Sega has announced the latest entry into the Phantasy series, titled [IDOLA: Phantasy Star Saga]! The game’s story takes place in a land called [Vandor], where the giant creatures known as [Idola] roam.
The evil god Dark Falz, sealed away during ancient times, begins its resurrection. Can civilization stand up and stop its return? And what is the true identity of the [Idola], regarded as kin to Dark Falz?
Stella, the story’s heroine, leads the [Aries Knights], an armed brigade that battles the Idola. She is shy in nature, concealing her face behind an iron mask.
Uly, another main character, lost his parents at a young age. Following a fateful encounter with Stella, he becomes head of the Aries Knights’ commando unit.
A Familiar Feeling
IDOLA: Phantasy Star Saga is a brand new game starring Uly (CV: Toshiki Masuda) and Stella (CV: Akane Fujita). This game was made as an entirely separate project, meaning the development of IDOLA will have no effect over the operation of PSO2.
Fans of the Phantasy Star series will recognize staples of previous works, such as [Idola], the ominous term that has come to be associated with the music of Dark Falz. Certainly the series most famous mascot, the cute yellow creatures known as Rappies, will appear on Vandor! In addition, if you look closely, you can even see a Mag floating next to Uly in the artwork.
Even Quna, the pop Idol from Phantasy Star Online 2, will be presented as a character in a pre-registration reward.
IDOLA: The Cash Content
Even though Phantasy Star Saga is free to play, the game will contain cash content in the form of a Gacha. This will allow players to obtain weapons and characters. However, outside of that, there will be other opportunities, such as in-game events, where you can obtain characters.
