Prices're leaked:

Core box is $130 US - basically the same as the Necromunda core set, so something like 17,000 yen
Core book is $40 - same as First Strike, so 5000 yen-ish
Kill Team boxes are $60, so maybe 7500 yen?
Killzone boxes are $80 - same as Know No Fear, so 10,000 yen-ish

About what's expected, really, and probably continuing their trend of good deals in packaging. The Killzone terrain set isn't a no-brainer purchase for me, but a box of reavers plus a bit of terrain for 7500 yen looks potentially tasty.

Looks like the news embargo has lifted, and there's lots of unboxings and discussions going around on the intertubes. Here's a pretty good Let's Play that also shows off all the box terrain, which is not only very pretty but of which there is a lot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Fi4w6lVERg

Game looks solid - sort of a hybrid of 40K and NuNecromunda, with a real back and forth to activation and lots of granularity, specialists, cover effects, wound and morale effects, and all that good stuff. It sounds like for campaign games, your kill team will have a particular objective, which depends on your faction, that you have to work towards, and different specialists have different skill trees - not as random as skills for Necromunda or whatever, so you don't have the eternal problem of your heavy getting a strength bonus.

From the faction previews up on the site, it looks like they're restricting what models you can take almost entirely to "standard troops available in plastic boxes," and the commentary suggests that they're limiting equipment to stuff that comes in those boxes, which you can see where they're coming from anyway - simplicity and balance (nobody gets Terminators, f'rex), plus being able to play anything allowed in the rulebook without having to break into your bits box.

Looks like I could now do AdMech, Marines, Chaos Marines, or Guard entirely easily, plus Genestealer Cultists if I pull in a Purestrain or two from the Tyranid list, which apparently you can!
