Did you catch the quick flash of the red figure Enoch summons? That’s Uriel, one of the four Archangels that guide him along his quest. Ignition also released a bunch of colourful screenshots, which you can check out below.

  • Day 1

  • Holy mother of holyness. We must all buy this game. It looks so pretty.

  • Of all the dates, Im already getting the Angel Beats Blu-Ray, Catherine, FMA Brotherhood Part 5 Blu Ray, and Soul Eater Blu Ray. I like this but I wont be able to day 1 it, may have to get it around the holidays if it is still in production for sale and available.

    • It’s the September buy for me and I’m still in the same boat as you, too much in a too short time, I have no other choice but to buy it a bit later. >_<

      You disappoint me

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Can’t think of the name Metatron without thinking of SMT.

  • Day one.. if I’m able to get this job I’m interviewing for today.

  • “September 9th in Europe”

    Are you sure that’s early enough?

  • leadintea

    “It’s as if Lady Gaga made a game”?

    Why’s that a good thing? And I thought the characters were supposed to have English accents?

    • idrawrobots

      I guess I won’t get this, I don’t like that Gaga.

    • puchinri

      Since people like to pretend she’s a creative visionary, it’s supposed to be a great thing, I guess (I’d like to heartily disagree, but any hype they get I guess…). 

    • Aiddon

      just because the actors are British doesn’t mean they’ll use their native accents. Jason Isaacs was in Avatar: The Last Airbender for example and he used an American accent

  • “It’s as if Lady Gaga made a video game”

    Did they really just say that.

  • Visually it’s interesting but for sound it wasn’t very impressive. Also I’d prefer to see more of the game than lines quoted out of context from magazines.

  • neo_firenze

    I’ll pick it up due to the timing – other than Catherine on the same day, there’s nothing else coming out in July and the first half of August that interests me. 

    I played the JPN demo and though it was solid, I wasn’t overly impressed.  Nice visuals, but the gameplay was pretty standard (though well done) DMC clone stuff that didn’t really wow me. 

  • *Face palm*
    This is why no one should ever read gaming magazines.
    Y-you know what? People should just stop reading magazines altogether.

  • imaguni

    Seems like I will be living on my PS3 all summer with all these games… o_o

    And I love how cheesy the trailer is lmao.

  • puchinri

    I’d actually be pretty insulted by the Lady Gaga comment. And will be getting Lucifel’s sexy Japanese voice too? I’m loving how colorful those screenshots are too. I am excite. Maybe they’ll finally know what I’m talking about when I go into Gamestop now.

  • PrinceHeir

    looks gorgeous :D

    didn’t mind this game, but the more i see, the more i appreciate it’s beauty :)

    gonna be a busy year in 2011 :P

  • “Enoch, are you sure that’s enough armor?

    I’ll take the best you have”

  • Nice, I though we would have to wait more to get this one.

  • Darkrise

    I don’t think I’ll buy this day 1… Can’t really get into Enoch’s character design but still, I played the demo and it’s a great game but I’ll hold off till another time.

  • Zero_Destiny

    That Voice Acting is so Superb!!! <3 Very excited. I've got a feeling that this will be one of Ignitions' best release. Can't wait to hear more. Game looks fun. And that Lady Gaga line is funny. lol I don't care what anyone says, it still makes me laugh now. ^_^

  • Aoshi00

    I want to pre-order this.. wonder why it’s still not up on Amazon yet even the release date is set…

    Hope it would have dual track like the Jpn demo, even though the Eng. VA is well done, it seems like the mouth movement was matched to Jpn… and also Miki Shinichirou..

  • YsyDoesIt

    Summer and fall are already so jam-packed.  But I’ll still find something to unload to get this.  I can’t believe the sleekness of the battles in that video; I hope it’s truly as fluid with the gameplay as Bayonetta is.
