NOVEMBER 9 UPDATE!
Two Korean sources have brought us some extremely valuable information from the NX2 beta test at ENTer in Seoul. The playable game brings some very noticeable differences and doesn't have all the content that will be available in the final game, but there is a good bit of information emerging from there.
The information is unfortunately not accompanied by pictures and video due to ENTer's strict policy in not allowing the game to be filmed, to the point where they will go after people who leak media. However, that doesn't mean media won't emerge soon. In fact, we may be seeing media very soon as the game is expected to arrive in Mexico at the end of the week.
Without further ado, here is the information that they have presented to us:

-unlocks will use a "mileage" system where you earn this mileage and use it to buy songs!
Seo Taiji is confirmed to be in the game by a top anonymous source and NX2 will have a recent song of his with possible past Taiji revivals.
Much more information is yet to come but Andamiro is being very secretive about new information being released, however more should definitely come soon.
Note - we have had to remove some information from the site temporarily.
For new updates, visit our thread in the forum where any new information is revealed! Once again, all credit goes to our two sources, without whom none of this information would be available (in non-Korean form, that is!
