USK update - Four new Sega games: Phantasy Star, Gley Lancer
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
The USK is the German equivalent of the PEGI, ESRB, OFLC and all those other rating groups. They have been known to rate VC games occasionally, however, they never add the ratings to their site. Sometimes, though, they slip up and accidentally add them as Wii games - This is the case today, as they've added four new games which are all published by Sega, and are all Mega Drive games. The games are as follows:
Gley Lancer (Import): This shooter by NCS (The makers of Cybernator, among other games) never made it out of Japan, but still has a small cult following. It's one of the Mega Drive's rarest shooters, so this is quite a welcome addition!
Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom: The next game in the Phantasy Star series is a bit worse than II, but is still quite good in it's own right.
Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium: Yes, they already rated the fourth game as well! As a step up from III, IV is generally considered to be the best game in the series. One to look out for!
Super Fantasy Zone: This one was already rated by the ESRB a while ago, but while the US will receive it as import game, Europe will get it as a regular one.
So, four more upcoming Mega Drive games for Europe! About a month ago, there were only 3 upcoming ones left - Now it's got the most upcoming games of any system (Not counting currently Japan-only games and ones no longer rated)! Which ones of these will you get?
