Alive IV also has no release date in Japan.

    It had been announced that the Japanese version includes 3 bonus tracks. But a newest advertisement for "Alive IV" does NOT mention about those. Maybe there is no bonus track on the Japanese version.
    Anyway, the release date is NOT announced.

    The Japanese subtitle will be "Jigoku no Shuumaku : Live From Vancouver". "Jigoku no Shuumaku" means "Hell's final act".

    If you want to know about Japanese subtitles, see "Subtitles" section.
