Heavenly Sword Movie Receives First Trailer

by William Schwartz


Heavenly Sword may not receive a sequel just yet but we do get to see an animated movie version of the videogame tale. A trailer has been released showcasing the direct-to-video movie which stars a pretty good voice cast.

IGN was able to get their hands on the trailer first which features a voice cast of Anna Torv, Alfred Molina and Thomas Jane. Molina plays the titular villain, King Bohan. The movie based off of the game itself so it isn’t really a sequel, but more of a retelling of the Heavenly Sword story. The trailer is rather cool looking but it still manages to pale in comparison to the visuals found in the videogame which released on Playstation 3 back in 2007. However, fans can once again become encompassed by Nariko and her companion Kai as they protect the ‘Heavenly Sword’ from the evil King Bohan.

Hopefully the release of the movie will spark more interest in the title and eventually a full fledged sequel to the game. Heavenly Sword is set to release on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital on September 2nd.
