Phantasy Star II Confirmed by ESRB

Lucky Japanese gamers got their chance to enjoy the game today, but the recent certification of Phantasy Star II by the ESRB confirms that the classic Genesis/Megadrive RPG is coming to Western shores, too.

This isn’t a tremendous surprise as the game has been released in the West several times, but it’s certainly worth looking forward to nonetheless. The Phantasy Star series is one of Sega’s most treasured franchises and it would be excellent to see the third and fourth Genesis/Megadrive instalments appear at a later date.

With the Master System now confirmed as a Virtual Console channel, maybe we will see the very first Phantasy Star, too?
