Yet another hint towards Heavenly Sword 2 being revealed at E3 comes in the form of the latest Official PlayStation Magazine.
i thought the game was owned by Sony...how would it go multi and why would Ninja theory of all devs work on it after they dragged the game through the mud, even though it was able to sell over a million copies, especially when the PS3 was going through a rough time once it released
Ninja Theory said long time ago that they don't own the IP plus they wanted to develop for all platforms. this is unexpected, not HS2 but NT doing it
I think Ninja Theory expected the first one to sell gangbusters because it came out in 07 (I think) during a time when there weren't that many PS3 exclusives. I'm not going to say Ninja Theory sucks because I enjoyed the first one a lot. But a new dev isn't a bad thing. Wish Sony could get Naughty Dog (or maybe Guerilla) to work on the sequel. And if they had some Move integration for the bow and arrow scenes that would be crazy.
NT has nothing to do with the Heavenly Sword IP anymore, Sony stay in charge of the IP they own and decide when it's going to be a new sequel and who is going to make it...
Personally I would actually like to see this game given to the SCEJ studio. The fight scenes feel so heavily influenced by anime fight scenes I would love to see some devs from Japan have a crack at it
I bet Santa Monica are behind it.
If there is to be a HS2 game I hope it's none other than Santa Monica Studios that will take it on.
rumor is bogus since Ninja Theory isn't working on it, but one of Sony's studios. And thank God since Ninja Theory sucks!
Ninja Theory sucks? Without them, we wouldnt be hoping for a Heavenly Sword 2. Get your head straight.
Yep, Heavenly Sword is a Sony owned Ip. And I'm pretty sure Ninja Theory haven't hinted at a HS sequel. More like made comments of how they barely made profit on HS, Wanted to go multiplatform, and that they're busy with their next project, DmC. If Heavenly Sword 2 gets announced at E3, chances are NT isn't doing it.
I so hope that this is true...one of my favourite new Ips on the PS3 Edit: Heavenly Sword is a Sony IP, i think someone is missinformed here
Your right, don't know why we added that in! Thanks for the comment.
If it's true, i hope it's not Ninja Theory the developer. But according to me there's no need to get the IP back, it had to appear and die with the first chapter, like a movie (movies without sequels, ofc). I'd prefer something new, i start being a bit tired of sequels.
Yes please, the first one was great & fun, although too short..
Please be real, please please please be real! I miss Nariko :(
what if it turns out to be a ngp title, lol think about it the controls are basically there, (dual analog, sixaxis) and then some
wow that would actually be awesome!!! and its possible since Valkyria Chronicles did that when the sequel went to the PSP so HS can do it too =)
the first game was too damn hard...i gave up on it right after i bought it
This franchise is such a waste of time. The only good thing about it was the combat and even that couldn't carry the game as a whole. I just don't understand. Sony's resources could be spent working on better things, like Syphon Filter, Jak and Daxter 4, etc.
