UTV Ignition Games today announced the awe-inspiring action adventure title El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron will be available in the UK and European territories on September 9, 2011. Following a wildly successful launch in the game’s native Japan at the end of April, gamers across the world will be able to experience the jaw-dropping art style, captivating storyline and innovative gameplay when it releases in September for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
To celebrate the street date announcement, UTV Ignition released a brand-new trailer and series of screenshots that reveal gameplay and combat details that have yet to be seen.
In the trailer, viewers are introduced to Uriel, one of four Archangels assigned to watch over and guide Enoch throughout his quest to capture the souls of seven renegade angels who have abandoned Heaven for Earth. In times of especially stressful combat, players will be able to summon Uriel and deliver even more powerful attacks against the game’s mightiest foes.
Developed by a hugely-talented, Tokyo-based team headed by the legendary Sawaki Takeyasu (Devil May Cry), El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, draws players into a rich storyline inspired by events in the Old Testament’s apocryphal ‘Book of Enoch.’ In the game, players take on the role of Enoch and must harness his natural combat skills to master a range of powerful and Heavenly weapons under the guidance of the watchful Archangels. Through a mesmerizing combination of combat, 2D and 3D platforming, Enoch must deliver the souls of the Fallen Angels and spare the world from a great flood ordered by Heaven.
El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron will be available in the UK and European territories on September 9, 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
By day I play video games, test video games or just simply write about them. By night I fight crime on the streets of London as a masked vigilante known only to a select few … damn SECRET identity. Could never get the hang of that.
I’ve been writing about video games for about 10 years now, and playing them for even longer, starting off with a Spectrum ZX passed down to me in about 1988. Yes, I used to play games that came on cassettes. Yes, they were AWESOME!
I’ve been writing for God is a Geek since October 2010 and loving every minute of it, aside from that I write for my own website and work as a video game tester for Testology. So, yeah, I’m pretty much living the life of a gamer, and I don’t intend stopping anytime soon thank you very much.
Unless I run out of money, then we might have a problem.
