Apparently they didn't start localising the game until it was almost ready to come out in Japan.

Atlus are so freaking slow its crazy.

I can't believe the international release is nearly half a year away. You would think they could have prepared a simultaneous release given the massive history of delays.

I wonder if it will ever get an NX port. Come to think of it, I'm surprised they didn't attempt to make a Vita version considering how well P4G sold...

I'm not gonna watch it, because it might spoil the last member's persona in the art book. at least I want that to be a secret dammit.

Yeah I wouldn't want to be the PR man for Atlus.

Trying to defend some of their decisions is an impossible job.
Correction pr man for any of atlus other departments not in Japan. They just don't give a damn. Wasn't surprised at all with the date we got. Which is weird because didn't golden do better over here? Or at least very good

I think Atlus really doesn't care about anywhere outside of Japan.
Its quite sad.

Someone is streaming the game right now on youtube.

I saw it under game details when I was looking at my preload info.

Paying $150 for a soundtrack and an artbook i can't read wooooooooooo.
To be fair, the artbook looks to have next to no text in it anyway, aside from a brief message from Soejima at the end.

I saw that too, but they only streamed like the first 8 minutes (which we've already seen), and then they got to a blocked scene and couldn't show anymore. While this is a cool preventive measure now, I really hope they patch it post-release because I love taking screenshots.

If you've been paying attention to official media until now, there's nothing spoil. It's nothing but art of the properly-revealed party members, some of the NPCs (most of the cooperation links are missing), and promotional art that's been used up 'til now. Goro isn't in the book at all – not even his regular portrait.

Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed with the artbook. It has no new art, and in a limited edition where that and the CDs are basically the only items, and it's still really expensive, that's a real shame. If this soundtrack ends up only having a few tracks I'll be really upset, especially since it'd be such a waste to use five discs on what could fit on one.

It's all the hype of a big, anticipated game release with none of the actual game for five months.

hooray
