The lights are on
Sony and developer of the original Heavenly Sword, Ninja Theory, had a falling out and broke up their relationship, but according to a U.K. magazine, the franchise may live on.
The new issue of PlayGamer reportedly contains info about Heavenly Sword 2, and the mag says that more details will come at E3. If this report is true, the game will be an open-world title set 10 years after the original. Players will have to earn the right to wield the sword after mastering different martial arts disciplines.
If this rumor is true and the game is in the works, it'll be interesting to see if original developer Ninja Theory is at the helm. It is currently working on the Devil May Cry reboot for Capcom, and it is unknown if it or Sony owns the Heavenly Sword IP.

Loved the story telling. Not much else.
I would play another Heavenly Sword. The combat wasn't too shabby and the cutscenes were pretty good from what I remember.
Awsome! Can't wait!!! Loved the first one!
I'm loving these E3 rumors. This time of the year is always fun. :)
I finally played the game this year and it still looks gorgeous. For a sequel they should improve the combat system though. It is one of remarkable exclusives.
I was thinking to myself, I wonder why the IP would have been pushed to the back-burner for all these years and all of a sudden brought back... I guess HS has a bit more room to move with GoW being done...
i didnt like the 1st one at all..this company has good ideas but their execution are poor...those are the people doing devil may cry for capcom...shudders
Loved the first one, Can't wait for the second one! The End!
That's good.....good game!!
