Developer Crim has started development on a Nintendo Switch port of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, following the release last September of the Windows remaster on Steam.

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

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 via Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited.
