Among the many games showing up at Xbox Games Showcase Extended after E3 2021 was Ninja Theory’s Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2. Once again, we got to see where Senua’s journey will take her next. However, rather than a traditional trailer, this is a behind-the-scenes video for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2.
Ninja Theory Chief Creative Ninja Tameem Antoniades led into it by explaining the current state of development for the game. He noted:
What we’re doing right now is building a good, chunky slice of the game before we then move into full production to build out the rest. Hellblade was very special for us and we didn’t want to do a straight sequel. We wanted to do something extra special and so we’re making our lives as difficult as possible in that pursuit.
Antoniades also confirmed again that it is set in Iceland. He noted the team visited the country to ensure it looks and sounds authentic. He also noted the team is actually making costumes and scanning them in. It is also working with Epic Games on its characters.
Here’s the new Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 behind-the-scenes trailer.
