I got the US version from my regular shop here in the EU some time back.
I reckon most Atlus fans here in the EU have done the same, or had it imported.
Why do companies keep on releasing games over here so much later despite the fact that the platform they're on is regionfree? Do they need to translate it all for the non-english speaking regions?
I wouldn't bother tbh, the longer wait just means they'll miss out on sales because gamers will get the US version.
