Working Designs nearly localized the Samurai Shodown RPG

Are there any old school gamers out there that remember how badass Working Designs was? They were one of the original "Atlus-like" localization gurus that were responsible for a string of amazing Western releases, like the Lunar series, Vanguard Bandits, and thus, a large portion of my childhood.

Former Working Designers member and current Gaijinworks head Vic Ireland took to Reddit recently, to answer fan questions and interact with the gaming community. One particularly awesome bit of information gleaned from the thread was the fact that he nearly brought over SNK's Samurai Shodown RPG, but ended up deciding against it. He also muses on the idea of fighting to bring over/port the PS2 Goemon game via the PSN (yes please!).

So about that Samurai Shodown game: can someone just make me a Hanzo hack and slash? Or a Galford/Poppy Fable-esque adventure game? Or bring Haohmaru back in a Capcom crossover? Someone do something with this series!
