If SSM does a Journey character as DLC, I'll be immensely happy with this transition. =)
But yeah, my guess is it's damage control, as TIMBO said. They'd probably like as many sales as possible to continue to trickle through, after all, so there's no reason to say "Naw, we're dropping this thing like hot garbage!"
If I haven't mentioned Trivio in my post, it's because she is so beautiful and precarious that I just wanted to show her how much she means to me.
