Well, I'm unsure how this project is proceeding, but I'm always up for another JRPG I've never played before. Also, this one seems to take place in a relatively modern era, which is somewhat of an anomaly for the time. The only RPGs I can think of from that era that don't take place in either space or a medieval fantasy world are Horai Gakuen no Bouken(which has been translated) and EarthBound. I suppose Terranigma counts too, eventually. Secret of Evermore is a borderline example, given that technically, it does take place in a contemporary era, but the main character gets drawn into and trapped in a medieval world.
