So is there any way of playing this outside of Canada or are the rest of us screwed?

Download it via QooApp (think of it like the GoG to Google Play's Steam), then lie to the installation at start-up and tell it you're Canadian.
It sucks, but Konami sucks for this bullshit 'soft launch' that's inaccessible to its biggest target audience.

I'm just waiting if it launches on global. LOL
BTW, what is the data size of the full game after installation and updates, so far?

Is anyone transcribing the dialogue or has already done so (preferably from the very start)? I only started doing it around III-3-1 and I intend to go all the way if no one else has.

There's a Tumblr user who has been screenshotting scenes in the game that I've been keeping an eye on for information.  Here's the link:

Nice, thanks! I'll proceed anyway since I'd like to flip through the game's dialogue at will, but I'll definitely use these for reference.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

The global launch is suspected to be happening soon in any case bc of the trailer drop a few days ago.
Hopefully means more content by then too.

I've been playing this outside of Canada thru an Android emulator.

If I had a coin for every time Simon apologizes in this game, I'd be richer than SCIV's Treasury Room.
Some hours ago I did finally beat the first Grimoire, and I have to say it has been a decent experience (aside from the fact that every character feels extremely heavy, especially when jumping). It's still worse than Harmony of Despair though

I’m assuming only canonical items are referenced in this game, but did they make any references to non or quasi-canonical characters such as Sonya or Cornell?  Any Lords of Shadows elements incorporated, such as a combat cross or the Belmont’s crest?

There's no references to things outside of the main canon, yet. At best I imagine they'd wink at the Kobe non-canon games that seemed to get added and removed every other timeline by Konami of America and Europe, though :P

Cool, so it doesn’t seem to be a thoughtless mashup.
