El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron trailer looks wicked

This just went way up on our list of games to own this year

There are so many awesome games coming out this year for major franchises that it's easy to overlook the new IPs that are also promising. Don't overlook El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron.


Ignition's new action game looks incredible, as you will see in this new trailer. The game hit Japan in April, and will launch in the UK and Europe on September 9.

"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'" explained Ignition in previous PR.

"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."
