God of War III ideas were “too ambitious” for original games


SCEA Santa Monica’s concept artist, Cecil Kim, who is currently working on God of War III with the rest of the Santa Monica team, has spoke out his blog to say many of the gameplay addition in GOW III were originally envisioned to be included in the first two PS2 game, but turned out to be far to ambitious for that console. However, those ideas are now coming to life on Playstation 3.

Things that I am excited about [with] GOW III is that we are introducing so many new gameplay mechanics that were initially pitched during the production of God of War I [and] II,” he comments. “Some ideas being too ambitious to be executed years ago, only remain in our heads. Now I see Kratos doing things that were from our wishlist. We came a long long way to make this one all come together.”
