I think you're failing to realize the game is 100% done and ready to be printed. It would've probably taken a month for them to get the game on Western shelves, but Sega decide to condemn the game. In all honesty, it's probably a plan on Sega's part to have sales for the game falter, and use it as an excuse to cut Platinum loose.
