We haven't heard much about Ninja Theory's new project but as time rolls onward, we begin to pick up a few details here and there.
Understandably, a lot of you are hoping for a sequel to Heavenly Sword , one of the first high-quality exclusive titles for the PlayStation 3. To this day, it remains one of PSXE's favorites; the cinematography, choreography, and fantastic voice acting (not to mention the near-perfect lip syncing between voice and animation) really sold us. The game itself was pretty damn good, too. However, new artistry that has been floating around tells us Ninja Theory's new project certainly isn't Heavenly Sword 2 , as the artwork contains more of a gritty, hardcore theme similar to that of Gears of War . Now, a European source has apparently confirmed that this mystery project utilizes the popular "UE3" (Unreal Engine 3), which should come as good news to all you tech-savvy gamers out there. A light sprinkling of details surfaced at GamesCom 2009 last month but this is about all we know right now; we expect more info to arrive in the very near future, though. As for Heavenly Sword 2 , there is speculation that another studio is currently working on it, which always makes us skeptical.
Perhaps Ninja Theory will officially lift the lid on their game at the Tokyo Game Show but until then, we'll have to track both that and the possibility of a sequel from…well, someone else.
