We kind of expected this one to see a localization, even though it's taken longer than most expected. When FUN! FUN! Animal Park's demo released in Japan, it included an English option. This lead many to believe the game would see release stateside. Now half a year later, it seems that's finally happening. GameFly currently has the title listed as releasing on March 28th, 2019, with Aksys handling publishing duties.
