Phantasy Scan Zero

Sure, we may have posted about a Sega DS RPG once today, but it wasn't this one, so, like most other games, it doesn't count. Basically, what we're saying is yay Phantasy Star Zero.

Gorgeous Phantasy Star Zero animated short, less gorgeous theme song

We were about to praise this animated promotional video for Sega's Phantasy Star Zero. The look, the design of the environments, and the atmospheric music scream "Phantasy Star Online."

Jaws drop at first Phantasy Star Zero trailer

The first ever Phantasy Star Zero trailer is so damn hot that Gamekyo decided to reproduce it twice when uploading its video. That's fine with us, because we spent the first run-through simply rubbing our eyes at what we were seeing. Is this the best 3D yet on the DS? It's definitely a contender,...
