El Shaddai - 大丈夫だ。問題ない。
Over the past few weeks nicovideo has been filled with these parodies of this trailer from E3 for El Shaddai. I wasn't really aware of the game until I started seeing these so I decided to see what exactly the game is about. The game is based around the Book of Enoch and follows an angel known by 72 names, but for now it's Enoch. The first thing that stands out is the beautiful art style, and it's being designed by Takeyasu Sawaki who was responsible for the art in Okami and Devil May Cry. The game also will have a mix of gameplay styles, with the majority being third person exploring and battles and the rest being side scrolling sequences. I'm still not completely sold on the game based on the trailer, but it's definitely unique and something different from the typical shootershootershooter games rehashed every year. Even if it turns out horrible at least I've gotten a laugh from all these videos.
