    I think if they put off a US release for too long they’re probably just shooting themselves in the foot for no reason. Right now its in beta, they’ve got no particular need to have beta exposed to a western market, where DBZ IS popular, but where its popularity pales in comparison to its popularity in asia. They’ve got all the beta testers they need. When the game is finished, it really depends on how much they marketing effort that they want to put in to cash in on the western market. It could make a decent income, but there might be a lot of overhead that we non-mmo-business types aren’t aware of.

    All said, I think the only thing that might keep it from coming here could be licensing issues. If no company in the west licenses it and the asian companies don’t want to expand their market share to the west, then we’re screwed.
