The article you linked to is a discussion of the multiplatform project Falcom announced, which is a completely different project and has nothing to do with the Chinese PC port since the former was announced as a new game using the same basic plot (which we're still waiting for) while the latter is a straight port.
Also, where are you getting this US PC release from? The dates and versions you're talking about refer to the US PSP release in 2010. You don't even need to be able to read Japanese to see that.
Several methods, I would say. Most of it I would say is based on my experinces of aquiring Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki limited edition. And I will do the same method on getting Ys Seven Use Zarmark, a Proxy service to get the item from Taobao (Sorta like a Chinese Ebay)
I actually bought Legend of Heroes Zero no Kiseki limited edition from Yes-asia like couple months after it was sold out everywhere else. They have quite a mark up on the items, but at least the shipping is free.
It was a complete pain in the ass to find even the regular edition, because they use the chinese pronounciation of it, so it won't come up in the search engine.
Also noted, there are more then one publisher publishing the same game from Falcom. My version came from Typhoon games, which is a Hong Kong Publisher of PC games, and I know if you live in other province of China, you end up with different publishers. But i notice in the end the product content is the same, but the DRM was different which was kind of weird.
Is there any chance for Falcom/Xseed to release the game on Steam in the future? I guess it's not very hard get the English files from the PSP version and add it to the Chinese PC version.
I would also like that to happen, but from what I have read on the Steam boards, the difficulty for XSEED to license this PC version resides on the fact that this version is out of Falcom's hands and they would have to establish partnership with Typhoon Games rather than Falcom.
I guess the same would also apply to the PC versions of The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki.
Assuming they make a PC version of Ao to begin with, although the odds of that are probably about as good as the odds that they'll give the Evolution treatment to that game on the Vita eventually.
Actually, there was a tweet (from Falcom) that the PC version of ZnK has been seen undergoing play at Falcom HQ. It's kinda weird and could just mean someone at the company was fooling around with the Chinese game... or it could suggest they've got plans to do some retranslation and limited distribution of their own. If that's the case and if it extends to Ys Seven as well then there's a fairly good chance that XSEED could pick it up for Steam distribution. I'm led to believe that making the script for Trails in the Sky work with the PC version of FC has been possible if a bit buggy for fans (as a practical matter and setting aside any piracy issues) so I'm sure it could be done by XSEED without a whole lot of bother if the project is possible at all.
Now, if Falcom doesn't have any plans to retranslate and distribute the PC games, then we're not likely to see them because XSEED would have to make a deal with a third party and there's the whole DRM thing (which Falcom would remove in their own version) that they'd have to deal with. Basically it all turns on what Falcom's intentions are.
For those users that don't want to use a deputy service to get the Ys Seven limited edition. Yes asia is selling them, for 89.99 with free shipping. With the shipping together, overall i think you get gip about 20$?
is there any pictures of this game i can find none is it just a scaled up PSP version like they did when the released Ys 1 and 2 Chronicles? I would love to get the PC version but i see no real info on it i even googled it and got nothing
