Good news: Steam release, which seems like a pretty strong indicator of it getting a proper Western release too.
Bad news: Although it's a follow up on Genesis, all the UC stuff is gone, just these four AU timelines - pretty unusual for the typical G Gen pattern.
Good news: It is being as thorough as Genesis was with all the various side stories and such for every timeline. If there's anything missing, there may be DLC.
Speaking of DLC, I wonder if they'll do something cheeky like have G or X units added that way (or if the third one in this current series is really gonna be "All Weird Stuff" and have those and Build Fighters or whatever)
