Earlier today, Ninja Theory took advantage of its new found Twitter features and tweeted that the studio was planning to announce a new game this week at the Tokyo Games Show. Surprisingly enough, there were no tears shed about Heavenly Sword sales present in the tweet — or 140 characters weren’t enough to get it across. Regardless, it’s probably not going to be Heavenly Sword 2 despite how badly most PlayStation 3 owners would like for it to be that title.
Unfortunately, Ninja Theory’s latest outing, Enslaved, has been the target of recent criticisms around the fact that the PlayStation 3 format of the game features a lot more screen tearing than the 360 version. This is pretty ridiculous considering that NT got its start on the PlayStation 3 this generation and had no troubles with Heavenly Sword in that department. Is this their attempt at petty pay back for a lack of sales or did the development team just forget what it’s learned already? We’ll know soon enough.
Stay tuned for our TGS coverage as we’ll post up information about Ninja Theory’s new game once it is announced.
