Phantasy Star is set to make a welcome comeback later this year with Sega announcing plans for an Xbox 360 version of Phantasy Star Universe, featuring full online gameplay modes via Xbox Live.

Phantasy Star Universe

Some 40 hours of single player storyline are promised for the offline solo mode, whilst the multiplayer option will allow for squad of up to six players to explore the fantasy universe whilst fending off over 70 enemy species, and trying to help each other solve the numerous quests which crop up throughout the game.

Versions of the game are also planned for PC and PS2 alongside the Live-enabled Xbox 360 title, and you can see more about the game on the Sega Europe website.
