Forgot all about this. What's the latest on it?
Haven't heard shite since PAX last year.
Last I heard was Q1 2013. We've still got time for that to happen.
From what I've seen, the Japanese version has global servers and language options, but you still have to deal with a bunch of Japanese in order to sign up. I was able to do it once and get into beta, but I didn't play long because everything was in Japanese and I had no idea what buttons and abilities meant.
I'm hoping that we hear something about it at PAX East in late March.
