Ninja Theory has confirmed that Heavenly Sword will be released on the 14th September in the UK and the 19th for the rest of the EU, according to semi-official blog ThreeSpeech.

Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge and redemption that sees Nariko, a dazzling heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against an invading King and his army. A stunningly beautiful and emotional experience, Heavenly Sword delivers an unprecedented dramatic character performance.

The story builds around the ancient Heavenly Sword, which once belonged to a powerful deity. It can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly draining their life-force. When the ruthless and depraved King Bohan destroys the warrior clan that guards the Heavenly Sword, the clan leader’s daughter, Nariko, takes up the sword in a desperate fight for survival.

Nariko, a proclaimed scapegoat of a realized omen, must now fulfill her destiny of vengeance against the evil King Bohan, and save her clan's existence as it once was.
