The lights are on
Sometimes, it's not just game consumers who clamor for sequels to under-appreciated titles. The creators are often just as invested in seeing their worlds fleshed out and the stories continue.
Fans of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron have reason to be hopeful for a return to the stylish and vidid world painted by director and character designer Sawaki Takeyasu. His new studio, Crim, has acquired the rights from Ignition Entertainment to the property.
Game Informer editor Kim Wallace spoke about her love for the game in our Memorial Day Cult Classics roundup. The original didn't find huge sales, but it does have a loyal following, especially in Japan. Perhaps a sequel will be just what Takeyasu needs in order to push El Shaddai to the forefront.
The full announcement is available on page two.

Good more dancing angels in jeans.
Saw this at Gamestop the other day for like $12. As much as I've seen posted about this I'm thinking maybe I need to get over there and buy it now.
Great news! Such an underrated game. I would love to see a sequel happen.
I really wanted to like this game .. I just couldn't. The art style is impressive, and I was iffy on the battle system, which could be fun sometimes, but I thought the game was a little boring and really confusing
Oh hell yeah! Love this game! check it out people!
If a sequel does come to fruition, the combat will need a major overhaul as I always felt that was by far the weakest part of the game, even more-so than the story.
Time for a trippy journey again.
I liked this game allot. It did get a little repetitive, but it was a good experience. I try to pick up a few artsy fartsy (as I like to call them) games every year. I got Majin & the Forsaken Kingdom, Asura's Wrath, and this game at the same time. I was pleasantly surprised with all three of them, but Majin and El Shaddai had to be played in short increments due to repetitiveness.
Yes! I was worried that stupid social game would be the last we ever heard from El Shaddai. Hoping they do a sequel to wrap up a few loose ends. I was one of the few people who liked the gameplay, it was fun. And the story was confusing, but I liked it towards the end.
Oh well thats brilliant news.Know if the same could just happen for Tim..
this game confused the crap outta me
Yay! Kim's magic powers have yielded a gift from the heavens! Would be brilliant with the Wii U.
Great news! I loved this game because it was so different and felt like a breath of fresh air, which was only accentuated by the trippiness. XD I actually liked the combat, but it could use a little tweaking.
