If you haven't heard anything about the marvelously bizarre (and beautiful) Ignition Entertainment import, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, do yourself a favor and check our previews. The game was originally set to arrive next week, on July 26, but now both Amazon and GameStop are listing an August 16 release.
The game's Wikipedia page also now shows the changed release date, so it must be true. We've requested some clarification from Ignition on when El Shaddai will be hitting stores, just on the off-chance that the Internet is wrong. Stranger things have happened.
