Video Game: El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

A game for the PlayStation 3
and Xbox 360
, developed and published by Ignition Entertainment, released on April 28, 2011. The game consists of staff geniuses such as Takeyasu Sawaki, who was a character designer for Devil May Cry
. The game is loosely based on the apocryphal Book of Enoch
. The story follows Enoch, a human scribe in heaven, who must round up the fallen angels that are corrupting the Earth to suit their own ideal image of perfection.
