Not enough bible in your games? Damn right! Until we get Grand Theft Moses this is the next best thing. Think of this game as the Old Testament + Acid Trip + Jpop Male Idols. From the Producers of Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, and Okami. El Shaddai is a very unique looking game, very much looking forward to it.
Ignition Entertainment has announced El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, a new fantasy action game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from a team headed by former Clover Studios developers.
El Shaddai (which is a Judaic name of God) is a third person action game that's evidently -- and, we're guessing, probably very loosely -- based on the Old Testament, specifically the apocryphal Book of Enoch. As such, its main character is the eponymous Enoch, a human who gets caught in the middle of the battle between Heaven and Fallen Angels. To defeat the Fallen Angels on Earth, Enoch uses "natural combat skills" and "powerful Heavenly weapons," with the press release promising a tale that combines "adventure, humor, and horror, along with breathtaking beauty and heart-tugging emotion."
El Shaddai is being developed by a team in Tokyo, headed by Sawaki Takeyasu as game director and character designer, and Masato Kimura as producer. Their previous credits include other stylish and visually inventive action games like the Devil May Cry series, Viewtiful Joe, and Okami.
