Kimura got them and posted them in the Dev.Update thread. I think he got them from the German Dev.Update.

Cartrix I think it was said they were announcing the Japanese localized version at a tarde show on October 5th. They're planning to put a Pacific map or two, plus the two Japanese fighters on the Japanese CD to help out sales in the land of the Rising Sun.

Yeah,I agree. I am wondering one thing though:will the map(s?) be historically accurate or just generic with random islands and other "Pacific-y" stuff?

I would be willing to bet random pacific type stuff. The amount of resources needed for full blown historically accurate maps probably will not be supplied for this bit. Although they are doing Normandy and the Ardennes so who knows. Hope to find out next week

Just guessing but I think this is the new online map Oleg mentioned a while back.

Personally I hope we get a Japanese voicepack. Don't want Zero drivers speaking German do we?

I have a feeling it is the online map. Surely,we'll get a Japanese voicepack,it'd be a little silly not to.

Uh, which ocean are you talking about? I know that in tropical Caribbean waters it takes a hell of a storm to turn the seas grey and the shorelines brown. I'd say 95% of the year shallow water is turquoise and deep water is dark blue with various shades in between. The character of the sea varies greatly with geography.

Bearcat99,

Now what?

We're allowed to re-create every aspect of every war from every age but now we have to leave out the Japanese Air Force and nuclear weapons because it's not politically correct?

If flying with a swastika on your tail and shooting Americans and Brits is socially accepted by the masses here, then I'm allowed to go after the Rising Sun. After all, we are hardly engaged in what one might define as a peaceful pastime.

If we are to be truly humane, we should be playing with "swim simulators" mimicking whales escaping the Icelandic fleet. Nes ce pas? (Actually, that sounds like fun. And I do give money to Greenpeace.)
