Hmmm, "Asian" versions usually have English subs and the option for english menus. Might have to import (that's what a lot of people did for Demon's Souls).

"Hmmm, "Asian" versions usually have English subs and the option for english menus."

Since when? Almost all "asian" versions are just the Japanese version in a different box. In fact, it isn't uncommon for DLC downloaded from the Hong Kong PSN store to work with the Japanese version and vice versa.

With that being said, you would be a fool to import this game. Since it's for the Vita, you'll need a Japanese or Asian account on the system to actually download any DLC. Also since it is released by Sony, there is a good chance the US will get it down the road.

You should check the article, because the producer already said it's only contain japanese & chinese language. But i'm 100% sure Freedom Wars will get localize for the west.

Technically yes but most Japanese consider japan an island nation separate from the continent of Asia itself.

Almost. It's pretty cheeky of the Japanese. Think of it as how UK sees itself from the rest of Europe, lol.
