Remake, conversion, port, long lost sequel?
Is this a rebuilt conversion from the NES to PC or a straight port? Or, even better, is it a sequel done in the style of the old NES game?

However we've been investing heavily on our emulation wrapper.

My guess would be it's just a straight up emulation of the original NES rom.

That is my fear. I was hoping for at least some polish; native wide screen or something. A simple port is rather cheap. I suppose it's at least a legal way to play it on PC if you don't own the game on the NES already.

Thank you for the reply! I can understand the return on investment situation. I look forward to seeing the final product. Good luck with the game!
