"We did not plan originally for the release in North America. However, we received the opinions that they would like to play this in US more than what we expected, so we decided to do it," Igarashi said in an interview with Siliconera. "The characters are totally designed for Japanese market, but I think there are lots of users who comprehend this game, so we look forward for the release."
