    Between the game being subbed-only and only available digitally, I’ll probably wait for a huge sale on this one.

    I think they are taking a risk with this game and thats why they aren’t going all the way as to make an English and Physical release. Gonna buy anyway so I might as well buy it as soon as possible to show that it is definitely welcome on the vita.
