E3 2010: El Shaddai announced

UTV Ignition has announced it will be bringing its fantasy adventure El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron to Xbox 360 and PS3.

The game has previously announced for a Japan release, but will be formally announced this week for North American and European release. It is due to hit shelves in 2011.

El Shaddai is inspired by the events of the Old Testament, telling the tale of Enoch and his role in the battle between Heaven and the fallen angels.

Its development was headed up by former Capcom and Clover execs Sawaki Takeyasu as director and character designer and Masato Kimura as producer.

When developing this title, it was imperative that we give these immensely talented game designers total artistic freedom,” said UTV Ignition Entertainment chairman Hassan Sadiq.

And they have truly risen to the occasion by forging an adventure that combines a compelling, universally relatable storyline with deep gameplay and a uniquely expressive visual style.”
