    Bracing for localization begging.

    I remember seeing this on Phantasy Star Fan Blog yesterday. Either way, my need for Phantasy Star can wait for a little while.

  • This is the version of the game THAT’S IN ENGLISH, yes?

    *grumble grumble* …so bitter… *grumble grumble* …stupid Sega… o(>< )o

  • Kaitsu

    I think this is the only game Siliconera accepts when we complain about no localization. Because they feel our feel.

    *Crying intensifies*

      In fact there was one post where, at the end, it said “Keep on praying for that Western release, guys!”.

    *sigh*…

    I give up.

    Kinda curious- what’s the Malaysian mascot from? The Singaporean merlion looks like it came from some old heraldic symbol, whereas that happy little chicken-thing looks a lot more contemporary in it’s design. Not to mention the happy little bunnies.

    • Shadow Rebirth

      a flower or a lion would be Malaysia’s mascot. or i mistaken for symbol instead of mascot O.O

    Haha nice there should be more localized celebrations like this in MMOs.

    They should also do a Raya (Eid) theme celebration, featuring traditional malay costumes (with regards to Malaysia) :)

  • That’s pretty cool! Nice of sega to do something like that!
