First Shenmue, then Sakura Wars, and now Phantasy Star has joined the fold of games that I don’t really understand how they are played. Sega is teaming up with Mobagetown to develop Phantasy Star Eternal Hunters, which has been described as a “local interlocking rpg”. Well alright then. Pre-registration has begun, open to 30,000 people. The most unique feature will be play areas that will be generated by the gps information from players’ phones. I can get behind that. Battle systems and character info have not yet been released yet, but any Phantasy Star is good Phantasy Star, right? And a pick up and play version could be really enjoyable. But if you play it on a bus, will the environments change with every stop? Lets hope so.
