El Shaddai New Project 2012 teased

But is it a game?

Ignition has teased a new El Shaddai project for release this year.

A Japanese teaser site for something called El Shaddai New Project 2012 is now live. As reported by Andriasang, it shows five characters behind text that reads: : "Who is the ultimate angel who God speaks of?"

As Andriasang points out, this may be unrelated to video games (there are El Shaddai jeans, apparently). An update is promised soon.

El Shaddai launched in the UK in September 2011 off the back of a 9/10 Eurogamer import review.

"El Shaddai has everything you could ever want from a Japanese game," wrote Keza MacDonald. "It has a transforming robot made out of motorbikes, a moonwalking dance master throwing shapes in front of the screen whilst you try desperately to fend off his minions, doves with boxing gloves for heads that gently but assertively butt you out of the air mid-jump, and so much more."
