SEGA announces Phantasy Star Nova for the Playstation Vita

PhantasyStarNova

Sony is having a Japanese conference today where they show what Japanese audiences can expect from Sony at this year’s TGS. During the event Sony announced a new slim Playstation Vita and a few games, one of those being Phantasy Star Nova! The game will be developed by tri-Ace (Resonance of Fate), and will feature a single-player story mode along with an online co-op mode that allows you to team up with 3 other players online or in lan. The game game is set to released in Japan this upcoming March.

Some facts were given about Phantasy Star Online 2‘s performance on the Vita. It has been confirmed that SEGA has sold over 150,000 boxed versions of Phantasy Star Online 2 and has over 650,000 people playing the game on Sony’s handheld. This is probably the first time someone has handled a new Phantasy Star game that hasn’t been Sonic Team.

    One of the chief producers for Sega games (including Tri-Aces Resonance of Fare) currently was one of the of the major designers for original Phantasy Star games.

    I don’t think PSO2 is made by Sonic Team

      Phantasy Star Online 2 is a wholly developed title by SEGA. The games you are thinking of in which Sonic Team either were the secondary developer or mere assistance are the Phantasy Star Portable series.

    • Will says:

      Sakai is Sonic Team. The Sonic Team logo just seems to be used as a branding for Sonic games only now though.
