PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword now runs in RPCS3 emulator
Heavenly Sword was developed by Ninja Theory and released originally in 2007 exclusively for the PlayStation 3, this was due to Sony themselves publishing. Ninja Theory later went onto make more popular titles like DmC: Devil May Cry and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
Writing in the YouTube video description, the team mentioned how multiple major bugs have been fixed over June and July including frequent out of video memory issues and broken shadows. Their new footage of Heavenly Sword is a nice 60FPS, take a look:
They also mentioned that in order to actually run it at 60FPS, you will need to create a custom config for RPCS3. To do so they said to right click the game, and pick the “create custom configuration” option. Once there, “go to the advanced settings tab and change vblank to 120hz”. Additionally, by default the game uses the PS3 controller SIXAXIS for projectile aiming but this can be turned off in the settings.
Once again, amazing work coming out of the emulation scene and RPCS3 is open source too. Download it from the official website.
