A few companies let non-related companies localize their games with the condition that they own the translation, like NISA and Disgaea 1, if I'm not mistaken.
That's really intersting to know.
I'm a huge fan of the Lunar games. I have both Lunar games for the Sega CD and both of the Playstation updates. I am not sure which I would say is better between the PSX Lunar Silver Star Story Complete or Lunar Silver Star Harmony. They are both great games, the songs are different and I might pick the opening of the PSX original because I'm more familiar with it. Like someone said, I might have nostalgia goggles on. However, I still like the new opening song and think Xseed did a great job with the changes that were made to translation. I was skeptical about the new VOs, but fortunately I had nothing to worry about because even though they are mostly new voice actors, they were still done very well.
