6w ago - Sony Producer Brad Foxhoven announced today alongside a video that a Heavenly Sword animated feature film is coming in 2014.
Below are the details, to quote: *This movie has not been rated.
Today we're proud to announce the Heavenly Sword feature film. This is a CG animated film based on the game that originally launched in 2007. The Heavenly Sword film is slated to be released digitally worldwide, as well as theatrically in select global markets, in Spring 2014. The film stars Anna Torv, Alfred Molina, and Thomas Jane.
Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest of vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophecy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another.
This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without slowly and inevitably killing them. For Nariko, it's a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.
I think it's important to understand where Heavenly Sword stands for us, as many of you know...
34w ago - Sony Senior Producer Nathan Baseley shared a video today showcasing the crafting of a Film Noir Mystery in Wonderbook for Diggs Nightcrawler.
To quote: Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler hits shelves this Holiday!
The team at Moonbot Studios are a highly creative team and master story tellers. Little Bo Peep, the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Three Little Pigs together in a film noir mystery?
Definitely not your run of the mill game. We're pleased to lift the curtain on the development of Diggs Nightcrawler in this first video diary.
With the book as the starting point, the world, the characters, the story and the interactions were born (or as Humpty would say, "hatched").
Diggs is a detective bookworm who knows he's inside a book, whose world is made from books, and who travels throughout the course of the game to different sections of the library, meeting unique characters along the way.
Of course, being Wonderbook, this is no ordinary hardcover. It is your controller as you tilt, rotate and turn the pages to help Diggs get the bottom of Humpty's downfall.
We hope you enjoy the diary - we'll have more in the coming weeks. And...
56w ago - Community Editor Victor Zuylen has posted up a video today which spotlights fighting the Helghast on film alongside a Killzone Intercept Q&A below.
To quote: Killzone Intercept is a fan-made live action short set during the ISA evacuation of Helghan in Killzone 3.
The 14-minute film follows a small ISA squad as they're ordered to prevent a large contingent of Helghast troops from intercepting the retreating ISA convoy. Outnumbered, the squad takes on the task with hopes of getting everyone off the planet alive.
Since its release on the Internet last week, Killzone Intercept has been a small sensation among Killzone fans and novices alike.
At the time of writing, the fan film has amassed nearly 170,000 views - and it's not showing signs of slowing down. We got in touch with director (and longtime Killzone fan) Brian Curtin to find out how Killzone Intercept came together.
PlayStation.Blog: Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get started making fan films?
Brian Curtin, Director of Killzone Intercept: I consider myself an Art Director/Graphic Designer by day and Independent Filmmaker by night. I've always been interested in the arts. Early...
