Well, this is something they have planned as bonus to the fans, so I believe it’s good to be done right. Good luck to them, this is a very good story and realisation.


Indeed :)


I was looking forward to it but guess I can wait :D


Responsible decision. I hope it is not money related.


It’s usually about money. If it’s really a question of quality, though I support them.
