Heavenly Sword movie gets trailer, arrives September 2nd

Heavenly Sword's digital movie spin-off will arrive this September


Fans of the God of War-esque PlayStation 3 action game Heavenly Sword will be happy to hear that Nariko is making her comeback... well, in movie form anyway. Sony's digital film Heavenly Sword is making its way to Blu-Ray and DVD on September 2nd, and features an all-star voice cast that includes Anna Torv (Fringe), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) and Thomas Jane (The Punisher)

IGN debuted a new trailer for the film, along with the news of its home release, yesterday. It's very similar to the game that was released a few years back, focusing on a beautiful warrior named Nariko (Torv) who possesses a much-sought after weapon known as the Heavenly Sword. As expected, various forces are trying to retrieve the sword from her to wield the power for their own, including the villainous King Bohan (Molina), who will stop at nothing to obtain it.

Featuring sharp visuals along the same lines as the game's cinemas, the Blu-Ray and DVD releases will also feature behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and filmmakers. For those who prefer downloading it digitally to buying a physical release, don't worry, as you'll be able to get it on PlayStation Network on the same day.

Hey, if the movie's popular enough, we might just get that game sequel that we want on PlayStation 4. Well, maybe. For now, enjoy Nariko's return for what it is.
