If you weren't already excited for Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, Ninja Theory has now released a new development diary showcasing the insane "level of realism" and attention to detail that's going into this second entry.

This video focuses on how the team has gone about crafting the protagonist Senua in the next game, with a mention towards the end of how these same techniques are being applied to the rest of the cast.

"By capturing the likeness of real actors and handcrafting costumes using traditional techniques, we’ll achieve a level of realism that will further immerse you in our story. In our latest Development Diary we explore how we achieved this with Senua."

Interestingly, when the team was scanning Senua's actress Melina Juergens just a few years ago, it was only about a "gigabyte or so of data" to build her digital replica, whereas leading up to the sequel, there are now "terabytes of data" for every minute of a recording.

You can get the full rundown about the whole process in the 4K video above. Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 will be launching on Xbox Series X|S at some point in 2024.
