So it has been years since a Phantasy star game came to the UK shores. The last being Phatasy Star Portable 2 back in 2010 for the SONY PSP. Recently there was announcement that a new title is coming to the series. Here is Phantasy Star IDOLA ,Coming to both Andriod and Apple store. check the trailer below ,taken form there official website https://idola.jp/
The settings are based around the world of PSO 2 and the battles are command-based, unlike all the previous games released .Sega is preparing a new kind of game system that will be unique to Idola Phantasy Star Saga.
Developers behind the game include producer Shuntaro Tanaka (Valkyria Chronicles, Eternal Arcadia, Sakura Wars 1, 2, Phantasy Star Online 2 es, Phantasy Star Online 2); director Tomomasa Chin (Phantasy Star Online 2 es, Phantasy Star Online 2, and Valkyria Chronicles 1 and 2); art director Sho Mutsuura (Phantasy Star Online 2)
The game looks very nice and, looks like something i could get into. But as this title is a tie in to Pso 2 and no definite date of it coming west, my guess it that the game will not have a western release. I could be wrong but as a PSO fan myself and being teased with a 30th anniversary game coming stright to mobile comes across quite deflating. Whats your thoughts ?
Idola Phantasy Star Saga is expected to launch in Japan in 2018.
