Developer Crim has slated the release of the Nintendo Switch port of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron for April 28th in Japan.

The third-person action game directed by Sawaki Takeyasu was published in 2011 by UTV Ignition Games for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Protagonist Enoch employs multiple short and long-range weapons to battle his foes as he traverses stylized cel-shaded, watercolor environs, engaging in three-dimensional battles and traversing 2D platforming segments.

The El Shaddai music score is by Monster Hunter series co-composer Masato Kouda and Resident Evil 3 remake co-composer Kento Hasegawa. The 61-track digital soundtrack is available for purchase through Steam and streaming on Apple Music, YouTube Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.
