Do you remember the dark ages of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 generation when lots of interesting games didn’t make their way to PC? El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron was one of these lost gems, but it seems that this status won’t last long, as developers Crim revealed today that the gorgeous action game is finally coming to PC in mid-April 2021.
Here are some screenshots, courtesy of Games Press:
El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron combines many genre elements with its rich and detailed storyline, its glorious anime style graphical presentation that changes dramatically as the player progresses through a totally mesmeric experience. With the recent rise of the graphical novel games, what is offered within El Shaddai goes far beyond these confines in that action, strategy and platforming are just a few of the challenges and exciting dangers that unfold.
The story is inspired by the apocryphal Book of Enoch, and follows a scribe seeking seven fallen angels to prevent a great flood from destroying mankind. He is helped in his quest by Lucifel, a guardian angel in charge of the protection of the world who exists outside of the flow of time, alongside four Archangels: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel.
