E3 2011: 'El Shaddai' bestowed with new trailer, screenshots and release dates

Ignition Entertainment has announced its biblically-inspired 3rd person/2D platforming action game, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, will be arriving in North America on July 26th, and in the UK on September 9th. And in the event you've never seen a biblically-inspired 3rd person/2D platforming action game, the studio also posted this new trailer and a bunch of screenshots to serve as helpful primers:

Inspired by stories and characters from the Book of Enoch, a religious text associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls, the game follows the priest Enoch on his journey to find a handful of fallen angels and stop a flood from washing mankind down the drain.  

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is set to arrive for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Art looks very awesome. I'd be happy with a Bayonetta clone, that game was sweet.

    Art style is pretty.

    just so you guys know, there actually are two attack buttons(idk why they say there arent...unless only the japanese version gets 2 attack buttons haha) but I saw an entire walkthrough of this game with english subs...@foxyexplosion I think by that they mean the designers of the game were doing allot of drugs like her, but the design is AMAZING! and its a really cool game, you just need to give it time...also you get to see a guy talk to god on a cell phone! and that guy whos talking to god IS the save point! xD

    The demo's fantastic, and it's kinda like DMC/Bayonetta, but you modulate combos through timing of the single attack button in combination with guard, it's neat and different and has a good feel once you get the hang of it. Think I'm gonna have to change those voices to japanese if given the chance though, those english Voices were a little hokey

    @Chris I heard someone who played the demo say it plays a bit like God of War or, more closely, Devil May Cry (except without guns, obviously).

    The graphics/aesthetics are awesome, the combat looks rather turnbased or Dynasty Warriorsish sooooo.... no.
