Ignition revealed today that it is working on something new for the El Shaddai franchise, launching a teaser site for what it is calling “El Shaddai New Project 2012”.

The teaser site shows off five new characters, including Japanese text in the middle that Andriasang translates roughly to “Who is the ultimate angel who God speaks of?”

For those of you who are unfamiliar with El Shaddai, the first game – Ascension of the Metatron – was released in 2011. The artistic style of this third-person action game was highly appealing (I would even call it the “Best of 2011” in terms of pure stylish design), but critics ultimately noted El Shaddai’s lack of depth, enemy variety, and over-simplistic combat system.

Personally, I felt like the whole thing would have been a lot better if the developers had not chosen to leave out the heads-up display (HUD) until players finished their first play-through of El Shaddai. I reviewed the game last year, handing out a 6.7/10 and concluding by saying “…if [El Shaddai] was as fun to play as it is to look at, it would be one of the better titles in the genre.”

All things considered, it will be interesting to see how this “El Shaddai New Project 2012” shapes up, and if it ends up being the sequel that the stylish action title deserves to see. Let us know how you feel in the comments section!
