it's infancy. Sales weren't that high due to the install base and I think the developers took that as a fail on their part. I believe that Heavenly Sword has enough foundation to make a great franchise. If the developers look a bit harder and see that most great games in the early PS3 days struggled, like Uncharted, then maybe they will see that releasing a sequel now would be more beneficial. I hope E3 announces a sequel but I think this developer said they were working on something else.
Please let this be true, Heavenly Sword was EPIC and words cannot describe it. If you have not done so please go buy it and play it.
PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAA SSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Let this be true! I loved the first one and have been looking forward to another one to be made. If this is true, 2011-2012 is going to be very great years to be a PS3 owner. It just keeps on getting better and better.
It's possible, but I don't think a HS2 is probable. I'd be stoked if it were announced, though. Just throw in a friggin block button this time.
Sequel? Yes. Multiplatform? Definitely.
Only if Sony wants to make it a PS3 & PSP release. Sony owns the Heavenly Sword IP.
Lets get this game underway SCEE!!!!
Simply one of the most underated games of all time.
i hope its true and actually.. i hope nariko stays dead.. the true main character is the sword.. i could see her in a cameo if they did a prequel or as a reference in a sequel but for the purpose of continuity they should keep her dead great game, one of my favorites this gen.. oooohhhh motion controls for twing twang
Heavenly Sword was a criminally underrated game, and is more than deserving of a sequel. Maybe even a prequel of sorts, so that the original cast can return in the game. But as morganfell said, this is just BS speculation. There isn't anything remotely associated with Heavenly Sword mentioned in the article. As much as I would love to see the franchise continue, I wouldn't put too much hope in this - at least not based on this article.
A heavenly sword sequel (or prequel if they want more Nariko) would be awesome. sony won't let their IP go to waste, especially after the sucess of GOWIII. Sony should hand over development of HS2 to Sony Santa Monica... that would be AWESOME!!!! I understand a new studio like Ninja Theory, and the pressures of development, their new game however seems abit close to HS, and it does not look like they are really innovation. Anyone else notice how similar the lead character of enslaved is to Nariko? http://namcobandaipartners.... http://spawnio.com/wp-conte...
please let this be true!!!
about 1.4 million copies worldwide. I'd say that's better than initially thought. Enough to warrant a sequel considering it being a new IP.
Please make the sequel ....
I played the first heavenly sword at my friend´s house. I loved it. When I get a ps3 I will be sure to get this game. Great news. PS3 is printing games. Someone should make one of those Pictures like the Nintedo one with prints money. =D dear god , One game after the other ; BAM BAM BAM!!! My wallet will hurt =(
Heavenly Sword is one of the most beautiful games on the PS3 still today and I will never forget how epic was this game for me. I would hate to compare it but in terms of excitement HS was more epic to me at the time I played it then GoW3 was for me on this march/2010 when I played/plat trophy it. Can't wait to see a heavenly Sword 2 beeing announcement ! I still can't belive that this game did not win GotY ....
Well this does not make any since. Ninja theory is working on enslaved. so unless if heavenly sword 2 is made by different company then I would believe it there will be a sequel.
if they are making a 2 heavenly sword, i hope kai is in it lol she was so cute and awesome in the first one XP
make me buy the first one, I missed this game as i bought my ps3 in xmas 2008, looks pretty awesome
Well after reading the article.. It really fails to connect the dots that this will be Heavenly Sword 2, it just says 'core gamer 3rd person action/combat title' That could be syphon filter, it could be something completely new that never makes the light of day; we really don't know. It very well could have been getaway 2 or eight days. It just says unannounced. It's quite a leap in logic to assume it's heavenly sword 2.
I've been trying to get Heavenly Sword for a minute (a while) now. I believe that game was very underrated whn it first came out just because ppl didn't like the PS3's launch price.
heavenly sword was kickass. Even though the sixaxis is a after thought now in ps3 games. There was nothing more fun than using it to get kai to shoot arrows in peoples faces. Or using it to shoot canonballs at hundreds of on screen enemies. In fact i have yet to see another game that has that many enemies on screen with those graphics without a single hitch in framerate. Bring back kai! I want to shoot arrows in people faces! hell i might pop in heavenly sword in my ps3 when i get home lol.
I would like to see a Heavenly Sword 2. I wonder who would be the main character? I also think it would be cool if Sony was to make a PSP version of Heavenly Sword too. I also think it would be cool. If Sony was to make Ninja Theory a first party studio. I could see some neat things come out of that if Sony did buy Ninja Theory. I wonder what the game is. I hope Sony will announce the game soon. If it is not Heavenly Sword 2. I hope for Eight Days, Getaway 3 or hardware online arena 2. That being said I hope the game will be be HS2. Because I want to know what happens in the story next.
never got to play it but then again i dont want to pay $60 for a old game.
Ninja Theory and Sony had some serious disagreements, and that's why they never did a sequel in the first place. Although I'd love to hear Anna Torv again, she's so awesome in FRINGE.
all my gaming dreams has come true like lbp2 kz3 motor storm 3 uncharted 3 .... so i think heavenly sword 2 will be in our hands at 2011 .sony really gives its fans what they want
The Heavenly Sword Engine is a great engine. Heavenly Sword released in 2007 looks better than 90% of games released to date. I look forward to playing Heavenly Sword 2 whenever it comes out...if it comes out.
Please, Please, Please let this be true!!!!!
