Yeah, I found out just now. Here's hoping that they will do a good job like they did with the first EU Maximum Impact (except for the horrible 50HZ mode, but I always play in 60Hz). I wonder if we will get Another Day as a bonus disc.

I just hope they actually stick to that release date.
I'd hate to have to wait untill Autumn NEXT YEAR like we did with SamSho5 and KoF2003.

Please Ignition, prove my fears unfounded.
