From Phantasy to Grim Reality
Sega West’s ignorance of recent Phantasy Star franchise stars appears to not be limited to just Phantasy Star Online 2. You can now not expect the just announced Phantasy Star Nova for Playstation Vita to make the trek across the Pacific, either.
A conversation published by Sega Addicts with Sega of America community manager Kellie Parker affirms there are no plans at the moment to localize Nova, putting it in the same limbo as PSO2.
“There are currently no plans to release Phantasy Star Nova in the western market,” Parker said. “Should this change, we will ensure the information is shared as soon as possible.”
It is further injury to insult for Phantasy Star fans, as we broke news earlier today that revealed PSO2 is indeed translated for Western markets, but concerns about profits are holding Sega Sammy back from expanding the MMO’s reach beyond Asia.
