Shout out to Wen-M and being awesome about responding to messages, too. ^_^;
That is something, and cool move by Wen-M to reply.

It now seems highly unlikely that the physical rewards promised in the November 2017 update will arrive in January as indicated (they were indicated for December or January)

Maybe we get some news during or after this?

Seems that Anima Project is going to attend.

Actually that expo wouldn’t ease my mind, because that’s my big concern - that AP is primarily only interested in the video game(s) and not the RPG.

And especially not the English language version of the RPG.

As pulpcitizen has been saying, AP needs to deliver a lot concerning Gate of Memories. We are almost mid-February, and there is no indication of a new date for the physical rewards and the Nameless game.

Until AP finishes with the rewards, I don't believe they will tell us anything about the RPG line.

EDIT: I'm gonna edit this, because I don't want to do double post:

According to AS, give it 6-8 months... hopefully.

Thought I'd post to say - I intend to run a new Anima campaign in about 6 months.

I'm really hoping Gaia 2 will get an English release by then.

Still waiting to spend my money on this game :)

(I'd also like to buy Core Exxert in English - as my core rulebook is starting to fall apart).

Let's see if we can make a list of things to do for AS:
  • Gate of Memories DLC.
    Physical rewards from both Kickstarter Campaign.
    Relaunch the English RPG line.
    New book in Spanish.
    Gate of Memories Switch Port, maybe.
Mind you, I have made this list according to what they have said on both Kickstarter and Twitter (Switch port was mentioned by them on Twitter). If this list is correct, then I don't think finding a English Publisher should be a priority, at least until the issue with the physical rewards has been adressed. After all, according to the last update they were releasing them in December 2017/January 2018. Now, we are on March, and there is no word about it.

What I'm trying to say is: Don't expect anything from the RPG line until Gate of Memories has been completely finished, since unlike the Kickstarter campaign, they have made no promises about the books.

You're probably right...

On the other hand are these actually competing?

An English language publisher and translator wouldn't necessarily slow down the other rewards; mostly that's outsourcing right?

The problem is that AS is a small team. Only 3 people worked on the GoM, and those 3 are the ones behind the Nameless DLC. They probably don't have resources to work at everything at the same time, so at this point they need to work things one by one.

I believe Fantasy Flight Games still has translation rights, which makes things even more complicated from a legal perspective. Mind you, what I'm saying is the best interpretation of current events; the other interpretation is that they still haven't found anyone who wants to pick up Anima...

From YouTube comments:

1. Questions about Lore? Go here http://xenosaga.wikia.com/wiki/Xenogears if it sounds similar, you got the answer.

2. New edition! Everything rewritten from scratch (despite the fact the entire ruleset has not been released) but, don't worry, it will be totally retrocompatible... Please refrain from mentioning the compatibility issues between Arcana Exxet and the former magic system.

3. GoM2 announced. Yes we will crowdfund it. What? We haven't delivered the GoM's Kickstarter rewards, yet? Ahahaha... That will be solved... Sometime...

1. I mean we already knew the similarities between Anima setting and xenogears in general, I mean especially Imperium is totally taken from xenogears.

2. Sure a new edition...but I mean...I would like to see new books as in Organizations books, books about the gods etc... not just this is anima core book 3rd edition or something.

3. No comment
