Heavenly Sword prequel vid

Up on Internet and PSN.

With the game due out in a matter of weeks, Sony has begun the countdown to Heavenly Sword's release by kicking off an animated series of back-story shorts on PlayStation Network and the Internet.

You can watch the first (Legend of the Sword) on the Sony US blog or download a 720p HD version (147MB) from the PlayStation Store. Another four will follow before the game's 12th September US release.

SCEA marketing manager Mark Valledor, blogging about the vid, says "we took a page out of 'Clone Wars', because that series kicked ass", also drawing attention to a parallel "making of" video series that focuses on various bits of production. A video related to that is also on the PS Store.
