PSX Extreme - Ninja Theory didn't want to do it. They said the first game "didn't make enough money," which, at 1.5 million copies sold, is a tough pill to swallow. Supposedly, though, the sequel is in the works at an unknown studio.
My hopes, Ready at Dawn are tackling the IP, with a slightly more stylised graphical style and some POP type platforming to break up combat for variety. But definitely Ready at Dawn: I think they have proven themselves with the GoW titles on PSP.
oh god i hope ninja theory isnt in charge of it
Uhh...what? They made the the first game. If they really did suck at being developers, then we wouldnt be wanting a HS2 right now
and then they complained about sales for two years then they released enslaved and it sold less than heavnly sword did and was on two systems and then they shut up now they are doing devil my cry and totally change up the character do you really want them to do heavenly sword 2
Think I'm the only one who thought this games story was wack, but it had a few good idea's and characters i like the weirdness of kai and how innovative they was with the six axis motions controller Also you don't need to tell me the game was wrote by a professional writer that does not mean, he/she is better then anyone else just more recognized for there writing then some people. There's only a small handful of games this gen with great story's and story telling, and IMO Uncharted 2 Yakuza 3 Metal Gear Solid 4 Mass Effect 1 And InFamous 1 had great story's and Great story telling MGS 4'S was so good when it came out of a cutscene i wished it never i never wanted to play just to keep watching. now thats quiet epic lol
Yes I want Heavenly Sword 2 but to who is making it hope it's Sony Santa Monica
Been hearing all kinds of great things about it and i love epic stories so I might finally check it out. I remember it was one of the first games with an extremely long load screen to start,but Im used to it now so that isn't that big of a turn off anymore.
I think Heavenly Sword 1 is pretty under rated. The combat system had it's flaws but was pretty cool. The facial animation was good. Andy Sirkis' creative input really stood out above the usual poor production values we see in some games. Story was OK, but all the other elements helped elevate it. I hope we see a sequel.
Heavenly Sword is still one of my favorite games on PS3. It really has a good replay value (fun combat, nice story overall). Its sad it didnt meet the success it deserves.
nothing will exceed bayonetta combat i'm sure
god of war 3 and heavenly sword put bayonetta to shame .
