Pre-release copies went out a few days ago to editors, from what ive heard...
NOA has done nothing to the game outside edit the text to American standard English and put it back in its native NTSC format with some minor credit and box alterations.
They think they are doing "fans a favor" by releasing this game and aren't expecting to make any profit on it. They didn't even make separate box art for the US and Canada meaning that even the US version has French on the packaging. This is something you more commonly find from low print titles by niche companies, not Nintendo.
I am hoping we are able to surprise them with a sellout.
