Sawaki Takeyasu, creador original de El Shaddai, posted on Twitter the details of this port that comes to PC a decade after its release. The game was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to good reviews but few sales, which is why many consider it a cult game.
Above all because it addresses, in its own way, several passages from the Book of Enoch, a sacred book that is part of the religious canon of the Coptic church. Additionally, Takeyasu was also a character designer on games like Devil May Cry, Okami, and Fatal Frame, so he brought his distinctive anime style to this game.
Inspiration in the bible
In this title we control Enoch, a scribe who must get the seven fallen angels to prevent the flood that ends humanity. The mechanics are third person combat with melee weapons and the gameplay is mainly based on robbing and arming enemies.
The weapons are Arch, Gale and Veil. The first is close combat and allows Enoch to float down when jumping, the second allows you to fire projectiles and transport yourself quickly from one place to another with a swift movement and Veil is a powerful weapon capable of breaking through walls and objects.
With these weapons we will advance through the game until the end accompanied by some angels who will assist us. All characters will have their original Japanese voices and new English voices, as well as text in other languages (including Spanish).
El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron will go on sale on September 1 on PC, although there is already controversy over its price. It will cost 40 dollars and, although the first two weeks we can buy it for 32, the controversy comes because it is not a remaster with graphic improvements, it is a direct port, so it will look the same as in 2011.
In any case, fans of the title now have the opportunity to play it again, even if it comes at a premium.
