'El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron' (ALL) - New Screens

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is a 3rd person fantasy action title inspired by events in the Old Testament, in particular the apocryphal 'Book of Enoch'. Enoch, a brave and just human, is caught up in a pivotal battle raging between Heaven and the Fallen Angels.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is an epic original adventure inspired by an alternate telling of biblical mythology as narrated in the 'heretical' Book of Enoch, part of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The game has been developed by a 'dream team' internal Japanese studio whose former credits include iconic multi-million selling franchises such as Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, and Okami. Combining silky smooth combat and both 2D and 3D gaming, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is as playable as it is jaw-dropping to look at.

Though lacking their monstrous powers, he must overcome the Fallen Angels in order to save humankind from a great flood ordered by Heaven to wash away their twisted empire on Earth. In order to succeed, Enoch must use his natural combat skills and master a range of powerful Heavenly weapons under the guidance of the watchful Archangels. Heaven's true wild card is Lucifel, the enigmatic red-eyed angel, who is always in Enoch's ear with a word of advice and a line in dry wit. The tale combines adventure, humor, and horror, along with breathtaking beauty and heart-tugging emotion.
