Sega of Japan has set the "Hunter's License" fee for its Dreamcast title Phantasy Star Online. Like most other online worlds, Sega of Japan will be charging users to play via their "Hunter's License," which will be required for all users wishing to play the game online. There are two payment options payable with Web Money or by credit card, based on the length of the contract, 400 yen ($3.70 USD) for 30 days or 1,000 yen ($9.30 USD) for 90 days. Sega also announced that the service will be available for free for 30 days, beginning from the purchaser's first connection to the Phantasy Star Online network. This will give users 30 days to get used to the game's environment before laying down any cash for a "Hunter's License."

Working Designs has completed the list of memorabilia that will be included with its upcoming PlayStation RPG, Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete. Fans of the series were likely surprised at the amount of Lunar merchandise that Working Designs included with the last game, Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete. With Lunar 2 though, Working Designs has gone above and beyond itself.

Those who purchase Lunar 2 will receive:

  • 3 Game CDs

  • 1 Hardbound game manual

  • 1 CD Wallet containing:

    • 1 Soundtrack CD with 73 minutes of arranged music

  • 1 "Making of Lunar 2" documentary movie disc

  • An "Omake Box" containing:

    • 1 Lunar 2 paper map with mini-poster

    • 1 scale replica of Lucia's pendant in a cloth pouch

    • 17 Lunar 2 character mini-standees

Pictures of the memorabilia can be found at the official Working Designs Site. Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete is currently scheduled to be released on Nov. 29 for the Sony PlayStation. Those who pre-order the game from certain stores will receive a free, limited-edition punching Ghaleon puppet.
