Phantasy Star Complete Collection Lands On PS2 Classics In Japan

By Spencer . December 19, 2012 . 12:06am

pstar1Sega has a wonderful collection of the Phantasy Star games for PlayStation 2. Phantasy Star Complete Collection includes eight titles:

Phantasy Star (Sega Mark III)

Phantasy Star II (Genesis)

Phantasy Star II: Successor of Time (Genesis)

Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom (Genesis)

Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium (Genesis)

Phantasy Star Text Adventure (Genesis)

Phantasy Star Adventure (Game Gear)

Phantasy Star Gaiden (Game Gear)

 

… all on one disc and now digital download. Phantasy Star Complete Collection is now available on the PlayStation Store for just 800 yen ($10). Not a bad deal since the disc version is kind of hard to get. Like many Sega Ages games, Phantasy Star Complete Collection had a low print run.

If you’re looking for an English collection of Phantasy Star games we recommend Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection. It’s not perfect, but if you want to replay the English localized series that’s the way to do it. Phantasy Star is on there plus the Shining Force games.

    Would love to try the game gear versions someday as well as the remade phantasy stars. I will just cross my fingers and hope the day comes.

    Glad you mentioned the sega genesis collection, love it. Played all 4 phantasy stars and both shining forces on it since I bought it. Couldn’t bring myself to play through Shining in the Darkness yet…just wasn’t up for a first person dungeon crawler.

    not sure but…I think I played this game on the master system…

    I was going to mention Sonic’s Genesis Collection for both PS360. Less than $20 and is a great deal. Phantasy Star 4, Altered Beast, Bonanza Bros, Fatal Labyrinth, Flicky, Gain Ground, Kid Chameleon, Streets of Rage 2 and Shinobi 3. Great games.

    Shadow Dancer and Sword of Vermillion are on the original Sega Genesis Collection but not on this one. I’d personally give up the Shining series for these two games to have made the cut.

      Don’t forget Ristar, the game that Sega refuses to do something more with. Even when they reckognize that the game is really excellent!

    Someone told me these are in English as well? Can anyone confirm this before I pick it up?

      Some of these are in the Sonic and Sega Ultimate collection for the ps3 and 360.

      If you’re referring to the complete collection, then yes! The games that came out in America (ie, the main games, PS1-4) have an English option available. The side games like Text Adventure and Gaiden were never released in the West, so those don’t have English options.

    Best compilation ever :3

  • Barrylocke89

    I should point out that if you are able to get your hands on this Complete Collection, then it’s probably the best version of the old Phantasy Star games available in English. PS1-4 (but NOT the side games like Gaiden, which never came out in the West) had their English translations included as options.

    In addition, The Complete Collection had options that increased the speed of combat, as well as options that added a multiplier for EXP (very handy for games like PS2, which was notoriously grindy and kinda slow). All of this makes this version of the game the definitive version for both East and West players.

    That said, the Ultimate Genesis Collection is a lot easier to get ones hands on, and it comes with a lot more games, so if you want more than Phantasy Star, then that’s where you should look.

    Oh, and Successor of Time is actually PS3 (aka the japanese name for Generations of Doom), not PS2.

      Well said. I was going to make those points, but you beat me to it and described it better than I could have hoped to do :)

      Everyone else, listen to this man. Nice thing is that if you can get money for use on the Japanese PS Store, you can play this on any region console. That’s one way it’s even better than the actual PS2 disc – which I have but requires me to play on my J-PS2.

    bet this won’t be released on the NA PSN…

    I’m tempted to get it, along with the Space Harrier collection. They’re doing Fantasy Zone, as well?
