Ninja Theory's Heavenly Sword has some beautiful music -- anyone with the demo can testify to that.

Sony's laying its exclusive bait early this year-end season, announcing a September 12th release date for Heavenly Sword. The crumb of a demo might be enough to whet the appetites of software-starved PlayStation 3 owners leading up to the full game release (really, what PS3 owner isn't gonna bite?),...

Heavenly Sword could have been an interactive version of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon exclusively for Xbox One. Gametrailers chronicles the history of the now-PS3 exclusive by Ninja Theory using trailers that have been shown since May 2003. Originally, protagonist Nariko had black hair, a mor...

That was it...? As the most significant chunk of data to hit PSN since Gran Turismo HD (CAC didn't live up to the hype), and weighing in at 996 MB, the Heavenly Sword demo merely offers a beefy pinch of tease. Call us biased. We are. At E3 we were able to play well past where this demo ends, and we'...

A long time ago we mentioned that a demo for Heavenly Sword was in the works. No, we don't have a date for the demo yet, but from what was gleaned in the statements by Dean Calver, the lead programmer at Ninja Theory, it's coming along quite nicely. Just like the rest of the game. He said, "if you t...

Thursday's Heavenly Sword feature is a lot less text-intensive and a lot more "oooh, aaaah" intensive. For yesterday, GamePro allowed readers to check out some of the incredibly beautiful art for the title. This includes, of course, the beautiful Nariko and that outfit that, we're certain, is worn f...

How humiliating! We got so caught up in the news from everywhere else, we completely neglected to keep up with the Heavenly Sword week over at GamePro. No worries, though, we'll catch you up over the next couple of hours. Wednesday's feature focused on the three fighting styles available to Nariko a...
