Heavenly Sword 2 Lost Concept Art And Samurai Inspired Enemies

By Spencer . August 22, 2012 . 6:10pm


Heavenly Sword 2 isn’t going to come out, but Sony was developing a sequel in their Cambridge studio. The enemies in the Heavenly Sword 2 were the Ravens and the Raven King (top right) had a samurai motif. He was a major enemy in Heavenly Sword 2. Other Raven squad members had armor designed to look like an insect’s shell. The Ravens were described as vain and evil.

The twins were comic relief in Heavenly Sword 2. These characters are chained together and often bicker since they have different personalities.




Heavenly Sword 2 had a desert race that traveled by caravan. Artwork below shows the caravan setting up and one of the game’s storyboards.

Is that supposed to be Nariko’s revival?

    I want an HS sequel. More than anything right now.

  • I’d love a sequel, but not with Nariko though. Let her rest. Kai should be lead <3

  • Learii

    i hope this not short like the first one

    • ZEROthefirst

      The game isn’t coming out, it’s obviously stated within the first sentence. That’s not to say they won’t make some sort of sequel/prequel in the future.

    Sony could have pulled a Zelda out of Heavenly Sword, rebirthing Nariko which each sequel – prequel, the backstory of the sword the origin of the Raven, there’s a LOT of plot devices that they can use :( I really hope they realize this!

  • Even though they say its not coming out, I wish it was. I still have my Heavenly Sword and am not trading it in =)

  • TheDarkEmpress

    Why would they tease us like this…?

  • zero254

    Will be a good game if the whole game is like the end of the first one. Otherwise :(

    Or they could put her in the DMC. Now that would be interesting

  • Aurizen

  • Alex Cattaneo

    Looks awesome more awesome than that stupid move game there making! can someone make a petition to let sony make heavenly sword2!

    • M’iau M’iaut

    I think it would be great if Sony was to revive this series. I could see Heavenly Sword being for their portable systems & God of War for their console ones. So if Sony was to do that it would give the Vita another big exclusive & not make people think this game is a water down version. Like a lot of people thought with when God of War came out on the PSP.

    I would enjoy being able to play more as Kai. Plus the sequel could also have nothing to do with Nariko seeing as the game is called Heavenly Sword. So it could now be in the hands of some one new.

    I just hope in the future Sony will revive the series. It may of had some flaws but still was a good game.

    Twing twang! I just love Kai.

     I still like Heavenly Sword alot more than Enslaved. Wish they would have made that one instead of Enslaved.
    HS was alot better than the two years later released Enslaved in just every way: Gameplay, Graphics, Characters, just everything.
