An angelic duet of Heavenly Sword videos


The above video, captured at the official press event at the Mayfair hotel in London (again, our invitation must have got lost in the mail), may just be enough to get fence-sitters to buy the game. Opening with a cinematic revealing some backstory of the eponymous Heavenly Sword itself, the video then launches in to some frantic in-game combat. Expect bone-crunching combo moves and a bazooka to feature heavily. Yes, a bazooka.

Despite being captured on shaky-cam and then uploaded to YouTube, the video is still able to impress. From the way the barrels move to the explosion partical effects. Another, clearer, video has been uploaded to Jeuxvideo.fr from the IDEF in Cannes. In it we see a new character talking to Nariko (friend, sibling, lover?) as well as one of those "press the button at the right time to make stuff happen" sequences that are all the rage nowadays. This game is one to watch out for at E3, where no doubt we'll be seeing plenty more of it.

1. This really looks like a God of War ripoff.

2. This is God of War in female form... Everything screams it from the amount of bad guys that are on the screen, the way she falls, her weapons. Idk if I am all that hyped up in getting this game anymore. Guess wait and see how it performs at e3.

3. Who cares? I mean God Of War is an absolutely incredible game. If this is similar to that then bring it on! I mean I'm sure there is innovation in the game. Ninja Theory would not lead us down the wrong path. But to dismiss it because it looks like a 'clone of God Of War' is just dumb.

4. you people do know that this game was in development before god of war 1 even came out, right?

5. It's either the new God of War or the new Ninety Nine Nights. Or perhaps the new Kameo.

Please let it be the former.
