I'd say you're already seeing it. Look at Sony's relationship with Capcom right now. Other than that you have Star Ocean, Persona 5, Tales of Zestiria, Dragon Quest Heroes, etc. Then you have the multiplatform titles. The PS4 already looks like a much better console for Japanese games than the PS3 ever did.
FWIW there are a lot of rumblings about the game showing up that I heard as well. But like anything, things can change - even super last minute. But I do think it'll finally resurface this year. It's been pushed back several times already.
