 I played Heavenly Sword while I was at GC Leipzig for about an hour I would say and the game is way cool and a lot of fun. You can pull off some amazing moves in it and it makes good use of the Sixaxis motion-sensing tech. It is definitely a game worth checking out for all you PS3 owners who like a good fighting game.

The game is set for release on 12 September, one week from now. 


game centres on Nariko, a doomed heroine out to avenge her people, a warrior
clan almost destroyed by the tyrant King Bohan. 
Had Nariko been born male, she would have fulfilled the prophecy that
the child of her father would lead the clan to a glorious future.  Nonetheless, her father raised her to know
the skills of warfare, imparting to her the arts and mindset of the warrior.  When he was captured by Bohan, Nariko is left
with only one choice - to take up the Heavenly Sword. The sword is the clan’s greatest and most
guarded treasure - a hugely powerful weapon that gives the person who carries
it the power too scatters foes and defeat armies.   However, it was meant to be carried by a
deity alone; its power drains the life of any mortal who wields it.  In taking up the sword to rescue her father
and save the last remnance of her clan, Nariko has sealed her fate.

But this is no ordinary tale of combat and revenge.  The combat and cinematics in Heavenly Sword
are rendered with full-body and
full-facial motion capture delivered by New Zealand’s WETA Studios – leading lights of Hollywood special effects technology.  The game’s cast is headed up and directed by
Andy Serkis – otherwise known as Gollum from The Lord of the Rings – and you’ll
fight to a score composed by world-renowned modern composer Nitin Sawhney.  Heavenly Sword, harnessing the power of the
PS3 Cell Broadband Engine processor,
has set a new standard for game production – and then, there’s the combat

  • Fight using
    the three stances of the Heavenly Sword: Speed Stance, Power Stance and Range
    Stance – all of which can be switched mid-fight to create devastating
    combinations of attacks and special moves.
  • Take down a
    whole squad of troops with artillery or use a sniper-bow to eliminate
    individuals, guiding your arrows to their targets with the tilt-sensitive
    SIXAXIS wireless controller. Take weapons from the dead - and employ
    them against your foes.
  • Fight one-on-one
    against mighty boss characters; battle squads of highly intelligent enemies and
    take the field against thousands of soldiers – this is scaling combat like
    nothing seen before.

I found a five-part mini anime
over at GameStop that explains the legend involved in the Heavenly Sword game which I thought you might all be interested in watching
while I upload the more than 145 screenshots and art pieces I have from
GC Leipzig.
