Players Can Now Experience the Same Demo Being Showcased on the E3 Show Floor In Their Own Homes Via the Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation®Network
LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Booth #5500 -- UTV Ignition Games today announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) that a playable demo for the stunning upcoming action title, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, is now available for download on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation® Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The demo, which is the same version playable on the show floor at E3 this week, allows players to bring the thrill of the ultimate video game expo into their own homes and get their hands on El Shaddai before it streets on July 26 [US].
In the demo, players jump right into the game's third chapter where protagonist Enoch enters the Tower of Babel and faces Ezekiel, the first of seven Fallen Angels whose souls he must capture in order to prevent a great flood ordered by Heaven. In this level of the tower, designed by Ezekiel to express her obsession with nature, players will be immersed in an element-inspired, gorgeous and constantly moving watercolor world, and must traverse the level's fantastical 2D and 3D platforming segments. Additionally, they will be introduced to some of the game's key characters, get a further glimpse into the rich storyline and experience the simple, yet surprisingly deep combat system that will appeal to gamers on every level.
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 mesmerizing 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 will be showcased at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo on the show floor at Ignition's booth: 5500 in the West Hall. Contact Chrissy_Kelleher@bhimpact.com for an appointment or additional information.
