My whole rest of the year is made and more. Lunar 2 has seen NOTHING since like year 2000, videogame related at least I think?
What this also means:
There's nothing holding back Lunar 2 now. Any speculation of rights holders and complications has been cleared up.
What this could / should lead to: BRAND NEW GAMES! Even if its a few years from now.
I would buy this Japanese PSN release for everyone. Sadly, you can't gift on PSN nor do I even know anyone with a japanese PSN except myself.
Also it's a little funny that in another thread, I had made a release timeline:

When the series was active, Lunar would get a different game / port almost yearly since it started in 1992.
1992: The Silver Star in Japan
1993: The Silver Star in USA
1994: Eternal Blue in Japan
1995: Eternal Blue in USA, Walking School in Japan
and so on, up until 2001.
That was probably the first year Lunar didn't get any game releases.
After Lunar Legend in 2002, it only took Dragon Song like 2 to 3 years to start appearing in news, which was released in 2005.
Then lo and behold, the longest gap TO DATE happened. No one is going to be surprised that Lunar took 4 years to get another game release after that. Those 4 years felt like a lifetime. But thank heavens, we were saved by the PSP port in 2009 for Japan, and 2010 for USA! And then, only a year or 2 later, words of the iOS port were spreading online. I guess the PSP port, as much as it had poor sales, was still good for the series.
2013 saw good updates for the iOS game, at least that's something, but...
2014: a new time gap begins... nothing is heard of the series.
This should be updated to
2015: Lunar 2 - Eternal Blue Japanese PSN.
Maybe 2016 could see more stuff! Like the USA version of this?
