Phantasy Star Universe Confirmed; GC Not Invited

Phantasy Star Universe Confirmed; GC Not Invited

In news that is bound to amaze in some ways and bore in others… SEGA have announced what everyone’s already known since E3 2004: the ‘true’ sequel to the inspiring Dreamcast MMORPG Phantasy Star Online.

What fans were not clued up on until now however, is platform specifics. Regarding the last few Gamecube incarnations and Sonic Team head Yuji Naka publically stating that Sonic Team fans will need Nintendo’s purple box, many would have been dead set on Phantasy Star Universe appearing on Nintendo.

It appears Phantasy Star Universe will be heading to PC, PlayStation 2 and XBOX, with no Gamecube version currently in plans.

Sonic Team is set to manage development of the game, to continue the legacy that was set in the original Dreamcast game. No doubt many Gamecube fans waiting solely for Sonic Team games will be quite vocal about this decision.

We’re still awaiting a response from SEGA America and Europe to clairfiy this, and to find out about more specifics; SONIC NEWS will keep you posted.
