After a short delay, earlier this week we found the Sega AGES version of Phantasy Star would finally be making its way to the Switch in Japan at the end of October. Now, in the same Game Watch interview that revealed Sega Naomi games could be revitalised, it's been confirmed Phantasy Star will arrive locally in North America and Europe on 15th November. It turns out the wait won't be as long as expected.
As previously noted, the game joins existing Sega AGES releases including Sonic the Hedgehog and Thunder Force IV on Nintendo's new system. The series allows you to bask in nostalgia while at the same time enjoy a number of modern enhancements. These new features include additional text options, an FM Sound Unit music player and quality of life improvements to streamline the gameplay. Dungeons now also feature auto-mapping - for easier navigation, and monsters are added to a codex as you encounter them. There's an item list as well, allowing you to view all of the abilities and equipment.
