> Phantasy Star Nova (PSN) is set in the same world as Phantasy
Star Online 2, except it's multiplayer option is local ad hoc only.
All PlayStation Vita games, including PSN,
are region free. That's great for American players, since Sega
has no intention of porting this game. Anyway, all the text in this
game is Japanese, but menu navigation is attainable with practice.
> The main draw (for me) to importing PSN is the ability
to play offline. I don't want to mess with setting up a Japanese
account and so on. Yes, 4 player ad hoc wouldn't be bad, but do you
know 3 (other) people that own a PlayStation Vita?
> Character creation is loaded with options and there's plenty of new areas,
weapons and enemies to encounter. Choose your sex, next the classic
Human, Newman and Cast races, then the familiar Hunter, Force and Ranger
jobs. A host of weapons reprise their role including the Great Sword,
Partisans, Canes, Wands, Rifles and (most important) the Double Saber!
