This newspost is not correct!! Konami obtains worldwide license and will publish the game (for now) only in Japan.

Worldwide release, yaaaaaay! That should at least mean localization to English, and perhaps (can I hope for too much) a European release?????

Well yeah ofcourse, but it's all too easy to say 'worldwide' and mean only Japan and the USA...

Anyways, I'm looking forward to it.
