We don’t know much about Senua’s Saga Hellblade II, what’s new from Ninja Theory for Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and Windows. Since its announcement at the Game Awards 2019, the information has come out with a dropper, and it is very unlikely that it will come out in 2021. However, its leading actress, Melina juergens, has posted a new video detailing his experience playing Senua.
He begins by explaining his difficult position at the end Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (2017), a very intense recording and for which she received many awards, but which left her without knowing what to do next. Juergens took a sabbatical time thinking about what to do with his life … which was short-lived, because Ninja Theory immediately called her for Hellblade 2.

Ninja Theory and Juergens were going to push Senua’s character to the limit, and that meant that the actress would have to be physically involved much more, performing all her stunts.
But he found it difficult to get in shape, as suffer from fibromyalgia, a chronic disease that causes pain in the muscles and joints, which often leads to fatigue and even anxiety and depression.
The video, edited with a lot of rhythm and many images of his training, explains how he worked with various trainers in different fighting styles, including a fencing choreographer who has worked on Star Wars and Game of Thrones.
Additionally, many of the Ninja Theory animators also trained with Melina to become the enemies of the game. We will see the results of this process soon on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC. If you liked his video, pay attention to your channel, as it will upload more episodes.
