    El Shaddai being delayed to August 16th isn't that bad at all. On the contrary, that means that we'll get even more details to get excited about! Today, Ignition released a new trailer for their upcoming action game El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron.

    The trailer features several enemies including the Fire Nephilim (shown right) and Azazel, and what seems to be an amazing motorbike scene! Sounds good, doesn't it? You can view the trailer below, and don't forget to leave your opinion in the comments!

    The official release date of El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, an upcoming action video game, is set on July 26th 2011. Gamestop and Amazon think otherwise however, as they've both changed the release date to August 16th, 2011, exactly 3 weeks later. This might be a coincendence, you say. It would indeed be, if Amazon and Gamestop wouldn't have both changed the release date on exactly the same day! This might mean that we'll have to wait even longer for the game to finally be released!

    Joystiq already contacted Ignition Entertainment, the game's developer, for more details.

    As the game has already been delayed once and has been in development for nearly 4 years, I can wait another 3 weeks. What about you? Leave your opinion in the comment…
