Sorry if this seems like a long post:
So, I can only imagine a clickbait article like "The best RPG, or video game (to make it more clickbaity), you've never played! Better than Chrono Trigger!" or something like "Like Chrono Trigger if it didn't have time travel" (Siliconera readers would know what I'm talking about).
I apologize if I sounded like I was ragging on your translation in any way, I absolutely loved the Lunar series being translated by WD, but it wouldn't work for a game like FFVI, though I could imagine a few TM games getting the WD treatment, this one doesn't sound like it would fit in too well with that kind of translation.
Would actually like to see if HCG will update his "Best RPGs for every system" video in the future, with this game. It could be very interesting.
I'm not sure when the golden age of fan translation announcements were. I wasn't concentrating much on the scene, ten years ago, although I would've expected the translations of "Cave Story" and "La Mulana" to be huge, I don't know if that is what prompted there to be actual localized releases of the games for the mainstream consumer but I'm pretty sure of it. If I had to spot you a cup of Joe in sympathy, something like this 10 years ago would've probably prompted an official release of one or two of the games for western audiences, but that is purely hypothetical. It doesn't help that it is a rarity, nowadays to see a big franchise not have a mainline title localized or fan translated.
But thinking about it like this, though, even after all of this time has elapsed, you're still working on this project, and you've got people like me, even if we're the hardcore nerds, very interested in the results. The fact that you may put it out, even with little fanfare, shows that you have a passion beyond numbers and percentages. If people want to miss out on a potentially great experience, than it is their fault. I'll try to inform a friend of mine, who loves JRPGs, about this project, and maybe some posts to some FB groups would help. It's all I can do, really.
And I agree with everything midget35 just posted with. Before the remakes of games like ToP, or SO1, the only way to play them in English was through the translation community. I purchased the GBA version of ToP and loved it, but there are many who would prefer the Super Famicom version to it, which was translated by guys like you.
