You weren't looking hard enough. Mobile Fleet 0079, originally released
for the short-lived Pippen, was ported to Windows about 2 years ago, around
the time when Gundam Virtual Modeler was being ported to Windows. Back
then Bandai was on a software binge, releasing everything on Mac/Windows.
The Zeon files CD Mark Simmons mentioned a few months ago came out in that
time frame too.

Porting doesn't seem to be big in Japan. When a game comes out for a
console it usually stays there and doesn't get ported. However, recently
we've seen cross-overs of Mobile Fleet 0079 (Pippin/PowerMac -> Windows),
Giren's Greed (Saturn -> PSX), etc., I wouldn't rule that out if the graphic
cards market isn't so messy in the PC side now.
