It bears mentioning that I stumbled across a Japanese blog post about FusionFall. I certainly think the game could have appeal in Japan. Even though many of CN's characters are not big over there, the designs and style translate well. It will be interesting to see as we get closer to an international release.
Anyway, I translated the blog post, which was pretty funny. Though the poster mentions that "Real work is 2008 schedule, but it seems that presently beta edition is open (no charge)," he also states the following: "With temporarily, under the clothes of number 5 the spats." Okay!
General tone of the reader responses appears positive, with mentions of PPGZ, Teen Titans, and other properties of note.
