Nintendo's DSiWare to get Phantasy Star Zero Mini Game
By Tomeeboy at 03/17/2009 - 10:14am
Phantasy Star Zero

According to the latest issue of Famitsu, a Phantasy Star Zero mini game will be making an appearance on Nintendo's DSiWare download service. The game, appropriately titled "Phantasy Star Zero Mini", will feature a score attack mission in which players will run through Gurhacia Valley and ultimately face off against the Rayburn.


The DSiWare title will have the same online functionality as the full game, including chat and wireless play. However, it currently looks like there is not a way to play the game with your Phantasy Star Zero character. Instead, players will take on the mission using one of three pre-selected characters. At a mere 200 DSi Points ($2 US), though, "Mini" will hopefully be a fun treat and a great way to lure new players into the full Zero experience! Phantasy Star Zero Mini is slated to arrive on DSiWare in Japan sometime this March, while a US release date is currently unknown. A big thanks to our tipsters for the story! For more of the latest Phantasy Star Zero news and discussion, be sure to stop by our Phantasy Star Zero forums!


Update: Thanks to Japanese fan site Shougai PSO, some details concerning this mini-game have been cleared up. The three selectable characters are Ogi, Kai and Sarisa, and Gurhacia Valley serves as the field for this adventure. As players make their way through the area, they will face other enemies such as Gawls and Galapythons, until they reach the boss, a large dragon known as Rayburn.

Famitsu Review Score for Phantasy Star Zero
By Ryna at 12/18/2008 - 6:19pm
Phantasy Star ZeroFamitsu Review Score for Phantasy Star Zero Famitsu reviewers have given Phantasy Star Zero a rating of 33 (8/8/9/8) on its 40 point scale. The game was praised for its simple controls, high-tempo combat, and online mode. According to the review, "it really feels like an online game in the palm of your hand." It also goes on to state that players can expect to spend a 'sizable' amount of time leveling and looking for rares. The only major criticism seems to be the perceived softness of the sound.

Here is a recap of Famitsu scores for Phantasy Star games:
  • Phantasy Star Zero - 33/40
  • Phantasy Star Portable - 33/40
  • Phantasy Star Online: Episode 1 and 2 - 35/40
  • Phantasy Star Universe - 35/40
