Since were discussing defunct games its a good time to mention I asked Vic Ireland, President of Gaijinkworks, about the possibility of seeing Cosmic Fantasy 2 on Virtual Console. “I’m not going to say no, but it’s very difficult because Telnet [developers of Cosmic Fantasy in Japan] are bankrupt and gone. Yeah, anything is possible,” Ireland said.
“Cosmic Fantasy has a special place in it since we were only able to do two [in the series]. I really like 1, 3, 4A, and 4B and were only able to do one of those chapters. To be able to revisit that would be fantastic, but the rights are really a problem.”
Even though Xseed picked up Lunar: Silver Star Harmony I inquired if Ireland would help them out with the localization since Working Designs originally brought the game to the states. “We’ve been talking with them [Xseed] and hoping they make the right choices in the US,” Ireland said.
