The lights are on
A sizzle reel by a former Sony employee showcases some PlayStation 3 exclusives that have been shelved.
The video by animator Martin Binfield shows off several games that shipped, including LittleBigPlanet PSP, MediEvil Resurrection, and the original Heavenly Sword. We also get a look at some canceled games, including The Getaway 3, an unnamed sci-fi game, and another called "Lifestyle Project"
His online resume also lists work on Heavenly Sword 2, which was put on the shelf in 2008. Developer Ninja Theory went on to make Enslaved instead.
Heavenly Sword is my second favorite PS3 exclusive :(
Number one is the Uncharted series.
Hopefully Ninja Theory will go back to it eventually.
this is a shame...
Wasn't there Heavenly Sword action figures that were supposed to come out in 2010? I always thought that was going to lead into a sequel announcement.
Ninja Theory was never involved with Heavenly Sword 2. I remember the rumors from last year (right before e3) quite well; Sony owns the brand, so they could put whoever they want on the project. Apparently, SCE Studios Cambridge/Team Soho (who got absorbed by Cambridge Studio) was put on the job. Shame it didn't materialize. I liked Heavenly Sword, and while I would have preferred Ninja Theory to make the sequel, it's always interesting when a new developer takes over a franchise.
Besides, poor Cambridge Studio has been relegated to Playstation Home stuff all generation. I want to see studios make GAMES, not...whatever PS Home assets count as.
It sucks that there's nothing here in the video from HS2. Except, perhaps, the gray, unlit, untextured warrior doing sword moves in the second half of the video. The space game, and "Lifestyle Project" could've been something cool too.
I liked the first Heavenly Sword alright. Would be nice to see what improvements they could make to a sequel now, after working on DMC.
I haven't played the first one but I remember playing the demo and enjoying it. Its a shame to see a sequel or any games cancelled.
Man Getaway 3 now thats something i would have owned
The next sequel I really want besides Mirror's Edge 2.
aw man ;-;
Great, the cherry to my headache!
The first wasn't all that great. It reminded me of a female God of War but less angry. less fun.
I hope HS 2 will be picked up again. The first one was a great game.
I was never going to get this game or the first one so i dont care if they made it or not but i did love enslaved. :-)
the 1st one was boring quick even though the grafix were awesome but the gameplay was not tight enough, u couldnt even jump and the story, wow, just boring...maybe the 2nd would have been good but i doubt it, this company has a sketchy development past...
Heavenly Sword was alright. Almost like God of War, but the female version. I think the second one could of gotten big like Uncharted 2, if made right.
