El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, in development at Ignition’s Tokyo studio, has a concrete release date: April 28th, 2011. A date hasn’t been announced yet for North America and Europe, but Ignition say one will be, shortly.

  • Every image for this games looks fantastical, simply stunning, and breathtaking. I had it not listed on my list of games to get this year, but if it gets a release in 2011 for CONUS, well I better add it up there.

    Speaking of release dates, is Trinity Zill… still coming in 2011?

    • Ladius

      Zill is out the 8th of february in the USA.

      • Chris Hansen

        I wouldn’t buy Trinity Zill O’ll until you try the demo on the Japanese psn
        To be honest, I thought it was a piece of crap
        but you may think differently
        Just a heads up; I thought the same way as you before I played it

          I liked it.

          I really wish they’d bring over the PSP game though

  • Arcm

    I ‘m really excited for this game. I don’t know why but the imagery reminds me of the recent manga arc in Bastard!! where he’s in heaven. lol

  • Aiddon

    good times, now announce an overseas date

  • joesz

    Seriously this game looks like a spiritual sequel to Digital Devil Saga.

    • That was my first impression of it too. Although it looked more Nocturne than DDS to me, but I can definitely see both.

  • PrinceHeir

    i’ll definitely check this :D

  • …Still can’t get hyped up for this game, despite it being breathtakingly beautiful.
