Wait, is this game out already?

I just signed onto PSN Asia and the Chinese/Korean version of the full game popped up. I'd get it, if not for the lack of reviews, and if it's English (even if it's Chinese/Korean, they sometimes mean there's an English translation bundled in too)

Well, it's out in Japan, but I doubt it's in English, since it came out a few days ago and there's been no announcement (to my knowledge) of a release outside Japan.

according to some guy on some other forum, the chinese version has english menus but little else.

Though, I am unaware whether the Japanese release, which has been out for a few days, has an English option.

Given the lack of a hard release date, the chances are small. If there was one, I imagine a release date would be announced for a few months from now or something.

@Video_Game_King: Apparently, people have noted that it does have some English menus but little true English translation. So, it is definitely one to wait for.

At E3, they were showing off an English version of the game though; so, that's encouraging.

English menus in Japanese games are more common than you'd think. So yea, it's gonna be a while.

@Video_Game_King: Oh, I am definitely aware of that. Which is why people who speak English should wait for the eventual English releases, which are apparently quite close to completion considering what they showed at E3.

For what it's worth, it's the number one selling game in Japan last week. I have a feeling it'll be out here around September. Looking forward to it.

Over 100k FW sales. So great for the developers, and the best Playstation C.A.M.P. result to date. Top pomeranian.

I'm having a lot of fun with this game. Yes everything is in japanese but the menu's. Which makes doing some of the challenges a bit hard cause I don't know what they are yet. I plan on trying to S rank this game cause it is that fun, english or not.
