Hellblade will be Heavenly Sword devs' darkest game yet - hopefully not just literally

Hellblade from Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, DmC) will tell the tale of Senua, a character based on a Celtic goddess. Very little is known about Ninja Theory's version of the woman, save that she'll face dark and nightmarish creatures as she descends and fights through both a physical and personal hell. Or as Ninja Theory product development manager Dominic Matthews puts it in the video below, "in a direction that's a bit darker than what we've done before."

Hopefully Matthews doesn't just mean literally darker, as much of the gameplay shown takes place at night or in a twisted, shadowy reality. You've got such a good-looking character model and art style, Ninja Theory - make sure we can see them!
