    title pretty much says it itself. i know that they did have plans for re-releasing mp-01 in japan, but i also heard that they canceled the re-release because of mp-04 coming out. so what exactly happened?

    I think he was re-released in Hong Kong, but not in Japan.

    Nevermore, as usual, got it. Hong Kong re-release for the rest of the Asian market, but not Japan.
