imageUTV Ignition is re-releasing El Shaddai in Japan. The reprint, titled El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Encore Edition, is slated for release on May 17.


The news comes from stores stocking the title, which will retail for 2,940 yen ($37). Aside from having Lucifel on the cover, it doesn’t sound like Encore Edition will have any differences or extras not found in the 2011 release.


El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron Encore Edition might be UTV Ignition’s last retail game too since they sold Dragon’s Crown to Atlus and canceled plans to publish Fractured Soul.

    Ah good ol lucifel just wanted to let you know you weren’t wrong about clearing the game in 7 hours ^_____^

  • I just beat the game two weeks ago. The visual is beautiful and very abstract, overall story of this game is okay I guess but the ending is quite meh, gameplay is quite challenging but doesn’t have many variation of attacks or combo. It’s okay game IMO.

    I guess this is like the cheaper Platinum Hit ver.. too bad there’s no extra contents, otherwise I would double dip since I loved the game.. I just bought the Heaven’s Gate artbook recently too.. I like it when they didn’t shrink the cover and actually give it new cover art like Deathsmiles Platinum or Valkyria Chronicles Best of ver..

  • Why the hell on 360?! :/
    If Lucifel is the main character I want it on PS3 too.

  • Jacob Rodriguez

    So there well be no new content? So is this pretty much sort of like a greatest hits sort of re-release but they are just not branding it as such? I guess I can understand that…

    But… Just in Japan? 360 only?

    Travis Touch..oh, wait..

    misleading cover is misleading?

  • AnimusVox

    I dont get what they’re trying to accomplish with this….

  • dahuuuundge

    Lucifel fights Metatron in his battle to overthrow God with the help of Demifiend.

  • Ahh, that art is so beautiful just like the rest of the game. I’m a little surprised that it’s Lucifel this time though. I would love to play a game in his perspective or something. Too bad it’s for 360…JP 360 at that :/

    That box art, especially how it was cropped on the news feed reminds me of Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes. I saw the image and El Shaddai and thought it was some weird cross over for a split second.
