Meet Lucifel, Other El Shaddai Details
No, that’s not him. What’s wrong with you? That looks nothing like a guardian angel. That’s a total pic unrelated if I ever saw one!
But if you do want to see what Lucifel looks like, just watch this video:
In it, we see what Lucifel actually looks like in the game–a normal Japanese man. Well, I guess he looks a bit sleazy. He wears blue jeans and uses a cell phone! Are those details to his character supposed to be some sort of social commentary? We also get to see the moment which I described on my last post on El Shaddai, where he offers you a set of armor but you refuse and consequentially, get your ass kicked. I think he also gets a call from God in the video, but I’m not sure. Basically, what the hell.
Aside from that, you can also see the combat up close, as well as some beautiful platforming segments in that video, so make sure to take a look.
Edge-Online has a preview of El Shaddai which also sheds some new details on the game. Here, we learn that the combat system is governed by a rock-paper-scissors dynamic that applies to the weapons that Enoch can use. You can only use one weapon at a time–there’s no weapon inventory–and in order to use different weapons, you’ll have to take them from defeated enemies. Once in your hands, God pimps your weapon up and makes it more holy-like. We also learn that the music changes tempo depending on your actions on-screen, which, in conjunction with the visuals, may make El Shaddai a very interesting experience.
Stay tuned as we bring you more details on El Shaddai: Insert Pretentious Subtitle here!
