Good news and Bad news

Good news: There will be a demo released on the 31st of May
Bad news: Western release date has been changed from July to TBC

The demo will contain online play and features:
  • Four-player deathmatch
  • Four-on-four deathmatch
  • A portion of the story mode
  • Six characters from the total roster

Hopefully, it won't be delayed too long but, I fear it may be a western copyright/trademark issue with some of the game content like Iron Brigade. I'm only speculating though!

More info can be found here.

Always good to hear about a demo!

Though it's very strange that it was postponed. The game's done, ready to be printed but they're holding it up. Maybe it is a copyright issue, but it seems to me that they'd clarify with the community what the issue is. The again maybe not. I had slight suspicions that the game wouldn't be coming to the west, but a demo for western audiences just about debunks that theory. And I'm sure they would've canceled a western release much earlier.

So it's NOT a western demo. Odd. I can't imagine they'd just scrap an entire western release... Right? Maybe they're waiting to see it's success in Japan, I don't know.

It seems the demo is for the JP version only.

It's easy to make a Japanese account; there's a bunch of tutorials online.

Apparently there's going to be a free Gold weekend from the 1st to the 3rd, so you'll be able to download it with a Japanese account and play online with it (I've seen one user complain that he can't find matches, being in Europe, so it may be necessary to play with the Japanese account instead of your usual account.)
Edit: Apparently in the retail version of the game you can change your search region, but in the demo the section for modifying those values is locked, so yeah, basically unless you make a new Japanese account that gets Gold (I think only the first three accounts created on a console get this privilege) you're only going to have the next three days to play the multiplayer component of the demo.
Your main account can get INVITED to games from any region though, it's just matchmaking that is region-locked for the demo. Look on the Platinum Games forums or GameFAQs to find people.

As for acquiring the game itself, it seems like Platinum is hinting at us to import the game. Unfortunately they can't confirm if it's region-free without upsetting Sega (since they're in a contract with them and would be taking away sales from the American branch by suggesting we import,) but an admin from Platinum said that the game *should* be region-free. You can guarantee yourself the pre-order bonus at AmiAmi, which is also selling the soundtrack.
Edit: Ugh, nevermind turns out that it's not possible for the 360 version of the game to be region-free.

It's up on Xbox.com (you'll have to switch the region at the bottom left of the page) but not available on the dashboard for some reason.

Is there even any English in this demo?

Because if there is I have no idea how to change languages.
