Phantasy Star II Modernization Hack

Hack of Phantasy Star II


The purpose of this hack is to mitigate many of the flaws of Phantasy Star II in order to create an overall play experience more similar to that of Phantasy Star IV. This means decreasing the amount of level and money grinding, increasing the number of references to other games in the series, some translation improvement, bug correction, and more.

Major changes include: character niches and specialties are enhanced, technique arsenals are improved and mastered more speedily, shop and treasure chest contents are streamlined, characters join with better equipment, useless items are retired in favor of better items, enemy names are expanded, etc.

We are currently on Version 3.1, the fifth release of this hack. 3.1 introduces some fixes to the text, a total rewrite of Kain’s introduction, and a few other minor tweaks. Please see the readme for details. And thank you to everyone who tried this hack!

Please note, the patched ROM will need to have its checksum corrected before it will play. The suggested fix for this is to use FixChecksum.exe.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Phantasy Star II (USA, Europe) (v1.2)
  • Unmodified ROM CRC32: 904FA047
  • Patch Applied CRC32: 3B3688E8
