This week’s Famitsu scores are in, and El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron has received its first ever judgment. The notorious Japanese publication has given the Book of Enoch-based game a 9, 8, 8, and 9, resulting in a total of 34/40. Not a bad score for Ignition Japan’s first game.
Additionally, the magazine’s also rated Patapon 3 for PSP, awarding it a 9, 9, 10, and 9 (37/40).
El Shaddai is out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan late this month, with a North American release slated for summer. If you’ve yet to give the game a go, a demo is currently available on the Japanese PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
