El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron HD heads to Switch next month

Gamers looking for a treat after Easter need look no further as El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron HD comes to Switch on April 28! The Japanese developer crim Co. announced that next month will see the digital release of the action title. While unavailable to pre-order now, Limited Run Games handled the physical version of the game earlier in the year. The game will also include some extra materials as well as improved framerate and other quality of life features.

About El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron HD

Developed by a hugely-talented, Tokyo-based team, headed by the legendary Sawaki Takeyasu (Devil May Cry), El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, draws players into a rich storyline inspired by events in the Old Testament’s apocryphal ‘Book of Enoch.’ In the game, players take on the role of Enoch and must harness his natural combat skills to master a range of powerful and Heavenly weapons under the guidance of the watchful Archangels. Through a mesmerising combination of combat, 2D and 3D platforming, Enoch must deliver the souls of the Fallen Angels and spare the world from a great flood ordered by Heaven.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron combines many genre elements with its glorious anime style graphical presentation that changes dramatically as the player progresses through a totally mesmeric experience. 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.

El Shaddai is all about its simple controls. You can experience the profound action by pressing a few buttons and the same goes to the in-game jump action and battle scenes. The intuitive controls can lead you to the best gaming experience throughout the game.

  • The Switch version is visually more beautiful and fluid.
  • included as bonus content are the post-ending novels “Lucifer’s Fall Chronicles of Ceta” and “El Shaddai ASCENSION OF THE METATRON ArtBook”.
