Cambridge, UK-based developer Ninja Theory has announced an office move and plans to "expand its development team rapidly and aggressively", following the signing of its PlayStation 3 title Heavenly Sword
by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. The title was one of those showcased at Sony's E3 unveiling of its next-generation console.
However, of particular interest to developers is the additional announcement that the development diaries written by 'chief design ninja' Tameem Antoniades for UK game publication Edge
are now available
to read at the Ninja Theory website, including an honest, unvarnished look at the tumultuous genesis of Heavenly Sword
Ninja Theory was formed late last year
by the original founders of development team Just Add Monsters, following the collapse of Argonaut, of which JAM was a wholly owned part. The developers at Ninja Theory most recently completed Microsoft-published Xbox multiplayer beat-em-up Kung Fu Chaos
, and have been working on Heavenly Sword
in various forms since early 2003.
