Holy crap moment!  
Reading Play Magazine. US publication. Gackt game. Available March. WTF!?!?

Towards the back of this month's play magazine, they had a bunch of game previews lined up back to back. They were mostly quickie one-shots with a screencap and a short description, but I recognized Bujingai.
Now.. they said the game was available March, but did not specify if it was available in the US in March.. or what.
Now.. while I would be hopeful that it would be within the next week, I really doubt it.

They DID, however, also feature many other games on that page such as Suikoden IV... and if the game magazines thought it was interesting enough to cover, there's a good chance we'll be seeing it here sooner or later.

Gamespot has a lot of stuff on the game already, though, and they're saying tentative US release is May. I couldn't find a pre-order screen on ebworld, and they're usually really good about release dates. If I'd known, I would have checked at work, too.

IGN is also saying May.
Things look good.
Gackt videogame... plays like... Devil May Cry? Onimusha? etc? I like those games, so there's a good chance this will be a lot of fun to play, and Gackt will just be a novelty for me to giggle at.... like usual >..>

Its no surprise really... Red = part of the sega collective. Red worked with Taito to make Bujingai. Bam! = owned by the ex-head of Sega of America. So no real surprise that a huge game like that would hit stateside. It plays a bit like Prince of Persia with little bits of Devil May Cry. Its just rediculously short. (Like a 2 or so hour game) I just hope they don't redub the voices (Since Gackt did the main voice, the voice of Jet from Cowboy Bebop did the main Villian and the Heroine was played by Maaya Sakamoto) Plus I hope they didn't drop his song Mind Forest from it ;-; That song 0wnz

2 hours?!?!? T..T
Oh well. The price I pay for fruity love.. lol
Thanks for sharing the developer info! I had no idea. I figured that it had a little bit of a chance.. if only for looking like a cool Devil May Cry/Onimusha-type game.
I didn't look into the rest of the voice cast, though! Spiffy!
More than likely, it'll get dubbed over.. but if we're lucky, they'll leave a Japanese voice option in. A lot more games are starting to do that now, and I think it's really cool :)

Well there is good hope it WONT get dubbed thanks to the relatively small operation that Bam! is. Though they might drop Gackt's song in favor of a selected Score track based on licencing costs.
