Enemies, like this dragon, look quite different in the Phantasy Star mobile phone remake released in Japan. The battle and dungeon systems are very similar to the original Master System title, but enemies no longer have animated attacks. Instead, they are static sprites with more detailed designs. The dungeons are still first person view mazes with simple walls.

Why oh why did they not release this in the US? Why is SEGA of America being completely ignorant of classic Phantasy Star other than in the Genesis collections for the PS2, PSP, PS3 and 360? Oh yeah, and the Virtual Console.

I've no idea... either they just didn't want to translate it or there's some kind of legal or technological barrier. My understanding of the game is that it was released only for one specific type of mobile phone. It could be that Sega had some sort of exclusive contract with the phone provider that prevents the game from being released here.

Still, with all the games Sega has been bringing from the Genesis to phones this year, there's always hope for this one.
