Anyone here remembers that game, Heavenly Sword? It had a fairly decent story, characters and the graphics/voice acting were on par with Uncharted, both games had the exact same problem, both had short single player campaigns and no multiplayer offerings whatsoever, Uncharted was given another try by Naughty dog because the first game sold well enough, but that wasn't the case with Heavenly Sword... the poor thing, Ninja Theory went multiplat and scrapped any ideas for a sequel because they're not looking to sign another contract with Sony for a sequel and Sony basically ditched the IP, although Nariko the main character is featured on Battle Royale.

Sucker Punch or Naughty dog could do wonders with the Heavenly Sword universe.

IF they give it to a developer that can make a decent action game, then yes.

Naughty Dog once they're done with the Last of Us, I wouldn't want Sony Santa Monica to handle the project because we all know it'd end up becoming a god of war clone and the first game was fairly different.

I enjoyed Enslaved. It wasnt amazing but I had fun with it and the story was somewhat interesting.

The only difference I remember is that god of war was much better game.

The only thing good about the original game was the song used in the commercial.

I wouldn't want to see Sucker Punch or Naughty Dog restricted by the IP. The universe wasn't even very interesting, so I'd rather it stay abandoned in favor of new IPs.

I'm all for new IPs dont get me wrong, but i liked Heavenly Sword, i have a soft spot for it i dont know why, i didnt finish the game, i stopped playing right before the last boss if i recall correctly, i have to play through it once more.

I agree, they should make a Heavenly Sword 2. Really, the only complaint I ever heard about the game was how short it was. Seems like a short list of things to fix there. So all they need to do is make part 2 two to three times longer than the first.

A remake of a below mediocre game with not much a fanbase because a few people think it should be made? Hmmm nope doesn't make sense and why ask for a remake? Might as well ask for a part 2. That would make more sense.

I bought Heavenly Sword because my PS3 was lacking on games early on and it looked really cool visually. And even then it felt like a waste of money. There is a good reason why the game didn't see a sequel this gen.

We're getting The Last of Us this late into the current generation, we're almost done. The Wii U is around the corner and the next xbox and playstation are all but confirmed for next year announcements. There's nothing wrong with a sequel for HS, maybe next gen?

There is nothing wrong with a sequel for HS as long as it's not like the predecessor, but if you are making a sequel, make one for a game that is actually good and deserves one. Like Vanquish.

Their talented devs, that's for sure, but I'm not sure how well they would do on ideas that are not their own.

Ninja Theory did a good job with the story but they really lack in the gameplay compartment, I felt the same way with Enslaved. Yeah they should give this to another developer if they have the rights to the franchise.

Out of all the great games they could be making, like I dunno the Matrix or Blade Runner. You choose Heavenly Sword?

One of the games that really made the ps3 stand out back in 2008 (along with mgs4, gta4 , and lbp) that made me get one...I would love there to be a sequel. I don't understand what Ninja Theory was so bent out of shape about... The game sold well over a million copies, for a system that just launched and a new ip, what did they expect?

I'm just curious, is that something Sony can make the call on or is it something where Ninja Theory would make the final call? I think they did Enslaved after Heavenly Sword, and they're on Devil May Cry now, so it seems like they've gained recognition amongst major publishers. If you think about it, they've worked with Microsoft, Sony, Namco-Bandai and now Capcom.

Well, Capcom has been a former shadow of itself for years now. It's just that many people didn't acknowledge it since they gained a lot of momentum by bringing back Street Fighter in 2009. But after that? Yeah, they kinda screwed up a lot. Still a major publisher, but they're really at the bottom of the barrel.

No, they shouldn't. The first game, aside from technical graphics, was sh!t. Unless the demo didn't represent the whole game.

I agree, I always had a soft spot for the first game. Unfortunately, it would end up playing second fiddle to God of War, and after the debacle of Killzone and Resistance, where the top tier franchise cannibalized the less prominent one, I do not think they would want to try something like that again.

they should and they should do more to make it its own game. HS did a little bit different but at the end of the day felt like God of War with a girl. And Im not sure if you want to create competition with your own IPs, having two exclusives so similar isn't really the best idea.

they should do something Kind of like how Diddy Kong Racing even though it was just a game like mario kart did things to make it feel like a whole new experience.

Heavenly Sword was awesome. Great and memorable characters, good story, beautiful artstyle, simplistic but fun gameplay, it was just excellent all around. The only real legitimate complaint people had (myself included) was that it's only 5 hours long, but seeing as how you can get the game for incredibly cheap now there's no reason not to give it a try. Everyone should play it.

I'm kind of sad that I sold my copy now. This thread makes me want to do another playthrough.
