Oh, and download file size is 45 mb. I think that about covers it. Hurry up and wait now.

Is there any reason why this wouldn't hit the US App Store?

Punchbox Studio has very many games in the Chinese market and yet only five in the US store. It may not have an interest in foreign markets. But then again a lot of Konami's games are, but not all. The only thing that confuses me is why did Konami allow them to release it instead of releasing it themselves. My "conspiracy theory" senses are tingling.

In my opinion, most of these type of ports fall into that class, the XMen arcade game, Atari, Activision, etc. I really don't expect this to be any different. It won't suck but it won't be stellar either.

Its probably because Konami is testing the water. Many publishers does this too and they usually release a game in Canada or NZ first to gauge the interest (and fixing up the bugs and polishing up the release), before publishing it to the rest of the world.
