Heavenly Sword is one of those games that came out in the early days of PS3, and managed to display the console’s magnificent power. It also sold a decent amount of copies in its time, and has garnered a faithful fanbase. Ninja Theory developed the first game, but ever since the studio parted ways with Sony, a sequel of the hack-n-slash title has been in doubt.
Not no longer, apparently, as PlayGamer magazine has teased that a sequel will be present at E3.
According to the mag, the game will be set 10 years after the first, and will be an open-world sandbox title.
PlayGamer went on to say that in Heavenly Sword 2, players will start out with basic abilities like hand combat, moving to more physical battles as the game proceeds, and then when deemed worthy, the Heavenly Sword will be unleashed.
Sounds rather hot. E3 it is, then.
Thanks, Silent Chief.
