Today Ninja Theory released a video of Hellblade Director Tameem Antoniades' talk at DICE 2014, and he dropped a very interesting detail about the old and glorious Heavenly Sword, a sequel of which many would still like to see.
PLEASE GIVE US A SEQUEL PLEEEEAAASSEEEEEE!!
The game was so underrated. A sequel would be amazing if they could keep it to the same standard. One of those games that I just bought on the off chance as I seen it in the essential collection in a shop for £12 & it was one of the biggest surprises I've ever had in my 30 years of gaming.
The game was absolutely amazing and gorgeous. It had if flaws, of course, but nothing major and nothing that couldn't be fixed in sequel. Just look how impressive they improved Uncharted in Uncharted 2. The same could be done to Heavenly Sword. Sony should get a deal with Ninja Theory, or give the IP to Santa Monica and start working with it. That game alone, it's much worth it than the majority that do get two or more sequels.
i dont think it was underrated too much. i loved it and thought it was pretty decent. others complained about the length of time it took to complete the game. it just came out at the time that games couldnt be that short.
Well, there's Hellblade coming out soon..
This^^^^ Hellblade is definitely on my radar.
Reviewers trashed the game for its length when it was released but it is a good game. The combat can be simple but allows folks with a bit more manual dexterity to get quite technical with the combat. This is a game that deserves a proper sequel on ps4.
i can actually use this news for my university project ^3^ ty n4g <3
You're welcome :D If it helps Andy Serkis (Gollum) was Dramatic Director for the game, and played King Bohan.
i thought king bohan was the gollum. i did think andy serkis performance was brilliant in heavenly sword. but all i could think about was gollum and i don't nomrally notice these things that much.
Andy Serkis did a fantastic job directing those scenes. It's a shame the movie was so bad. :/
yeah it barely as that great directing in it.
Tameem Antoniades... I only know that name because he ruined dante by making him look more like himself and of course ruining my most beloved hack and slash games.
I have an extreme dislike for him as well, not for the Dante thing per se. Just the way he treated fans of the franchise.
Heavenly Sword PS4 remaster would be a great option to revive this IP because this game really as some great characters and art direction not to mention the cool combat mechanics. edit: Playing H.Sword with DS4 feels great you guys should try it out.
cool. Andy Serkis is a awesome motion capture actor. I can't think of anyone better to represent motion capture.
he does a good performance, but at the end of they day its gollum. its like he doesnt want to give up that rol.
What? I disagree... He won a bunch awards and was nominated for his work in Planet of the Apes, King Kong and LOTR etc... Not to mention his work in HS and Enslaved. Giving him only credit for Gollum is wrong.
HS was one of the first games i bought along with Uncharted. both blew my mind away. such underrated both games were.. but now uncharted is the most wanted series. HS would have been the same had not the devs decided to make some other games.
