Ever since the original impressed a great many, gamers have been pining for a Heavenly Sword sequel.
And while it remains to be seen if such a title will ever see the light of day, interesting news has arisen:
If you check the IMDB database , you will find a listing for "Heavenly Sword," a new animated movie currently set for release in 2012. The film apparently has an estimated $6,000,000 budget (which isn't much) and features director Gun Ho Jang, and actors Thomas Jane, Alfred Molina, and Anna Torv. The latter was the voice of Nariko in the game, but Molina will replace Andy Serkis as King Bohan. Little else is known about the movie.
If we wanted to be optimistic, we could say that such a project might correspond with a new Heavenly Sword title. After all, 2012 is five years after the release of the first game; it might make sense to assume the animated film would hint at a sequel. But maybe that's being too optimistic.
