Sega’s Monster Hunter competitor Phantasy Star Portable was met with much fanfare in Japan, netting an upwards of 600,000 unit sales in the region. Unsurprisingly, that success hasn’t gone overlooked at the company, as an image appearing across various Japanese blogs and message boards indicates that a sequel is in the works.
The re-release is said to include a bonus video UMD that includes a teaser in the form of an opening movie for Phantasy Star Portable 2, in addition to fully voiced, story-driven recaps of scenes from the franchise. While Sega has yet to officially announce a sequel, there’s little reason to doubt the validity of this information. Taking the sheer popularity of Sega’s first attempt into account, it’s a no-brainer to go for seconds.
Phantasy Star Portable makes the transition to Sony’s budget line on October 8, but with TGS right around the corner, we may be hearing about the sequel before then.
