Heavenly Sword film looks a lot like Heavenly Sword

It's been nearly seven years since Heavenly Sword debuted on PlayStation 3. So, naturally, now is the perfect time to release animated film based on Ninja Theory's acclaimed action game. The direct-to-video picture will premiere ...

First look at the CG animated Heavenly Sword movie

That direct-to-home-video Heavenly Sword movie didn't inspire much confidence when it was first talked about. This trailer, I'm sorry to say, has done little to change my mind. The CG animated film from Blockade Entertainment is due in spr...

Ninja Theory: 'We would've done Heavenly Sword 2'

I remember Heavenly Sword being one of the better responses to the question 'Why did you spend $600 on a PS3?' back in the day. It wasn't $600 good, but it was nice, and I'd certainly play a sequel game. If there ever is a sequel game, it i...

Ninja Theory made no cash from Heavenly Sword exclusivity

Enslaved, unlike Ninja Theory's last game, is going to appear on both the PS3 and Xbox 360. There's a very good reason for it too, since the developer has confessed that despite Heavenly Sword's massive hype, it never made the company a sin...

E3 2007: New Heavenly Sword videos; why are all ancient people British?
