Yes, The Heavenly Sword Demo is Coming …

Heavenly Sword Box Art

Hi, this is Kyle, I’m a producer here at SCEA’s Santa Monica Studios. One of the titles I am working on, and quite frankly playing most often, is Heavenly Sword. I’ve read a lot of your comments on this blog about this title and I’m happy to confirm the reports that we’ll have a downloadable demo coming this week to the PLAYSTATION Store.

The complete game is still set for September, but I think you’ll find this demo is a great sample of what’s in store and it’ll certainly give you a good idea of the look and feel of the game. To set the stage here, at the beginning of this demo, our heroine, Nariko, gains consciousness after a violent encounter with the evil King Bohan and his army. Nariko learns that Bohan is holding her father, Shen, prisoner inside a massive temple complex so she sets out to fulfill her destiny and embarks on a quest for vengeance against the invading King and his army.

Keep a lookout for the demo on the PLAYSTATION Store this week, I’m anxious to read what you guys think of it.

Sony needs to fire the jerk who got this GamePro editor mad. This is bad press for what could be a system seller.

Heavenly Sword should sell at least 500,000 copies the first week or more. 40cal said it here first baby!

@AssasinXIII

Please don’t start… Those of who still want to request features, post them under the 1.90 firmware update post. It would really suck to start seeing people request feature Sony already knows we want….
