When is El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Coming to PC?
Unfortunately, there’s no information about a precise release date or window regarding El Shaddai‘s release. However, it seems like the development team is excited about this upcoming port of the game. As Sawaki Takeyasu states:

But, what is El Shaddai? For those who are uninformed. The game is a hack and slash with platforming elements. In it, players take control of Enoch, a scribe who seeks seven fallen angels to prevent a great flood from destroying manking. Yes, this game has a biblical story. If the screenshots aren’t enough of a clue, it also has some cool graphics to boot.
You can see it in action below:
In the game, Enoch will have to use heavenly weapons to deal with enemies. However, these weapons can become dull over time, so Enoch will be required to purify them constantly to restore their power. Or, you know, just steal weapons from enemies.
The game’s PC port has been confirmed as far back as 2020. However, it seems like the developers have waited until the 10th anniversary of the game to bring it to PC. Does this game tickle your fancy? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
