Critically Acclaimed El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron HD Remaster Digital Release – Nintendo Switch! (April 28th

Today Japan crim Co., Ltd., is proud to announce that the 28th April, 2024 will see the release of ‘El Shaddai ASCENSION OF THE METATRON HD’ Remaster for the digital Nintendo Switch.


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.
