New Official Sony Heavenly Sword Trailer

A new trailer about Cinematic Production and the possibilities of Blu-ray has surfaced on the official European Sony site. More interestingly though is that its referent is Heavenly Sword.

The trailer features all new footage of the game, in addition to interviews with its developers at Ninja Theory and Andy Serkis on making a cinematic gaming experience.

Sony: "What is it about storage space? No matter how much you have, you always seem to use it. And the problem is, the more stuff you store, the harder it is to find what you want. In this film we explore storage from a hoarder's perspective and ask the question: if you could have more storage space, what would you do with it?"


(Note: the trailer can be viewed in HD if you follow the link)

Unofficial info from devs:

So far Heavenly Sword takes up 19gb of a blu-ray disc...with game data compression and some fmvs and audio but not all.

Most of the game footage shown is from November 2006.

The motion capture was done at Weta Digital in Wellington. Weta are known for winning awards for the three Lord of the Rings movies, I-Robot and King Kong.

The game has a stella cast...including Andy Serkis (Gollum in 'Lord of the Rings', King Kong in ...'King Kong'), Bruce Hopkins (Rohan in 'Lord of the Rings'), Race Davis (Uk Actress in 'Men Behaving Badly', 'Eastenders') and Anna Torv ('McLeod's Daughters') as Nariko.

Some Ninja's have flown out to the GDC so keep a look out.

The faces are awesome, just hope the game is more than a hack and slash with button sequences. But surely anyone can see that this is a going to be AAA. Hope it doesn't get delayed again though.

I would also like to add that this footage is so much better than the Heroes clip. Did anyone notice that the Heroes clip is taken from the video?

There is now a direct link people. It goes straight to the video.

FeralPhoenix - Yes I saw and replyed again forwarding you to this trailer. Release date? Well that's murky. On IGN it says June. In an interview they said "before Christmas"...expect for them to announce that it is delayed to SEPTEMBER at GDC.

I do have to say that even though it is frustrating....the SOny marketting are a clever bunch of mother f*ckers. First a small snippet on Heroes and everybody's like "I wanna see more!" and then two measly camera phone shots...and then this. They knew what they were doing from the start. I feel bad for doubting them. :o

ps. SOrry for the mouthful of a title "New Official Sony Heavenly Sword Trailer" is a bit retarded...but I wanted to seperate it from the other video post. I think "New Official Heavenly Sword Trailer" would have sufficed. Ah too late now.

pps. Although you can download the trailer in HD. Ninja Theory have posted this link for a high quality download.
