Day 1 from me.

I can't seem to find anywhere but is it releasing physically? I'd assume yes since it says pre order from Amazon and gamestop. If no, I'm importing the US version for sure

Around the GTA
Might check it out for dlc if it's good. Waiting to see how much differentiation there actually is gameplay-wise between this and the older release (don't really care that much about localization it doesnt affect gameplay in a game like this) + are the new characters actually worth playing with. I can't imagine that the new chars are gonna have any real defining abilities.

Honestly this is a fun game but the story really isn't a highlight for me. If I'm right, some tacked on scenario with a sprite change that I'd have to pay for on top of actually buying the game doesn't sound too amazing to me.
