El Shaddai Media Teases 'Ascension of the Metatron'

BOOM widget 134441 Publisher Ignition Entertainment has unveiled its angelic action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron at E3 with an attractive trailer and round of screenshots, showing off its cartoon-ish art style and revealing a little of its story "inspired by events in the Old Testament's apocryphal 'Book of Enoch.'"

"In the game," Ignition explains in a press release, "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."

Developed internally at Ignition's Tokyo studio by a team headed by Okami and Devil May Cry artist Sawaki Takeyasu and Capcom veteran Masato Kimura, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is due out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011.
