Remember Heavenly Sword? The PS3 launch window title was often called “Goddess of War” and for good reason. It was about as close as we were going to get to a God of War game on the PS3 until Sony Santa Monica released God of War III in 2010. Now the game is getting a film adaptation, and the first trailer has just been released.
In the debut trailer for the Heavenly Sword movie, we’re introduced to the basic premise of the game. Nariko must fight against an invading kingdom by wielding a weapon known as the Heavenly Sword. The sword is cursed, however, and wielding it will doom her to a fate worse than death. As you can already tell, it’s quite pleasant.
As the trailer notes, Anna Torv is reprising her role as the voice of Nariko, but she appears to be the only returning cast member from the game. The main antagonist, King Bohan, was originally voiced and mo-capped by Andy Serkis, but Alfred Molina will be taking over the role in the film.
Unlike the upcoming Ratchet & Clank feature film, the Heavenly Sword film adaptation will be a direct-to-video effort. In other words, fans of the game should probably keep their expectations in check.
The Heavenly Sword film adaptation is on track to hit DVD and Blu-ray at some point this year.[Image: HeavenlySwordFilm/YouTube]
