Following a discreet announcement late last year, The Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron now has a PC release date. Coming soon, the sleek anime slasher arrives on Steam on September 2nd.
The Shaddai received various criticisms at the launch, mostly because it’s pretty weird and there are people who can’t cope with it. The action gameplay varies between third-person combat and 2D navigation, but the artistic style is arguably the most appealing part of El Shaddai. Yes, it has an undeniable influence on the anime, but it takes an unusually psychedelic approach.
He Steam page confirms you’ll need a controller to play the console-centric game, which was released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011. The $ 40 game will be available for $ 32.39 for two weeks from release, but if you’re looking the deluxe package that includes an art book and a soundtrack, you’ll probably want to get it right away – for two weeks it will be discounted from $ 78.97 to $ 39.25.
When The Shaddai was released in 2011, there was basically no hope that the game would hit PC. But since then, our platform has seen it a large influx of ports, which is in fact brilliant news.
