USA VC Update: Phantasy Star IV

You won't believe it - A lot of people were probably expecting multiple games this week because of the holidays, but Nintendo of America has decided to continue the trend once more, releasing just one new game again! This time, it's an amazing classic RPG.

Phantasy Star IV is the final title in the "main" Phantasy Star storyline. After the somewhat subpar Phantasy Star III Sega decided to make IV a bit more like the second game - As a result, it's easily the best game in the series, and some would even argue it's one of the greatest RPGs ever made. PSIV has everything you'd expect from a classic RPG - Turn-based battles, random encounters, various character classes, tough bosses and more. The game also has cutscenes which are shown through a number of pictures, which look great for the Genesis.

There's no huge Christmas selection this year, but at least there's one fantastic RPG. Maybe NoA has a surprise in store for the final update of the year?

On WiiWare this week you can get two new games, both of which were already previously confirmed - Tiki Towers and Fun! Fun! Minigolf.
