Intriguing Japanese action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron will receive a demo months ahead of release.

Siliconera reports Ignition plans to release a demo on April 14.

It’s not yet clear whether the demo will roll out on international console networks, or just the Japanese equivalent, or whether both consoles will receive it.

It’s probably worth a little foreign-account-creation malarkey to get your paws on it, though; the unusual game has been described as a unique piece of artistry, and has piqued interest with its angelic themes and startling visual style.

Ascension of the Metatron releases on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan on April 28, with a US release in northern summer and European dating to be confirmed.
