Thanks. Sounds like they have things mostly under control and this will be completed in due time.
This is excellent news as this is an excellent game, and deserves to be enjoyed by as many people as possible.
By the way, if anyone is hesitant to play this game because they did not play the first, please don't be.
While the story in II does continue quite a bit from I, in my opinion I is not worth playing unless you are a hardcore Falcom fan.
I finally got through I over the course of about 5 years (frequently putting it down for years at a time with my file saved on my Tennokoe Bank Card).
It was one helluva chore.
Even understanding Japanese, the flow and pacing of the game is horrendous.
I love Falcom, but I have to consider Kaze No Densetsu Xanadu I to be one of their must epic FAILs.
It had so much potential in certain areas, but is completely ruined by tedium.
Kaze No Densetsu Xanadu II, on the other hand, I consider to be a complete masterpiece. It only took two major improvements to make a masterpiece from a FAIL game.
1. No more pointless errands, which made up the majority of the first game. The game keeps moving along at a brisk pace with interesting locales and dungeons.
2. Vastly improved graphics in the overhead perspective parts (which make up the majority of both games). The graphics are definitely some of the best on the system.
...and that's all the improvements that were necessary.
So, my advice is to enjoy II on its own, and please don't worry about the original.
