AMHNetwork has spotted a sneaky tweet from Heavenly Sword & DmC developer Ninja Theory and theorise that a it could mean a Heavenly Sword sequel is on the way
I would love to see heavenly sword 2 on ps4 but wouldn't be multiplat like in the tag here sony own the ip and would be awesome if sant monica worked on heavenly sword 2 . I was impressed what they did with god of war 3 .
Yeah would be nice to see Heavenly Sword 2, sadly I expect DmC2.
i think HS2 could end up being good if they correct some problems from number 1 that had potential but kind of bored me some times. I unfortunately don't think HS2 will be their next game because i remember Ninja Theory relations with Sony haven't been that well after HS release so if HS2 sees the light of the day it will be with another studio on the lead. I wish they make a next gen DmC i enjoyed the reboot!
I expect DmC2 as well, although I'm not sad about it. It was a very good game in my humble opinion and I can't wait for the next one.
@Buljo Sadly DmC did not do well so there won't be a sequel despite it actually having fluid combat and fun gameplay
@mgszelda1 Seriously? :O I really didn't know that it was a sales failure. Of all the Capcom games DMC was probably the best.
DMC did well, sold like 4 million copies, the problem was that the sales target must have been like 6 millions...thats crazy.
@cemelk Where did you get those numbers? DMC sold less than 1.2m copies across 3 platforms. DMC 4 sold 4m+. Ninja Theory has never sold over 2m and heavenly Sword is their highest selling game at 1.5m only on PS3.
The one thing I'd give credit to NT is that they know how to create cool worlds and great character (excluding Dante and Virgil of course). Loved Trip and Monkey, as well as all the HS characters.... Especially the bosses of Heavenly Sword like flying fox and King Bohan. It's a shame they stink at combat. I wish they would outsource combat to Platinum. It's like they are opposite studios. Hate everything about platinum's game aside from the combat.
@InTheLab My bad i got them confused, the one that sold more than 4 million is Devil may cry 4 and since the sales where 'lackbuster' acording to capcom, they greenlighted DMC.
"@ahmedashori I can't say exactly when, but you'll see something in the next few months." How does this reply make the author immediately jump to a Heavenly Sword possibility? There's no hint whatsoever that they are even considering a sequel/prequel. I'm sure whatever they make will be action-packed and fun but I wish these misleading titles would just stop.
H sword 2 is coming; the first hint was when the devs did a promo for the PS4 for it's intro in e3 a couple of years ago.
Flip every single hate! Give me DmC 2 I don't have any man crushes. I wanna see what happens more in this story Give it a good year our two time skip so many possibilities. Heavenly Sword 2 indeed does deserve a proper sequel though. Both would be amazing.
I would buy Heavenly Sword 2 from Ninja Theory in a heartbeat, but nothing in their tweet hints at Heavenly Sword.
really heavenly sword didn't do as well as it should have solely because it got put in as a new ip when the ps3 was still selling at 600.00. I bout it day one and still own it as I loved it for what it was. Most people around this time was either doing the 360 gig so never really saw the game for what it was and to me it was flawless. People tend to expect more then what is reasonable. Another thing is the lead character was not a man and many people guys mostly scrutinized it because of that. Their could always be improvements but as you say this would be a day one purchase for me for sure.
I like hack n slash games and HS was quite a great one in its time, a sequel would be welcome.
Heavenly Sword was gorgeous and Nariko was breathtaking graphically and in gameplay. But the writing was the best out of everything I played last gen.
Please no DMC sequel Please no DMC sequel Please no DMC sequel Please no DMC sequel Please no DMC sequel Please no DMC sequel Please no DMC sequel Compared to the other games, DMC was bad. I didn't like it. I think it needs to be japanese developed. These guys should create a new IP
DmC =/= DMC
Meh, I know what you mean Thanatos but I call the original Devil May Cry by it's title so DMC=DmC to me.
NT can do whatever they want... just not another Devil May Cry.
it is heavenly sword 2, reveal at gamescom
FFS I hope so, its a disgrace that there hasnt been a HS2.
This game would be exclusive for Sony platforms, and i never played the first game, sadly. I really liked Enslaved, the game is so underrated.
You need to play heavenly sword its such a great game.
You can pick up Heavenly Sword for about $5.00 at Gamestop in their bargain bins. It is a fantastic game.
One of the best games that came out early on PS3. Graphically it was amazing. It was my first PS3 game along with Uncharted 1. It's little short but since it's cheaper you won't complain about the game length.
I think their reading a lot into this. Other than that film Heavenly sword, I don't see anything to indicate a sequel coming out soon. It would be great, because I love the character. I hope the film doesn't kill it for me.
Yeah, that title is very misleading once you read the tweet. Nariko it's one of my favorite female protagonists in gaming. With the upcoming film I would like to see a sequel and not a reboot. NT did some good stuff with dmc however I still much prefer Heavenly Sword.
Please!! For the love of god, make it so!
For all those people that will comment without actually reading the article: The tweet in no way hints at a new Heavenly Sword, just that they're making a new game which will be announced soon. It could just as well be anything.
Long as it's not DmC2, they can make whatever they want.
Why? You afraid they'll do a good job again?
The reason people are so excited for a Heavenly Sword 2 is that Ninja Theory & Sony have been randomly dropping sporadic hints regarding a Heavenly Sword sequel for the past 6 months.
Does it matter, you know that they are just going to insult fans and think they are gods among mortals.
Really loved the first game.For the early days of ps3 this game really left its mark.Don't get me wrong it was just hack n slash but the graphics and story made up for it.Great lead character also.It doesn't officially state that a new game will be coming but a sequel to this or enslaved is certainly not a bad thing.
Somehow though I don't think Sony is gonna have them develop HS2, i'd Love if they did. But All signs point to it being a new IP, and I did some snooping through some of the developers LinkedIn profiles at NT and 2 of them confirmed that they've been working on a Top secret project that went into R&D September 2012 for a Next Gen platform, then went into full Production in Jan 2014. The Creative Director for the Project is Rahni Tuker and she's been the Creative director since Jan This year and was the gameplay director for the game since Sept 2012 when the game entered Pre Production. So I have a feeling when this game is announced and it'll likely be at GamesCon she'll be there to talk about it since its been in full on production now since last year when NT's cofounder Tameem was present at the PS4 reveal and spoke in the Developer Video for PS4. I have a strong feeling this game will be KILL STRAIN, that was Trademarked back in April This year but was strangely absent at E3 with the other 3 games that were trademarked in April that were announced, Bloodborne, Guns Up and Entwined.
Although I'm not that big of a Ninja Theory fan, I do respect them for creating pretty good character action games. They are probably the only other dev I trust with that genre besides Platinum Games and Team Ninja of course.
DMC by these guys was definitely the best DMC I've ever played (IMO).. I would totally shit myself if they finally announced DMC2
No, DmC failed. Get over it.
Well the good thing about opinions is that everyone has one ;) Btw it was one of the best reviewed games of last year and its a more Acknowledged franchise compared to Heavenly Sword. @MightyNoX it reviewed a 9 out of 10 how can that be worse ? Was every other game a 10 ? An btw DMC sold well over its initial target so im confused... can plz post a link to were capcom said it was a failure plz ?
For you maybe.. but I loved it :)
You're confused ? They kept revising the "initial target" before and after release . It didnt sell well at all for the franchise and the noise it made. The game is in no way a success (i dont think anyone even claimed more than 1 million on 3 combined platforms). For a while the Devil May Cry Collection was even doing better saleswise . Everything you heard beyond that is expected PR damage control or from the fans . And i dont think you should expect anyone disliking any game , to care that it got a 8 or 9 in reviews . Especially when it was obvious some of the reviewers didnt even really know the Devil May Cry franchise . Just search online , we shouldnt even be having this powderkeg debate again , either fans or "haters" .
Playing it at the moment, it's a very good take on what was a tired series. I also loved Heavenly Sword, and enjoyed Kung Fu Chaos. I have Enslaved downloaded ready to go when I get round to it. They're a talented studio, I look forward to seeing what they do next.
DmC sold 1.5-2 million before coming to free to PS+ just 9 months after. Capcom revised the sales figures for not just DMC but for quite a few of their games because performance of their software was facing stiff competition. RE:ORC was initially supposed to sell 5 million units, and after reviews came in the game sold 1.5 million units and they revised they figures to reflect it. They wanted RE6 to sell 7 million and it sold 4.5 initially before they revised it, and it later went on to sell 8 million units. They wanted DmC to sell 5 million, then they revised it to 2 million and then they revised it again to 1 million, the game sold 500k in the first month and then later on sold 1.5 million in 2 months following the release and crossed the 2 million mark when the Virgil DLC was released in March that year. The vehement hate for that game is seriously laughable and silly. Its not only a great game but an excellent action game that was far more cohesive and thought out than the other games in the series... I only hope that Capcom allows them the opportunity to create DmC2, because it was by far NT's best game and a great reentry to the DmC series. I understand the redesign in the character may be off putting but beyond the cosmetic changes and rewrites to the story the game really was great and the story had a sense of purpose to it and things didn't feel so disjointed from a narrative point of view. And while the combat may not have been as insane as DMC3 It was excellent, tight and solid and wasn't too far from the DMC formula. it doesn't seem as if Capcom is doing western Partnerships anymore with the renewed focus to developing all their IPs internally, But The thought of a very cinematic and even more polished DmC2 running on PS4 with UE4/Panta Rhei at 60 FPS is just mind blowing and Capcom would be damn stupid if they let a minute vocal few dictate what is widely regarded by the industry and journalists as a great game. They should definitely foster a relationship with NT regardless of how cocky and prickish Tameem is. That franchise shouldn't die. the reboot was a step in the right direct. Refocused on Story and proper character development and Great solid combat to go along with it.
I've played them all. Here comes my opinion....are you read? I LOVED their take on Dante. I liked his look, his attitude, and his style. I thought it was an awesome revisioning of the franchise and I LOVED the boss battles. Some of the more creative battles I've played. That's just me. I thought it was just AS GOOD as all the other Devil May Cry games. After playing it, I recommended it to all of my friends. Yep....sure did. I like Ninja Theory a lot. I hope they make a HS2 and they keep up the good work.
BillMadeaGate: DmC did not fail because derpy derpy derpy derpy deeeepry aroo? That's an opinion. ShockUltraslash: DMC failed because Capcom called it a failure. That's a fact. Edit: Still reviewed worse than its previous entries and sold worse. Money talks. It failed. Get over it. :)
I enjoyed it, not as much as previous entries but still was a good game imo, I'd like to see Dmc2
Reviewed by 'professional' game reviewers that know nothing about games. Just because 'professional' reviewers gave it good scores it suddenly becomes good. Hmm, COD comes to mind. Did you see any user reviews that talk in depth about the game exposing the game's true color?
Ya know? I liked their DMC. However, calling it the best DMC is one of the most insulting things I've ever read. I know we all have opinions, but come on.
Looks like they just shown a pic of their past works. Don't mean they're making a new Heavenly Sword. I think Sony will bring the game back but I don't think Ninja Theory will make it. I'd like to see Santa Monica or Ready at Dawn make it with the GOW engine.
"Looks like they just shown a pic of their past works. Don't mean they're making a new Heavenly Sword." Thats just the preview image and has nothing to do with the tease. The tease is just that they mentioned a new game will be revealed soon (does within "the next few months" really count as news?) and the author figured it might relate to the HS movie and nothing more.
Heavenly Sword 2? HELL YES MAKE IT HAPPEN loved the 1st game shame it never got a sequel would be perfect to fill the spot of god of war, which we all agree santa monica should stop making. Gow had its time time to give him a rest.
Anything but DmC2 would be appreciated.
Nothing to suggest it's Heavenly Sword 2, the obvious prediction would be DmC 2, it's multiplat and frankly the better game.
Ok it may be a longer game but as for better............ youve got to be kidding me. I downloaded dmc on ps+ and it was not that entertaining.
I would love Heavenly Sword 2...but the guy didn't really say anything :/
I really liked ninja theroys DMC it wasn't as good as the first or 3rd but was better than the second the only part of the game i didnt like was the office tower block part that was boring. But i would much rather a heavenly sword 2 the first one was surprisingly good i remember when i first got ps3 and thought well this game is gonna be crappy but it was great. I remember that exact same thing when i got the 1st uncharted and boy was i wrong fantastic games.
Kind of jumping the gun... considering you reach that conclusion based on Gamscom being in EU. I personally would love a new IP
yeah we all want new ip but i would rather them put out nothing but new ip's then how would you like not having something for 7 plus months. I bet you would either give up gaming or change your tune. New ideas don't always show up out of the blue and take much time and effort and sometimes doing something new is not always welcomed because people like you find ways to complain. Sorry for the rant but I get tired of reading people complaining about new ip's.
Talk about putting words in my mouth and coming to false conclusions based on speculation pulled from nothing... The internet /facepalm
Gonna go ahead and hit "WTF?" and "No" on this site before they can pull this crap again. What a waste of time.
I will be severely disappointed if it's DmC2. They flatout disrespected the DMC fans of old and Capcom was behind them while they were doing it. This is why DmC flopped.
capcom wont allow it the series died after the excelent 3rd game for me.
It was Capcom's idea to reboot AND to have a new Dante. That was out of Ninja Theory's hands. They wanted to make Devil May Cry 5.
I suppose one could reasonably expect a tie in with the film. But then that's nothing but speculation.
Please...Heavenly Sword...I offer my soul in exchange..
A new IP would be nice.
I'm hoping that this is a case of the stars aligning. Fingers are tightly crossed, I love the studios work on DmC and Enslaved but in particular Heavenly Sword. I'm sure it is a sheer coincidence, but knowing Sony's recent form, and the fact that commercially (not critically) DmC and Enslaved both flopped, there's a chance Sony may come calling for Ninja Theory again. Get Sony's muscle behind it, with the rabid fanbase the game has built and it could really fire for PS4
