El Shaddai website teases new project, ultimate angel

Those who finished Enoch's journey in El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron know Ignition Games left the door ajar for even more religiously themed adventures. Now, seven months following the game's North American release, Ignition is hinting at exactly that with a new website teasing a future El Shaddai project.

Spotted by Sileconera, the website features artwork from the unannounced follow-up, as well as the words “coming soon” and a question that translates to: “Who is the ultimate angel God is speaking about?” With Archangels Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, and Michael already featured in the first game, that pretty much covers the bible's usual suspects. Your guess?

Takeyasu Sawaki, a designer on the first El Shaddai, is linked to the new project, along with an overseas video production company called Imagica Digitalscape. If the website isn't hinting at an actual game, we could be looking at early artwork for an El Shaddai film. See why Ignition's original deserves a sequel in our El Shaddai review, and let us know where you think the franchise is headed.

    Female Enoch and Lucifel? GJ is all I can say. Now just wait for E3 for a Fabulous trailer. I've said it before, but the original game's trailer reached meme-tastic quality in Japan FYI. ”大丈夫だ、 問題ない” = Meme

    Yay! glad to see this is getting a sequel! ^^ ...That being said... that artwork confuses me, why is there two girl in the same exact clothing and pose as Enoch and lucifel..? That's just weird.

    I enjoyed El Shaddai, certainly worth the $20 I payed. I'd go for some more.
