Ninja Theory’s Hellblade Getting First Dev Diary Video Next Week: Teaser Pictures Shared

After its announcement at Sony’s Gamescom conference Ninja Theory’s upcoming game Hellblade created a lot of curiosity within the community, and next week we’re going to see more about it, as announced by the developer on Twitter.

The first #Hellblade developer diary will be released next week. This episode focuses on how we created the Gamescom teaser trailer.

The video comes from the camera and editing magic of Melina Juergens, who has already worked extensively with Ninja Theory on several trailers for DmC, including the launch trailer.

Juergens to get our imagination running Juergens, shared multiple teaser pictures of the shooting and editing process on Twitter and Facebook.

    Is that the girl playing the main character? She looks just like her


      She definately looks like her !

    • Sameer Monir

      I think they MOCAP-ED her, remember this is not your typical AAA game, so they won’t need to hire some famous actress, besides she looks like a perfect fit if you ask me.

        “your typical AAA game”

        Except this is a typical AAA game made by independent developers and a game isn’t AAA because it has famous people in it

        • Sameer Monir

          A game is AAA due to high production values, in other words MONEY, and Money = High Profile Actors, They can be a part of it.

          • GameDev345

            Yeah not in all games, there are many high production values AAA games with no famous or high profile actors. Funny because this is an indie AAA game as Ninja Theory calls it, so it goes through high production value but doesn’t have funding from a big publisher

            Basically indies can also be high production value, which destroys of logic of what an AAA actually is

          • Sameer Monir

            Totally agree.

            Regarding indies having high production values, It will be interesting to see how Ninja Theory goes through the whole Independent AAA thing, they say Hellblade got a fraction of their previous titles budgets, but at the same time it will be an AAA title, if they could deliver, I could see many independent studios following suit.

      Hope so, she is gorgeous!

    • megablast16

      That’s Melina Juergens, the photographer and video editor who’s doing the developer diaries. Not sure if she’s playing the main character though, she isn’t a performer.

  • Sameer Monir

    I’m totally excited to hear more Hellblade, I’m a bit down that the next Dev Diary is about the Trailer rather than something new, but I’ll take what I can get for now, Hopefully development is right on track, Cause I need this ASAP.

  • They also already release a short teaser for the “Behind the Blade” Videos:

  • Spoonyrogdrumps

    I will be watching the video that’s coming. I think more studios need to do Dev Diaries on a regular basis. I know a lot of them come out when the game is finished but I would like to see them as they are making the game. I think it gives a greater appreciation for the work they are doing and it tantalizes us with how the game is going.
    Thanks Ninja Theory and DualShockers.
