I don't know the reason why they put it up again (without saying anything) but the last "news" there was 4 years ago.
If only those guys would release what they achieved so far so anyone with more time can pick it up.
I absolutely f*cking agree. Seriously everytime another Pokémon "inspired game" / clone / mod / new official entry pops up, I'm like
"Why is this franchise so big instead of DQM which was the waaay better GB game back then? And why in the motherf*cking world is Square Enix f*cking around that much with localizing all of their very few DQM games they made?"
Then I always remember how great DQM was on the GBC and that this PSX remake might be the perfect 2D version of it and that my life is such a sad life because there's no english translation for it yet.
