  1. I'm pretty hopeful that the date isn't fake. It almost makes sense that a European release date would be announced before a North American one since, in this case, the game's NA localization is stymied by the fact that all of Tatsunoko's licenses have been distributed across a myriad of companies (ADV, Viz Media, etc.).

    It might be that Tatsunoko had more control over their properties in Europe?

    Still seems doubtful...but I'd love it to be so because then I could snag an English import copy. ;)

  2. I think being a license is ridiculous. They should just translate it and bring it over. We pay the money, not their. I dont understand why they need a license first. That's a liar!

  3. Copyright stuff is a big business.

    And I'd Hug you to death (ok to unconciousness) if it's true! (and maybe invite you to get here ;D... But you pay the plane ticket >.>)
