• Sega Announces Phantasy Star Portable 2 Fan Art Contest Winners

    Sega community team member RubyEclipse dropped by the PSP2 forum to let us know that the winners of Sega's Phantasy Star Portable 2 fan art contest have been announced! The top 10 entries from the contest were posted on Sega's blog, along with some notes about why the judges liked each one. In a surprise twist, it was revealed that in addition to the first place entry, the second place entry will also be included in the Western release of Phantasy Star Portable 2.

    For those of you wondering, the winning entry is a parody of the famous Barack Obama "Hope" poster, which was designed during the 2008 election season. The runner-up features Alis Landale, the main character from the first Phantasy Star game.

    Congratulations to the winners! We'll look forward to seeing the in-game versions of these two entries! Be sure to check out Sega's blog for the top 10 announcement, as well as their Flickr page for a gallery of all the entries.

      That Alis pic is fantastic! Something about the style reminds me of eighties anime character designs. I love it!

      Cool entries. And I concur, the Alis one is fantastic. I'd love to get a poster of that. It's a great 80's anime look, very heroic, and beautiful. It's like a fully realized depiction of Phantasy Star's first hero for which one would imagine an actual Phantasy Star character would own. It would look appropriate in anybody's room.

      I love both entries for different reasons. But I'm a fan of the Rappy actually. Great concept idea and PERFECT as a poster! That's the one I'm aiming to collect in game. Great work for all who entered. There's some great stuff out there!
