Although Phantasy Star Nova has yet to be confirmed for the West, five minutes of the tri-Ace developed iteration of the popular series have surfaced from a Tokyo Game Show live stream, despite an almost guarantee that Western gamers will weep.
The footage showcases a battle against the Gigantes, a large enemy that is as nefarious as it is intimidating. You and your crew run into these creatures as they inhabit the planet you’ve crash-landed on.
The game resembles the more fast-paced, frenetic gameplay of the modern Phantasy Star titles, but I’m not the least bit happy that the land of the red, white and blue may never get its mittens on such a title.
