Announcement came early: http://www.sunsoftgames.com/news/2009-12-10%20Nihon%20Telenet%20Library.php
Sunsoft acquired the entire Nihon Telenet software library. Ports, remakes, and maybe even sequels ahoy!
I'm really looking forward to seeing what becomes of Cosmic Fantasy out of this deal. CF2 on the Wii VC is a gimme, but it'd be very neat if some of the sequels that were never released here ended up being localized or remade. You know, to fill the turn-based anime-style sci-fi/fantasy RPG void that's been left ever since Phantasy Star turned into an action-oriented online series.
