El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron's director and character designer, Sawaki Takeyasu, has secured the rights to the game's IP.
Takeyasu's studio Crim, which he founded in 2007, just announced it negotiated the El Shaddai IP from Ignition Entertainment.
"This acquisition entails prequel, sequel and all other derivative rights of the existing game," the official release read. "Crim will work with the Entertainment industry to develop a potential El Shaddai business moving forward."
While some titles take their cues from movies, the Old Testament’s Book of Enoch inspired Ascension of the Metatron. In the game, you star as Enoch himself, a human called to heaven in order to help God round up seven fallen angels in order to prevent the flood that would wipe out mankind.
