Oh wow, this snuck up on me. I've been too consumed by the DBFZ train as of late.

For those going physical, where are the rest of you buying from?

I went with Sega's Ebten store. It had the best bonuses.

Day one patch and DLC: mentions a balance update (?) and bugfixes.
http://vo-index.sega.jp/topics/20180213_02.html

The most important DLC is the DNA/RNA colors from Oratorio Tangram for 540jpy.
There's also 5 separate additional story scenarios at 162jpy each, and something that makes all unlockable content available immediately for 108jpy.

Watari mentioned in a previous interview that "of course there will be dlc, we don't want to overwhelm the player with too much content at first. We are thinking of slowly adding more content starting with VR colors." This is a bit earlier and contains a bit more content than I expected.

And Chex, I think the colors are 540 yen each for DNA/RNA side.

I pre-ordered my PS4 version from Dengekiya using the FromJapan proxy service.

Wow, that's some impressive DLC right there. Is there any info on how to obtain the DLC? I doubt it'll be as easy as pre-ordering the game through a proxy service.

Only 2 days to go! Woo!

It's all done digitally through the PlayStation Network. That's how it's been for the past two console generations.

This means you'll need a Japanese PSN account.

I think I can get one of those, despite me having a US PSN account already.

Also, even though it's still February 14th here in the US, I'm seeing stuff on places like twitter and the Dengekiya store saying that the game has already been released right now in Japan. I'm pretty sure that means its already the 15th in Japan(I know about time zones).

Lastly, shamanic_beat, when you said "540 yen each for DNA/RNA side," did you mean "540 yen for each VR color scheme," or "540 yen for DNA and 540 more yen for RNA?" Or did you mean something else?

Most likely 540 for DNA and 540 for RNA.

Also, midnight JST is 9 am central on the previous day (without DST).

Game's up on Japanese PSN:

That is correct. I'm looking at the PSN store right now and it is indeed 540 yen for DNA and 540 for RNA.

They toned down quite a bit of the wacky **** from the demo, like being able to cancel melee startup into a dash instantly. Damage feels a bit lower, and VW doesn't charge nearly as fast.

Just paid for my Discipline 55 boxset from Amiami :banana: Hopefully the CNY holidays doesn't screw up the shipping process...

So just like we saw from the pre-release FAQ page, control rebinding only allows for buttons and you're stuck with the default dpad/left analog scheme.

...but what's this?
https://twitter.com/t_twinstick/status/ ... 3384317957
A company called Tanita is apparently making twinsticks. This company makes...scales and thermometers?

Before the game's release, there were a bunch of videos showcasing Watari and Tanita's president playing Oratorio Tangram on the Dreamcast with twinsticks, then the new game with the DualShock 4.
