"The creation of El Shaddai has truly been a long and exciting journey,and yet there is still much to be done to prepare for the game's launch," said director Sawaki Takeyasu. "So far, the public's response to the game has been very encouraging, and I hope that the final product will greatly exceed their expectations. I also look forward to having time to consider the future direction of the El Shaddai franchise."
El Shaddai was listed among my most anticipated games of 2011, and with good reason. It has a distinctly pretty art style, a unique Biblical inspiration, and interesting 3D combat/2D platforming gameplay. Games like El Shaddai don't come along often, and I just hope it sells more than five copies.
