The name will remain the same. The fourth film will be positioned as an extra.

If I were to guess, I'd imagine this announcement came so close to the previous release date, so they could get all their ducks in a row and confirm a new date (however far out), rather than potentially announcing multiple short delays over the same period.
Exactly. I don't see that this poses a problem to anybody except reviewers, and even then I don't really get why it's a problem (they were expecting an early copy, but now their early copy will be delayed like all the regular copies?)

This is fantastic news, as far as I'm concerned.

Terrific news, and am more than happy to put up with a delay for this reason. Hopefully Arrow can fully match the Japanese release by also including both cuts of Poem as mentioned earlier in this thread.

From page 1 of this thread:

"Surely the most important release of the year.

That said, the "trilogy" thing is silly. There are four brilliant, thematically linked Jissoji films between 1970 and 1974, and the best (by a smidgen) is the one that's not included here, Asaki yumemishi [A Faint Dream]."

So ... Great news!

to get an impression of "Asaki yumemishi" you can watch a english subbed trailer on a japanese blog (and some nice screenshots) ... 29eeed54ef
