More On: Senua's Saga: Hellblade II

I find it’s rare to talk about mental health. Even more rare, when a video game developer wants to talk about mental health, time to head for the door. On May 21 Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will release on Xbox Series X|S and PC. Dom Matthews the Studio Head at Ninja Theory has just posted a blog and video on the Microsoft page, talking about, “the contribution of our mental health consultants, with the release of ‘Senua’s Psychosis’, a feature video that details how, by way of collaboration, Senua’s experiences of psychosis in Hellblade II are rooted both in neuroscience and in real lived experience.” This seems like one of those times that someone is trying to do right to the people who purchase their game to be as truthful and true to the source and experience as they can be. You can watch the entire video below.

If you are looking for more information you can head to Hellblade II mental health page. Hellblade II will relase on May 21. They also revealed that it will cost $49.99, not have a physical edition, and be a similar length to the predecessor.
