El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Release Date

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
UTV Ignition Entertainment have confirmed that the action adventure game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron will be released in Japan on April 28th, 2011. The game is "inspired by an alternate telling of biblical mythology as narrated in the ‘heretical’ Book of Enoch, part of the Dead Sea Scrolls".

In the beginning, God appointed a group of angels to watch over the world. These angels were called the Grigori. Over the ages they became fascinated with humans.

Until succumbing to temptation they abandoned Heaven for Earth. The Heavenly Council decided to send a great flood to stop humanity from proceeding down this unintended course.

But a human named Enoch, who served as a scribe in Heaven, objected. The council agreed to rescind its ruling if Enoch could capture the renegade angels. And so begins Enoch's long quest to save the world...

This is a tale of ancient times past; a tale that was not permitted to be handed down through the ages...
The development team comprises of individuals who have worked on franchises such as Devil May Cry, Resident Evil and Okami. Director Sawaki Takeyasu previously worked as the art director on Okami.
