    I personally loved the hell out of Heavenly Sword, so I’m eager to see what they’re gonna bust out in this joint venture.

    • Agreed. Heavenly Sword was one of those “greater than the sum of its parts” titles, but the media tended to look at the parts instead of the sum, thus… well, a little bit of criticism. We’ll probably never see a proper sequel, but I’m convinced Ninja Theory will be able to create another excellent overall package.

        Loved the game too, very nice gameplay and jaw dropping presentation (mo-cap) Most people complained about its length, but I thought it was just right, and the separate acts can be replayed.

        Very much looking forward to their new project.
