Why has WO HD release been delayed in Japan?

Do Sony think it will not sell many copies in Japan because it uses tracks from Pure and Pulse?

I found it a bit of a shock when I read Japan had not yet got this title.

If I were to speculate why it was delayed, it was probably for translation among other things, creating new graphics or replacing text in the game to support the characters to begin with. If you haven't noticed (or tried) the in game music doesn't support any alternate characters, or rather I should be a little more specific, it doesn't support east asian characters. I have a few songs on my playlist that have japanese artists/names on them and suffice to say when the song changes in the middle of a race you can't really read what song is playing, usually it blanks out the not so displayable part, however I have seen "blocks" before in one of the songs.

Probably delayed because of the different coding required to display east asian characters.

Also, do voices get translated (or redubbed) for the Japanese audience as well?
I'll be glad to race HISHO when HD finally comes out for Japan :)
