LIVESTREAM: RSG Plays El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron Demo on JTV
If I had to take a guess, I would have to assume that you’d never seen an El Shaddai before and probably think the Metatron is Sony’s newest flatscreen television. In truth, El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron is the latest game from UTV Ignition Entertainment and I’d be lying if I said I’ve seen anything quite like it before. Loosely adapted from the book of Enoch, which is part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, El Shaddai is the story of Enoch and his mission to recover an artifact known as the Arch in order to prevent a massive flood from destroying mankind. During your time as Enoch, you’ll encounter many baddies that you’ll dispatch with a God-of-War-style combination of precision and brute strength and traverse a vast array of colorfully designed environments filled to the brim with platforming goodness.
But why listen to me ramble on about the game when you can check it out for yourself? Our partners in crime from the Retroids Podcast Network, RedSunGamer.com, have played the Japanese demo and streamed the whole thing to Justin.tv. If that’s not enough for you, go set up a Japanese PSN account and grab the demo for yourself. If you have no idea how to set up a Japanese PSN account (and/or can’t read Japanese), check out this awesome walkthrough courtesy of PSNStores.com
