Phantasy Star

Sega Master System

Game Description:

Phantasy Star is a role playing game for the Sega Master System, and the first in the Phantasy Star series. It’s also one of the earliest JRPGs, and considered a pioneer in the genre. It was critically acclaimed for its scope, lush graphics, animations, 3D dungeons (a first for JRPGs), and for its blend of science fiction and fantasy elements.

Translation Description:

This patch retranslates the original Japanese game to give a whole host of improvements:

  • More faithful to the original Japanese script
  • Expanded script
  • Expanded menus and item names
  • Sound test and sound chip selection
  • Built-in cheats to make the game a little less tough/slow
  • Two custom fonts, with upper and lowercase letters
  • Expanded save slot names and three additional save slots
  • Fully compatible with old saves, the original cartridge (with ROM replacement) and of course for play on real hardware

This update also includes lots of script changes, faster scene changes, and bug fixes.

User Review Information

New 2.0 version

Reviewed By: d0pefish on 30 May 2020

This new update just adds more polish and a few quality of life improvements on top of what was already a great re-translation. The menu options to adjust the font, walking speed, encounter rates, gil & exp multipliers and hair color all work great and pretty much remove the need to use any other patches on the game as you can tweak the challenge and look to your liking. There’s even a game jukebox in the sound menu now if you want to listen to any of the game’s music tracks. Phantasy Star was the first JRPG ever released in America but that original English release was rough and possibly hindered the game’s greatness. This new 2.0 re-translation is superior in every way and is regarded as the best version of the game you can play that still runs on original hardware.
