Val's correct. But to a publisher pick the game up is unlikely.... To buy out a game without a large fanbase... Unless they manage to update the game right at that new stuff working out in asian versions of the game, buying TO is totally risky business.
But if the game comes back without database, forcing us to start from zero, I'd play anyway... However, I understand why most of the people around are annoyed about that possibiliy - i have spent just a few Reais in that game, while other had sent to the game an ammont close to 1k ... Or more...
