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.

  • Hey hey hey Travis.. let’s see Pain before you start playing Heavenly Sword.. :-p haha

    It’s not fair!

  • Sony already said in-game XMB can NOT, I repeat CAN NOT be done.

  • @AssasinXIII:
    1. it’s because of people like you that flood the comment threads with non-related comments that Sony doesn’t often respond directly to the comments.
    2. you do realize that you misspelled “Assassin”, right?

  • PLASE SONY

    GIVE US BETA FOR LITTLE BIG PLANET

  • @Madness
    really? i missed that. do you have a link?
    i can see them not being able to do it in old games that maybe weren’t prepared for in-game XMB, but since they’re doing it in Home, i don’t see why they couldn’t do it for future titles…

  • Too bad when the demo comes out, I’ll be testing for my license :(

    Nice work man! Thank you very much. I imagine that as a producer you should know which games may arrive next and that have not even been mention and that is so cool.

    Off topic: I just got Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 for PS2 and Resistance. Happiest man alive!

  • Travis Williams

    Dang 40 Cal cut me some slack. Working for Sony should have some benifits. I am so calling Kyle now…. WOOT

  • All I can say is “its about time” Its been frustrating seeing Live users get demos every week of good games and we get useless trailers. Hopefully from now on we get at least a demo a week.

    Looking very forward to HS. Looks awesome.

  • @54 Madness

    “Lempel was later asked if PS3 gamers would have XMB access in-game, to which he replied, ‘It’s definitely possible and it’s something we’re working on.’ “

  • That’s a hot box cover.

  • – AssasinXIII

    Please shut up and stop acting like a child…you aren’t really being supportive in anyway…*sarcasm starts* i’m pretty sure all this developer want to hear is i want this, i want that *sarcasm ends*.

    Seriously though grow up….and if you wanna keep saying those things go speak to a wall….because all you’re doing is Trolling and Spamming and wasting space.

  • With no Jump button I feel this will be too much like Mark of kri… Yes, folks, that’s a bad thing. I will, however, stay optomistic about it and I’m going to buy it no matter what… I support Sony’s in house exclusives to the fullest. Here’s hoping Sony will release Eightdays next year if I buy enough of these in house games. “ha”

  • @Travis and 40cal

    LOL!!!

    Give us the phone. We promise not to call…..like..for 2 seconds…

  • “violent encounter with the “evil” King Bohan”

    Are you sure he isn’t just misunderstood? We “evil” guys are getting a bad rap.

    (Maybe you should make a video with Bohan dancing to some really corny music to show his softer side.) :P

  • Nerf TRAVIS! but you dont have LITTLE BIG PLANET ! hahaha

  • Nice….I still can’t believe this demo is coming….YESSS!!!

  • Sony Read This

    I want you to take a look at this thread:

    http://www.ps3forums.com/showthread.php?p=1718412

    I hope you can address the PlayStation Store issues on mainly third-party support. Today XBOX Live just received a NASCAR 08 and All-Pro Football 2K8. I want All-Pro Football 2K8 but how am I supposed to see if it’s any good? Look at that link to see the multiplatform E3 demos they received and we didn’t. I like you Sony and I don’t want you falling behind. Please, get every multiplatform demo that Live has and then get more.

  • Yea I agree with you stunt. We need to start getting 3rd party support with demos. I really dont think its Sony’s fault though.

  • @StuntF50

    Dude…Sony is already behind..WAY behind

  • Is there any chance the demo will be out in NA or just Europe. All I have heard is that it will be only in Europe so I hope for a NA version also.

    On another note not having to do any thing with this game. Is the Darkness demo going to come out in NA also. As of right now it is only out on the Europe servers.

  • @ Joe….they r only behind because of the 2 year head start of 360. And Sony will provail.

  • Sorry I meant Lucifer…so sorry

  • But I am guessing the Heavenly Sword Demo will be worldwide release.

  • Nice I can’t wait to try it out.
    I heard elsewhere The Darkness Demo is coming out.

  • Thanks for this demo and PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING.If you could do one a week that would be cool.
