So, I got some sad news from Matranet by email the other day:

"sorry. I've left the business, no more games will be
resissued or published anymore.
(...) No more Matranet. And no more publishing games, no more fairs and events
assistance, no more writting video games books, it's over."
- S.T.A.R

Does anyone know if there's any plans for some other seller or shop to restock some of the old titles from Matranet? Or if there's been any plans for digital downloads for sale?

Titles like:

Children of the Night
Ghost*
Inq & Suq vs Nightmare
Prisoner of War

*Mini-Ghost for PC is still available on itcho for only 2$

I have contacted Unepic Fran about Ghost a few weeks ago. He said it should be available at MSX Cartridge Shop soon. Both in physical and digital form. And his other games will be as well.

Yes, I also got mail from Fran Smile
"I'll be busy a couple of weeks with the launch of UnMetal, but after that I'll work on new digital + physical editions for my MSX games. That's something I planned to do as soon as I finished UnMetal.

I will publish all the information on my twitter.

This answer seems heavily laden with bitterness.
Did something happen that we don't know about ?

A long time ago I met S.T.A.R and Z-0. They were very friendly and charming.
