Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II has received a new behind the scenes video where Ninja Theory explains in detail where will be the next chapter in the series.

Streamed live through the official YouTube channel of Ninja Theory, on the 23rd of July, the video reveals that Hellblade II will be set in Iceland. The idea of the change of scenery was born from a trip of the founder of Ninja Theory, Tameem Antoniades, after the release of the first game.

“I was struck by the beauty of the place, and it is then that I came to mind the first thoughts to make a sequel,” said Antoniades.

Following this flash of inspiration, he and the rest of the team have travelled to the country to do a more in-depth study of the landscape, the natural elements, and other factors that could make Hellblade II the best sequel possible.

“I wanted to go back there again and see the country, to see if I had created a good setting for the game,” he said. “And rather than use Google images or concept art, I thought that it would have been much more interesting to adopt an approach to film directly on location.”

To this end, the team traveled through the country collecting data, and audio to make the game as authentic as possible.
