We need more JRPGs on Steam.
The beloved JRPG Phantom Brave was first released on the PS2 back in 2004. It was also ported over to the PSP and Wii after that. And now, it looks like NIS will be bringing this classic PS2 title to PC via Steam as well.
Phantom Brave was spotted on the Steam website, with the following description:
“On a small, lonely island in Ivoire lives Ash, a Phantom who lost his life in battle, and Marona, who has the ability to communicate with Phantoms. Sometimes, Marona receives Bottlemails that float along the sea.
Marona, who lost her parents when she was very young, makes her living by completing the requests inside the Bottlemails as a Chroma, a person who accepts freelance work to solve problems for people. However, because of her abilities, the people call her the “Possessed.” Even if she completes her work, some clients will hesitate to pay her the reward because of her reputation.
Still, Marona stays optimistic and follows what her parents told her long ago: “Help people, and someday everyone will start to like you.” Her goal is to save enough money to buy Phantom Isle, which she’s currently renting. Like a subtle wave in the sea, the adventures of Marona and Ash are about to begin.”
We don’t have an exact release date for the game just yet, but it’s expected to be released on Steam in July.
