It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen a new Phantasy Star game, but it looks like there’s a new one coming. The only rub? It’s a mobile game. Sega just opened up a countdown website teasing a reveal for a brand new JRPG set in the Phantasy Star series, which is being made in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the long-running classic franchise. An official reveal is currently set for July 24.
Of course, this is all a part of a Japanese website setup, so we’re not sure if it’s anything planned for the west, but it’s still very good news for longtime series fans. The new game will be coming to iOS and Android, but there isn’t any further information about what the game will feature in the future when it finally launches.
We haven’t seen an official Phantasy Star release in some time, and many Western fans are still frustrated by the fact that Phantasy Star Online 2 never got a launch here. The press release regarding the upcoming Phantasy Star project mentioned that the game recently passed five million registered users, and unfortunately we never got our fair shake at it.
If you’re looking forward to more from the series, however, this might be your next big chance. We’ll have to keep our eyes open for a potential Western debut in the future. after it officially releases.
