EU VC Release - 18th April - Sega Week - Phantasy Star III

After the 4-game blowout last week, some Europeans wondered if Nintendo of Europe had somehow completely turned around and would start to throw out multiple games every week from now on. This dream has been quickly shattered, because it's just one game again this week.

Apparently not considering the two Master System games last week as a true "Sega Week", Sega has now released a new Mega Drive game. Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom is the sequel to Phantasy Star II, also available on VC, but unfortunately for those of you who liked the second game, it's not quite as good. The game just feels rather bland compared to it's famous predecessor, which disappointed fans many years ago and no doubt will do so again this time.

If you're a die-hard Phantasy Star fan you might find the game worth picking up, otherwise you'll most likely find it to be rather mediocre. On the plus side though, it's another RPG - The VC certainly needs every one it can get!

In completely unrelated news, Germany's USK today rated Nebulus and World Games on the Commodore 64, so they should be coming to the VC soon (Next week, perhaps?).
