I do not know why this came about, but someone in Japan apparently posted a transcript of the English dialogue from White Witch/Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch released in the US. It comes complete with Japanese notes, which is even stranger.
On another off-topic subject...Who exactly owns the rights to the re-release? If Falcom owned it outright, they could potential re-release the titles properly - but Bandai (And appears that way.) also own a share, any re-release would be...messy, to say the least.

As I've probably said before, despite Bamco's butchering of the dialogue & battle system, I loved all 3 of the Gagarhv trilogy. I'm playing LoH 5 right now, & I love how it's tying everything together. BUT, I still wish somebody else translated it, it's a shame it got the treatment that it did.

oh what magnificent, I look so forward to this legendary heroes to be released soon soon soon! I've seen the pictures and thought they looked nice and good. and then of course fun! Imagine having to play legend of heroes! incomprehensible legendary stories await us! In heaven, they become happy!
As for the PC market in the U.S., it seems healthy enough, but there's this weird sense of "PC-style games" vs. "console-style games"... and if you try to release a console-style game on the PC, it tends to be a total flop, as PC gamers seem to want only PC-style games. It's very odd!
This probably has more to do with PC gamers' just not realizing that some console-style games can play well in PC and not looking for them, as opposed to not wanting console-style games in PC. I know many of my friends who just refuse to step out of what they usually play and try to look for something else; yet, when I give them some games with different styles, they actually end up enjoying them a lot. So yeah, that tendency's due to laziness and lack of awareness than anything else.
I am not going say I am pleased by the news that LoH7 is appearing on PSP. I never did like playing RPGs on portable consoles - and complex RPGs were something I like on PC better than regular game consoles.
I am happy that definite news has come out, though.

Falcom's games looked nicer on the PC, but their move to PSP is fully understandable. Sure a lot of people in Japan own Wiis & DSeseses, but how many hours do they actually play it versus people who own PSPs? (and that number is pretty high too). Now compare that to the number of people still playing PC games.. err.. non-porno PC games. Falcom can reach a much better market, I'm happy that they're in charge of these PSP releases instead of someone else doing the port, and PSP games have a much better chance of coming out in the US. ...would be pretty sweet to see Falcom PC games on Steam or ported to XBLA though...
It appears Ys SEVEN and PSP2 have gotten me past my unwillingness to play portable game systems at home. Also being able to plug my PSP into my TV whenever helps
