Things have been mysteriously quiet about this game as far as North America is concerned. Itagaki promises it will still be released in North and South America, but there are rumors NoA won't be the one to publish it.
However, Valhalla and Itagaki just opened themselves up to media interviews, so maybe there's some news incoming.

Here is Itagaki's comment about the Unseen 64 video I posted above:
I never want to offend Unseen64. 'Cuz I haven't met with them in recent 25 yrs. Perhaps they have some reason to write the article. But idk (Source)
I also noticed that when someone posted the rumor about Xseed, Itagaki neither "Liked" nor commented on it, even tho he has interacted with pretty much every other post on his Facebook wall in the last couple of days.

Early impressions of the game have been pretty scathing, citing poor frame rates, unresponsive controls, and cheap difficulty. Itagaki seems to be taking it in stride, but it wasn't too cool of him to blame the poor reception on lack of player skill.

Well, that's the thing. Ninja Gaiden on Xbox had a positive reception, and its difficulty wasn't blamed on technical issues. Ninja Gaiden II was criticized a bit in that regard, but I think even Itagaki admitted the development was a little rushed.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
