The Latest Trailer For Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is as Beautiful and Mysterious as Ever

Ninja Theory is one of those developers whose name is a symbol of quality.

I remember laughing my head off playing Kung Fu Chaos on the original Xbox back when the studio was known as Just Add Monsters; being blown away by the visual prowess of Heavenly Sword when it was released for the PlayStation 3; and becoming utterly absorbed by the multiformat Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. DmC: Devil May Cry, the reboot of the popular Japanese action game series, remains my favourite Ninja Theory title, however, though that may change with the imminent release of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

Much of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice remains a mystery to me at this point, and I’m really glad about that as it just adds to the excitement I have to get my hands on the title. What I do know is that it’s got a story based in Celtic and Norse mythology, but it’s one that’s personal to Senua, dealing with themes of mental illness. It’s a brave move by Ninja Theory, but one which I’m sure they’ll pull off with aplomb. I mean, just watch the latest trailer for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice below and tell me it doesn’t make your hairs stand on end.

Available digitally on 8th August for PlayStation 4 and PC, to say I’m looking forward to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is an understatement. Promising a deep, dark story and brutal, uncompromising combat, I dare say it might just prove to be one of the most accomplished and meaningful titles of the year.
