Dual audio has also been confirmed:

But what about Ciel nosurge? Will that ever reach the West? @inspchin, a Koei Tecmo employee, answers:

My take: That’s a shame, because Ciel nosurge is really needed to get the full story. However, Ar nosurge is still a pretty good RPG, and the Plus version should make it a bit more enticing even without a physical copy.
