El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron recently found a warm welcome in Japan, earning a Gold Award in Famitsu magazine as well inspiring diners to serve El Shaddi-themed dishes, and is building quite a name for itself stateside. To get gamers ready for its release later this summer, UTV Ignition Games has sent along some new shots showing Enoch making (and fighting) his way up the tower of Babel. Inspired by the Old Testament’s Book of Enoch, the surreal action-adventure title was developed by a team lead by industry notables Sawaki Takeyasu (Devil May Cry) and Masato Kimura (Okami, Viewtiful Joe).
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.
