The CG Heavenly Sword movie is out soon, and so a new trailer has been released.

The video below, hosted exclusively by IGN, shows protagonist Nariko slicing and dicing many various enemies, accompanied by one of those voice overs. The video is called: "Why Nariko is a badass."

"There's a new girl in town," the narrator grunts, "and her name is Nariko."

"You'll wanna be on her good side."

The Heavenly Sword CG animated film is based on the 2007 Ninja Theory-developed PlayStation 3 exclusive. It's due out digitally worldwide and in cinemas in some countries in spring 2014. It stars Anna Torv, who voiced Nariko in the game, Alfred Molina and Thomas Jane.

It's the work of Blockade Entertainment, which is also working on the Ratchet & Clank movie.
