New El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Trailer is Drool-Worthy

If you haven’t had much of a chance to check out this slick new title from Ignition Entertainment, you’re really missing out. It’s sleek, highly stylistic and plays pretty well, to boot. If you’re the type of gamer who really wants to try out something new and refreshing, this take on some Biblical accounts is probably going to be something you should develop an interest in.

The trailer focuses heavily on some battles with one of the character’s three main available weapons. I was really hoping they’d show off one of the 2D platforming stages, but I suppose that will have to wait. You can import El Shaddai from Japan when it comes out in April, or hang out here on this side of the Pacific when it looks like the title will see a summer release. Notice the lack of a UI at all in this game? Right, that’s because there is none until you unlock that feature after you complete the game once. Surprise! Hit the break to check out the trailer.
