Stellar Blade

Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer SHIFT UP shared a new developer diary for Stellar Blade, recapping the origins of the game.

The new dev diary includes several key staff on the game including director, art director, and writer Kim Hyung Tae – all of which talk up the inspirations for the game and how it came to life.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus the new dev diary:


The future of humanity hangs in the balance in Stellar Blade, an all-new story-driven action adventure on PlayStation®5.

Ravaged by strange, powerful creatures, Earth has been abandoned, and what is left of the decimated human race has fled to a Colony in outer space.

After travelling from the Colony, 7th Airborne Squad member EVE arrives on the desolate remains of our planet with a clear-cut mission: to save humankind by reclaiming Earth from the Naytiba – the malevolent force that has devastated it.

But as EVE tackles the Naytiba one-by-one, piecing together the mysteries of the past in the ruins of human civilization, she realizes that her mission is far from straightforward. In fact, almost nothing is as it seems…
