Well considering the US came out like last week it is no surprise. As for the Japanese one, I think I will be placing another order from Lik Sang for it, the English VA's are ok but they sometimes are irritating since they used the same ones as Command Missions. Zero to me sounds like a Cali surfer not what I pictured Zero's voice to sound like.
Also I will get to watch a better intro and J-Pop to boot.
Yes it is in English first, they seem to want to get the idea across that Japanese do not always get the game first. Of course this means there will be some special edition box set of Rockman X8 when it is released in Japan. Then we complain we did not get it
