Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE - one of the directors shares message for launch

This comes from Mitsuru Hirata, one of the directors for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE...

“Come to think of it, Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE release date is this week on 24th isn’t it! For various reasons we had to change some outfits, contents of events and vocals, but I think the outfits of the overseas version are quite cute! If you live overseas and own a Wii U by all means buy the game!”
