El Shaddai

A Switch version of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is in development, director Sawaki Takeyasu revealed today. That news was shared in a message posted on YouTube.

Additional information will follow on April 28, 2022. That day happens to be El Shaddai’s 11th anniversary.

Below is some information about El Shaddai:

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, originally released in 2011, is a unique third-person action adventure filled with a deeply artistic world-building, outstanding aesthetics and thrilling battles. Experience an incredible mix of 2D-like platformer action and a colorful 3D world in an exceptional setting.

El Shaddai’s artistic setting aims to provide a canvas-like world that changes in an organic way as long as you progress your adventure. The world keeps changing constantly in the most creative and innovative ways, perhaps even nostalgic.

You’ll only have four buttons: jump, attack, guard and weapon stealing. But this simple way of proceeding is deeper than one can expect. There is no need of manuals or walkthroughs to get into the game, but if anyone is ready to deepen into the mechanics, the game will offer a profound, precise and rewarding timing-based action experience. The motto of El Shaddai’s gameplay always was to be “easy but profound”. Many of the game’s mechanics such as the offense-defense systems were carefully created to provide the best possible game feel.

The game received the “Future Game of the Show” award in the Tokyo Game Show 2010 and the script, noting some of the characters lines, got a gold mention on the Internet Buzzword Awards 2010 as well. The original aesthetics, the uniqueness of its concept and the feeling of being ahead its time (2011) were widely discussed on the international media.

And here’s a trailer:

As mentioned above, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron originally released in 2011. Crim that readied an updated version of the game for PC last year.

We’ll let you know when we have more information about the Switch edition.
