With a striking art style and a story based off of an ancient Jewish religious work, Ignition's El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is the sort of game that could go in any direction review-wise. As it turns out, it did.
In upcoming action game El Shaddai, a pre-fall Lucifer guides players. He's got God on speed dial and looks cool. Now, he's big-headed and "cute". Oh dear.
Action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, with art by Takeyasu Sawaki (Devil May Cry, Okami) will be out in Japan on April 28.
Wardevil, a game five years in development that was reportedly cancelled last month, is for some reason now being brought back from the dead and given a new name.
Ignition Entertainment shuttered its Florida studio earlier this month, deep-sixing the game the 70 developers were building, which was an FPS rumored to have cost $20 million. Video of the game, "Reich" has surfaced.
It's trendy now for Japanese games to try to appease Western tastes. El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron does not care about what's in.
Wardevil was one of the first current-generation games to ever be shown off. That was back in 2005. Back when it could still be called an upcoming game. Now? We can call it a cancelled game.
Action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron might have a wordy title, but Japan is totally enamored with the game's hero Enoch and his flowing locks. You could say Japan has a crush. Time for a meme!
Single-player story? Who needs that! Downloadable title Blacklight: Tango Down has multiplayer. But can the game hold its own with the retail heavyweights?
The second part of Ignition's epic trailer for El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron gets up close and personal with Lucifel, a suave archangel destined to become the foremost fallen. Oh, and porklings.
This snowy, super short teaser trailer for El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron has appeared on the internet for you and me to look at together. So let's do just that.
