Phantasy Star Nova (Japanese: ファンタシースター ノヴァ) is an action role-playing game released exclusively in Japan to the PlayStation Vita on November 27, 2014. It was developed by Tri-Ace.

Phantasy Star Nova features an all new story that is set in the same universe as Phantasy Star Online 2.

Development

The game was announced by Sega at the SCEJA Press Conference in September 2013 prior to the Tokyo Game Show. The game is described as having a strong storyline, and emphasis on the singleplayer mode. Over 200 people, including 70 main staff, are involved in the development of the game. The game is produced by Yasuyuki Tsuzuki of Sega and Hiroyuki Tamura of tri-Ace, and the in-game music is composed by Motoi Sakuraba.

Gameplay

The game will be multiplayer compatible, with up to four players playing simultaneously in co-operation with one another through local ad-hoc WiFi play. Costumes are shown to have battle damage, showing wear and tear as you take damage. The structure of the game is very similar to the Monster Hunter series, having a main hub to purchase and upgrade weapons and items, then venturing out through a gate that leads outside to begin a mission. The game has a mission-based structure, with many side missions included that can be accepted from fellow NPC teammates. Gameplay itself is very similar to PSO2, with a standard attack button and Photon strikes (renamed 'Gran Strikes' in this game) can be mapped on up to three more open slots, them being the triangle button, hold R and square and hold R and press triangle.

The player is able to craft weapons through the procurement of raw materials; weapons cannot be obtained via item drops, however. Hunter class players are able to utilise swords and partisans, whilst Force class players can use rods. Piles, a new type of anchor shooting weapon, has also been introduced; these weapons create weak points on enemies.

Setting

As part of the Arks Special Planetary Exploration Group Alter, the player is on a journey to return alive from Machia, a chaotic planet where photons have no effect, after the Delta Variant warship crashes on Machia with 1,000 crew on board. The planet also happens to be home to the Gigantes, which huge foes that the player must face throughout the game.

Characters

The story will revolve around multiple characters:

  • Lutina, an 18 year old human female NPC and partner of the protagonist, belonging to the Force class.
  • Seil, an 18 year old human male NPC of the Hunter class.
  • Phildia, a 28 year old human female NPC of the Hunter class, who is the temporary captain of the Delta Variant.
  • Izuna, a 16 year old Newman female NPC, partner of Seil and is a ranger class
