Alessandro Lanzuisi, who I guess is the Italian publisher stated in this thread that there were publishers in the US that were interested, but I don't think that there has been any definitive information since. I too have been waiting patiently, but it seems that at it's current rate, Europe might see an expansion released before we can get a copy of the base game.
Thanks for the info, and my fault for not noticing the other thread. Didn't see it "above the fold" in my browser, and looking at the other posts' dates I figured nobody had talked about it in a couple months and assumed I needed to post my own thread instead of scrolling down to look for an existing one. Subscribed to the other thread now hoping for an update.
