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
  • Optional “original names” version with mostly original names for some characters, spells and items

This update includes wider dialogue boxes, bug fixes and groundwork for further translations.

Incredible QoL Changes

Reviewed By: PentV on 27 Sep 2020

While I like the more old school feel of the original script, this one ain’t half bad. But the main reason you should use this hack are the Quality of Life additions. Less battles, more experience, more gold, higher movement speed. The best part is, you can adjust all of these on the title screen!
