The ads were initially for Japan, and they're just using the same one for other regional release rather than creating a new one to save cost.
It's pretty much similar to the Magnus video where you see lounges that were taken down or never released.
GZ has said they aren't working on releasing Neon Downtown at this time. It's better to not put expectations on them. There are many instances where they have let down people. Expect the worst. And be happy when you actually see it, rather than at the time they announce things. (Many stuff they said never came out) That way you'll be less frustrated with them.
Hey guys, you know they came out with them bartender outfits BUT they advertised them in the downtown granzella.....i would have expected them to release the downtown place with the outfits. still waiting for downtown it should come one day i guess.
I "suspect" it might be faster to learn Japanese and go on their server than it would be to wait for them to bring it to us. I don't have any links to support that, though.
As for the what nots, check the second drawer.
P.S. - I have a suspicion the bottom drawer is a favorite of at least one forum user.
