The original Heavenly Sword attracted quite the cult following among early PlayStation 3 adopters back in 2007, and as such many were disappointed to learn of Sony’s decision to cancel the proposed sequel a few years back.
However, while Heavenly Sword 2 sadly won’t see the light of day anytime soon, some juicy concept art on the hack-‘n-slash sequel has surfaced online this week, offering us a glimpse at what might have been.
According to reports, the game’s enemies were known as the Ravens, and followed a chap known as the Raven King, who appeared to have samurai-like design influences. This particular foe was a major enemy in Heavenly Sword 2, with the Ravens themselves described as vain and evil.
Check out the concept art below and be sure to visit Siliconera for some more images. Enjoy.

I enjoyed it as well. Even had nice boss battles. Sure the rest of it was a little GOWis in the fighting controls but it had a distinct flare to it. I do think they will bring it back someday. She was beautifully designed...with the flowing red hair and the motion-capture animations were nice. The game while a bit short was wonderfully written and produced. A sequel would be nice. Those that haven't played it would do themselves a favor and pick it up. Definately won't be disappointed.
