Phantasy Star Portable is a video game announced for the PSP. It is being produced by Sonic Team and developed by Alfa Systems.
The PSP title is said to include an all-new story mode with added missions and a multi-player mode that supports cooperative play up to four players; and appears to be local multiplayer only. Judging from the scans seen of the two-page Famitsu preview, it also is shown that there will be at least two additional characters introduced: Vivienne, a cast who players will team up with in the story, and Helga Neumann, a villain who is responsible for terrorist attacks in the Gurhal System. What is currently being called "Phantasy Star Portable" will be based on Phantasy Star Universe and its latest expansion, Ambition of the Illuminus.
The official Phantasy Star website released nine new screenshots of the game.
Phantasy Star Portable is slated to be released in Japan on July 31 2008. No release outside of Japan has been announced.
What's the likelihood of this coming out in North America?
