Did you really laugh out loud?

interesting. Wonder how much Journey to the West actually influences this...

I love the look of this game :) I'm ashamed to admit this but I've never played Heavenly Sword. Is it worth picking up? I've heard it's really short but I don't mind now that you can get it for £10 or less. :p

It's absolutely worth it. Yes, its roughly only 6 hours long, but it's an incredibly fun 6 hours.
 
Also, this looks pretty darn good. Makes me want to check out Journey to the West...

Something about the character design turns me off.

Posted by Catolf

looks like fun

Posted by trophyhunter

so it's sayuki journeys west?

Posted by billyhoush

Reminds me of the last Prince of Persia. I hope she helps you jump high.

@iizcallum:  As a large fan of the action/adventure genre, I can tell you I didn't care for Heavenly Sword at all. If you've played games like Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry, and God of War, you'll find that Heavenly Sword can't compete against any of them. It has some cool ideas, but ultimately it's all jumbled up and is marred by hideous technical issues, sub-par graphics, annoying voice acting (except for Andy Serkis), and a combat system that didn't feel nearly as satisfying as any other great action game.
 
That said, a rental would be all you need to justify the title since it's pretty cheap. Maybe you'll like it, but I don't think anyone who spent $60 on it did.

Moar new games!

Posted by LordKorax

I wonder if the lives of the two characters are bound together somehow. The trailer wasn't too specific about that...

Edited by SPACETURTLE
This looks exciting! Reminds me of Beyond Good And Evil

Now that's crazy talk

I wonder which one of them will die in the ending.

Posted by JamesKond

Prince of Persia.

Weird, first I've heard of this. The art style reminds of Zeno Clash but with robots.

Posted by juice8367

I'm totally into this one from ninja theory.

YAWN

Posted by JackSukeru

Story in Heavenly Sword and everything was alright, and well delivered character performances etc. 
Hated the game part though, all of it. ...just awful.
  
It's gonna take a lot of praise for me to be interested in this, even if it's based on that Sun Wukong story or whatever.

Posted by adoggz

so this is just gonna be 1 giant escort mission?

The two escape from a robot slave ship and in a crash the girl recovers first and puts that "tiara" band to control "Monkey" (a loner) so he HAS to help her return to her colony.
Posted by wefwefasdf

Definitely interested. Monkey/Ninja combat has to be cool.

Posted by Gre

So the whole game is an escort mission?

Posted by Taka

Original Son Goku  meets Beyond Good and Evil meets the Cell Shader PoP?
 
...Denied!

Posted by Olivaw

Interesting concept, retelling Journey to the West in a post-apocalyptic sort of way.
 
Game doesn't look super sharp so far, though. Graphics and combat look a little plain at the moment. That could change.

Posted by Wandrecanada

For those who are curious about the story they aren't shy about saying it IS Journey to the West.   She's the Monk and he's the Monkey.
 
I also have to agree with the above that the graphic quality looks a tad low.  I noticed a lot of hard edges to their polygonal shapes that don't usually show in modern games.  It seems most apparent in the girl's weird haircut and the crazy robot chasing them at the end of the trailer.

Posted by solidlife

could be good.

Posted by Daftasabat

The look of this reminded me of "Heavy Metal FAKK 2"

Posted by papercut

great, its escort mission the game.

QFT
 
Also, did anyone else notice how this looks uncannily like the last Prince of Persia game, atleast mechanically.
Posted by MisterMouse

Looks pretty cool.

Posted by NMC2008

So this is POP08 2?

Edited by EgoCheck616

Consider me interested. Getting sick of all the "omg explosion blood lol noob headshot" games lately. 
It's nice to see something a little more stylish.

Posted by MrCellophane

Interesting thumbnail. Damn headline covers a pantyshot. Oh well.

Posted by Origina1Penguin

Was that a Wilhelm scream in the trailer?

Posted by Evansoft

Man, I would love to see a game based on Monkey, straight up, without so much artistic interpretation.

Posted by guiseppe

Wilhelm scream... Sold!

Posted by Rizla

Theoretical NINJAS!!

I was thinking that too. But it still might be good.

Where are the giant tits?

I think Saiyuki: Journey West 
is about as close as you're going to get. My roommate had this and showed me a bit of the game. It's pretty close to Final Fantasy Tactics in game play, but it's close to the story of Journey to the West without having some crazy artistic spin on it . . . like Enslaved.
Posted by SonofSeth

Loved Heavenly Sword, looking forward to this.

Posted by squidracerX

  
@infestedandy saying heavenly sword had "annoying voice acting"...
 
I disagree 100%, i think it was the best cutscenes i had ever watched in my life up until that point, and not many have topped it since; in fact  i played the game FOR the cutscenes... The actors actually acted which is super rare.... Kai was amazing.
