Also, we’re really looking forward, with our association with Capcom, to hopefully really break into a market that’s been difficult for American companies to get into -- to show our dedication to that, to show our commitment to not only getting into the market, but for really working hard with a well known, well respected Japanese company to make the game accessible to the sensibilities in this market.
