Phantasy Star Goes Eternal On Mobage Town


This winter will mark the entry of a yet another Sega franchise into the social games space. Joining the browser-based Sakura Wars, Shenmue Town on Mobage Town, and Yakuza on GREE, will be Phantasy Star: Eternal Hunters.


The neat hook here is that Eternal Hunters will place you in different ingame areas, depending on your location in real-life, detected through your mobile. The game takes place on an unknown planet, where you’ve been sent to gather data that has been scattered throughout, following the crash of a research vessel.
