Phantasy Star (SEGA AGES - Switch)

This has just come out - check out this video, I love what they have done with the map and stats to the side of the gameplay.

I tried to play this on my Master System a few years back and made my own maps but it was a bit of a struggle. I've just downloaded this and had a quick go, the pause menu also has tables for item guide, magic etc - really helpful!

The SEGA Forever release right?

From what I understand, the Switch version has some extras and quality of life things like a on-screen map. M2 are known for going above and beyond for just another SEGA port.

Yeah this is a SEGA AGES job by M2, not a port of the mobile version. As you say, they go above and beyond... the 3DS Classics are their handywork too.

A map is a BIG help with the maze bits

I wonder if they made it so that the game dont more or less destroy you the first time you try to get anywhere?
