Ignition Entertainment just unveiled El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron this year. The first playable build made its debut at Tokyo Game Show, but Ignition’s Japan studio has been working on it for awhile.
Masato Kimura tells Inside Games he has been developing the game for three years. At first Kimura was the director and the producer. Kimura is just the producer now. Sawaki Takeyasu, another former Clover Studios member, is the director.
Ignition’s Japan studio has 120 staffers working on El Shaddai, which is slated for release next year on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
