I don't think I can say this enough, but with each new trailer for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice I don't think that August 8th can get here soon enough. Ninja Theory just keeps impressing with it all and this latest trailer for the game does exactly the same. Yes, we have a new trailer for the game again here and while they skipped out on E3, this completely makes up for it all as it came close enough for it all. Sure, I'd have loved to actually play a small slice of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice out there, but given that this is also an experience to be had outside of a story and game to be played, I'll take it for now.
In the following trailer, of course have some good headphones or sound system ready, we get another glimpse into the sanity of the titular character here for Hellblade. In fact, more than we've seen before, more of her sanity seems to be in question as it sounds like she may not know if she is dreaming, in someone else's dream, actually awake and experiencing everything, or any other multitudes of things as the swirling voices make it feel completely surreal and questionable on our end as well. Just listen close and see what I am talking about and if you have the setup as mentioned earlier then you may know even better than most as to what could be going on here.
Another interesting thing to note here is that this trailer is listed as the Hela trailer. Hela being an alternate name for the Norse goddess Hel and the ruler of the lands of the same name. This could just be a fun title for the trailer here from Ninja Theory for Hellblade here, but it could also be a full reference to a location Senua is or thinks she is in in this part of the game. It certainly looks and sounds like it based on what is being described, but it would be a bit out of place given the main mythology and religion that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is supposed to be tapping into. I may be off on that, but I found it interesting to note none the less and take in while we wait the next few months.
