For now this one is firmly in the rumor category but we sure hope it turns out to be true. According to UK PlayGamer Magazine, Heavenly Sword 2 is already in the works and will again be a PS3 exclusive. Sadly though at least if the reports turn out to be true original developer Ninja Theory won’t be working on the project as they decided to go multi-platform a while back. The original Heavenly Sword was an excellent game that a lot of people just missed since it was a launch title and quickly got overshadowed as a brand new IP by other more well known games. This is a shame, it had great gameplay, excellent voice work, gorgeous graphics and some of the best use of the PS3’s sixaxis motion controls to date. These days you can probably find it in Gamestop for around $20, trust us pick it up and give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re not convinced by now, check out our review of it from way back in 2008.
According to the post, Heavenly Sword 2 will be an open world sandbox game that is set 10 years after the events of the original game. The ever dangerous ‘Heavenly Sword’ won’t be with you from the game’s start this time though as time around you will have to prove you are worthy to wield the legendary sword by mastering a number of martial arts.
As we said right now there is no word on who the developer might be or when we might here more about it but if it is real then expect to hear more about it during this year’s E3. Until then, stay tuned to see how this develops.
