hello. This is Challengers Games. First of all, thank you so much for the article about our game. I enjoyed reading about the game's release date, story, and trailer. However, I am writing to you because there is a discrepancy regarding the game release time. The game will be released on May 31st at 2pm Japan time, but the article states that it will be released at 1pm. (I would appreciate it if you could check the other times as well). Thank you very much. Thank you.
