Not satisfied with the rave reviews El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron has been seeing on home consoles, Ignition Entertainment will soon be bringing their legendary master work to Android devices as well. Screenshots were revealed yesterday courtesy of Famitsu showing the Android version of El Shaddai to be more of a sidescrolling action platformer (think Mario Bros. but with a lot more butt kicking) than the 3D action of its console brethren.

Storywise, the game is (very) loosely based on the non-canonical Judeo Christian Book of Enoch and puts players in the role of Adam’s great grandson, Enoch, who takes on the role asked by God of hunting down rebellious fallen angels.

Still no release date but Famitsu is also reporting that the game will see an Xperia Play optimized version as well. Can’t say I’ve ever been more jealous of that device than right now. As always, we’ll keep you posted.
