Watch Enoch Mix It Up With The Arch Weapon In El Shaddai

By Ishaan . March 31, 2011 . 8:27am


In addition to the Veil and Gale, Enoch also carries a weapon called the Arch in El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron. The Arch looks like a bow but it acts like a sword, and Enoch can use it in a number of ways, including as a magical whip or to perform air combos.


Not sure how that works? Check out the new gameplay video Ignition released above. Japan will see El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron on April 28th.

  • Looks nice, seems like the game shines with dark environments with those gorgeous effects. I wish it did have a visible combo counter.

  • if you still don’t get it you can all way watch giant bomb ex quick look on it where Shane Bettenhausen (mangod) explain every mechanics of the game.

  • It looks soooooo preeeeeetty, omg.

  • Happy Gamer

    i dunno why but this game reminds me of Beyond Oasis for the Sega Genesis. Nothing similar or anything it just reminded me of it.

    I went into Gamestop last week and El Shaddai wasn’t in their system at all. Is it still coming out this year here? The official site says Spring or April, I’m sure. And Japan is getting their’s so soon.

    • Its coming out in the US, it just has no release date yet. Wasnt it the focus in the most recent interview they gave on this here site?

      • puchinri

        Lol, I know it’s coming out here Tsuna, but I’m trying to figure out if it’s actually coming out this year, and especially Spring. But I don’t know about that.

        I just know that the site says Spring, but the guys at Gamestop told me you can do pre-order pretty much as soon as a game is announced here (although they have been wrong a few times, but they’re usually on top of things at that store). So I don’t understand why it wouldn’t be in their systems at all if it’s supposedly coming out this season.

        As an aside to my last comment, it also does not show up at all on Amazon. And heck, Amazon still has Monado up.

        • I was under the impression the retailers add the games when the Publishers allow them too and not out of their own volition. For example, Tales of Graces F, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, and numerous other announced games do not show up on either site.

          • puchinri

            Well remember, even F went up that same day, they just had to take it down (and even then, the cache worked). But even when a game is announced and there’s no official release date, they can just put Dec. 31st as a placeholder date. But you gotta admit, it is a shock that it’s not on Gamestop or Amazon even if it’s supposed to be coming out not only this year, but Spring.

  • そんな装備で大丈夫か?

  • Played this at PAX East. The controls were garbage. Hopefully they can tighten it up before release. And though I love the graphics, the art style is really ugly. They could’ve done something a lot more compelling with those graphics.
