Sonic Team Has PSO E3 Models Stolen

Oh no! Remember when we reported on Sonic Team developing a new episode in the Phantasy Star Online series? The studio had a display for this ‘PSO Card Battle’ game, with some model figurines on show. Those prototype models have been stolen!

Sonic Team has written a notice on its official website and has kindly asked for the return of the models. “We hate to tell you this but, unfortunately, we have been missing 5 prototype character models of “PSO CARD BATTLE” during E-3 days at Nintendo booth,” says the notice.

“These are just pre-production samples, and we were using them for our game development of “PSO CARD BATTLE”. Now this is causing us the serious trouble for our game development, so we would really appreciate if you can let us know any information about this.

“We are hoping that those models will come back to us in the near future.”

We hope those models find their way back to Sonic Team soon.
