"We were trying our best to get the game out at that time, to get it into the hands of users as early as possible,"

"We saw some titles--some from our own company and some from others--which didn't have a very good launch because of a lack of content, or whatever it was, that caused players to bash the product."

Harada and team wanted to avoid a similar fate, deciding to continue forward with its original content plan - "even if that meant the game would come a little later."

"Although this is the first time we've actually announced a date, it wasn't always June. It came through a process and we made some hard decisions and that was the result." 'early' was probably March or April from your average person's perspective, so we're not going to try and sugar-coat it. We realise it's not 'early,' I'm so sorry!"
