El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is on its way to Europe next year, courtesy of Ignition Entertainment. The game is coming to the 360 and PS3 and is developed by a team comprised of people previously involved in some well regarded games, including Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry and Okami and that in itself will be enough to peak many gamers interest.

It’s a third person action game, with a nice art style and takes inspiration from the Old Testament, namely the apocryphal ‘Book of Enoch’. The story is a mixture of horror, adventure and humour. It focuses on Enoch, a mere human, but one that’s involved in the ultimate battle between heaven and the fallen angels. Which could be a bit of a tricky task, if not for the fact that he’s accompanied by Lucifel, a red eyed angel, who it appears plays a Navi and Issun like role, offering Enoch advice and also, on top of his natural combat skills, Enoch will gain access to some heavenly weapons throughout the game, upping his survival rate considerably in the battle to end all battles.
