I'll never understand why they didn't go with a simultaneously worldwide release.
It worked wonders for Monter Hunter World and Final Fantasy XV.
Might as well do marketing right once, and have it be impactfull everywhere at the same time.
Instead of splitting things up and doing smaller pushes a few times apart.
Building hype, letting it die,... and haveing fans wait forever for a english release, while hype dies down, isnt optimal imo.
Like Im sure with a simultaneous release, there would be better overall sales,
and you could do a more effective push from marketing, resulting in even better sales.
