World Mental Health Day Donation Totals Over £60,000

World Mental Health Day Hellblade Donation Totals Over £60,000

We are proud to announce that by donating all of the Ninja Theory proceeds from the sale of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on World Mental Health Day (October 10th) to charity, we have raised £60,798.80 (approx $80,000/€69,000) for mental health charity Rethink Mental Illness.

Speaking of the donation, Tameem Antoniades (Ninja Theory co-founder and Chief Creative Ninja) said ‘We’re proud of our fans for showing their kindness towards others who, like our hero Senua, need our help and support to continue the good fight. Our donation to Rethink Mental Illness will impact many people’s lives in a meaningful way and help shed light on their darkness. Our small gesture has made a big difference. Thank you.’

Rethink Mental Illness exists to support and campaign for those severely affected by mental illness. They help millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes and changing lives. Jemima Woolgar (Rethink Mental Illness Events & Community Fundraising Manager) said ‘Your generous donation will make a big difference to the work that we do here at Rethink Mental Illness. The donation is the equivalent of employing two of our full-time colleagues to answer calls to our advice and information line, helping people newly diagnosed with mental illness get more information and support – which is fantastic.’

Hellblade Accolades Trailer

Today we’re happy to be sharing the Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Accolades Trailer – a very different kind of accolades trailer.  Firstly, the trailer is created entirely from fan screenshots captured in the Hellblade photo mode. Secondly, instead of highlighting choice press quotes, the trailer highlights some of the many touching messages received by Ninja Theory since the launch of the game in August.

In addition, we are today announcing that all proceeds received by Ninja Theory from the sale of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on World Mental Health Day (October 10th) will be donated to mental health charity Rethink Mental Illness. This is true for sales on PlayStation 4 and PC. For clarity, we will be donating all proceeds Ninja Theory receives from retailers/platforms after sales tax and platform fees have been deducted.

 

Rethink Mental Illness exists to support and campaign for those severely affected by mental illness. They help millions of people affected by mental illness by challenging attitudes and changing lives. We are delighted to be supporting this important work with this donation.
