SEGA has announced that Phantasy Star has launched on Nintendo Switch as part of the expanding lineup of Sega Ages titles. Like all SEGA AGES releases, Phantasy Star is developed by the highly acclaimed retro development studio M2 and originally from the mind of legendary designer Rieko Kodama.
One of the most innovative games of its time, Phantasy Star is a groundbreaking sci-fi RPG that follows Alis in her planet-spanning quest to avenge the death of her brother and topple a tyrannical regime. Besides faithfully recreating the original experience, this version adds something for everyone, including a new map display to help novice adventurers and a compendium where longtime fans can view their favorite monsters.
Phantasy Star is available to purchase via Nintendo eShop for $7.99. The next title to join the Sega Ages line-up will be Out Run, which will launch on the 10th of January, 2019.
