Ninja Theory's Hellblade Will Rely On Motion Capture and Focus on Story; Nariko's Return? "Not in Hellblade"

Fans are definitely hungry for information on the upcoming “AAA Indie” game by Ninja Theory Hellblade, and the studio provided some more information about it on Twitter.

We learn that the game will rely on motion capture (defined “very important”) for character animation, and the story will play an “extremely important” role in the title.

For the moment  the length of the game hasn’t been decided yet, as the team is focusing on “awesome gameplay.”

For the fans of Heavenly Sword, there are bad news and possibly good news. Asked about the return of Nariko, Ninja Theory answered “not in Hellblade.” While this means that Nariko won’t appear in the new game, the wording could definitely be interpreted as an indication that she could actually return in another title.

Unfortunately we have no way to know if this is really a tease of a new Heavenly Sword game, but if you want to know more about Hellblade you can check out our extensive interview from Gamescom.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
