June 3, 2011 Written by Cameron Teague

UTV Ignition Entertainment has announced today that El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is set for release on the PlayStation 3 in North America July 26th, with a European release set for September 9th.

With this announcement, UTV Ignition have also released a new trailer detailing the back story of the game along with a batch of new screenshots. Not only do we have all that to show, but this game will be playable at this year’s E3 so expect impressions from the crew here at PlayStation LifeStyle.

El Shaddai is a bible-themed brawler and it’s development is headed up by Sawaki Takeyasu, a character designer on titles like Devil May Cry and the fan favorite Okami. In the game you are tasked with looking for seven fallen angels, all in an attempt to stop a great flood from wiping out mankind. You will receive help from a Guardian Angel and four Archangels.

Enough from me, check out the trailer and screens below, then look for our impressions next week.
