The director of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, which also made its way to the West, has said that he’s going to be making a “major” announcement within the next two weeks. Takeyasu Sawaki mentioned during a panel at Tokyo Sandbox 2017 (translation via Gematsu):
Within two weeks, I’m going to announce a new mythical concept. It’s not indie, it’s major. Please look out for it. I’m pretty sure it will be covered by various media. It’s major, so I’m really not allowed to speak about it, but please look forward to it.
The El Shaddai IP was acquired by Sawaki’s company, Crim, from Ignition Entertainment in 2013. The action game’s first entry released in 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to positive reviews overall.
We’re not sure if Sawaki intends to announce another El Shaddai title or an entirely different project but we’ll keep our readers posted.
