El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron images

Stylistic but how will El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron play?

The art style and coloring is like something out of a dream. In the upcoming El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron gamers take control of Enoch, a young man chosen by God to go to heaven and serve as a scribe on the Council of Elders. He is soon tasked with preventing Gods plan to flood the earth by becoming an arbiter and pursuing the Grigori, a group of fallen angels. That’s the setting; Enoch must save humanity from a great flood by capturing the Grigori who were originally appointed to watch over earth. The action is from a side, 2D view at times, playing like a platformer while other times its third-person with a Devil May Cry feel and utilizes a style that seeps religious. The sound, the look and feel is all so relaxing and the religious themes may not spark the debates and objections of years past but there will still be some who object.

What will set El Shaddai apart from other third-person adventures is how it utilizes this unique content and theme. The style is there but how will the substance play out? Time will tell but for fans of anime, both story and style, this is one very interesting title to keep an eye on.
