Ignition Entertainment Japan has begun teasing a new project for the El Shaddai franchise. A newly launched teaser website hints at the new project with some brand new concept art. The artwork shows five different characters standing next to each other with text that reads “Who is the ultimate angel who God speaks of”
The first game in the El Shaddai series El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron was released by UTV Ignition and Konami (in North America & Europe respectively) late last year. The game was the brain child of Takeyasu Sawaki, the character designer behind 2006’s Okami and the Devil May Cry Series.
Reviewers praised the game’s spectacular and colorful graphics and the easy to grasp combat system. The gameplay featured a mix of 2D platforming and 3D action stages. Hopefully this new game continues both of these practices.
As soon as more information surrounding the next El Shaddai game we’ll be sure to bring it to you.
