SEGA of America, Inc. has released all new assets of the upcoming game Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection for PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360 video game system!

Welcome to the first installment of Retro Tuesdays! This week’s trip down video game memory lane features the entire collection of the classic franchise, Phantasy Star! This is the first time ever that all four titles have been featured in one compilation!

A few fun facts you may not have known about the Phantasy Star series:

– A graphically enhanced version of Phantasy Star™ was the first title released in the Japan-only SEGA Ages™ series.

– The U.S. box art for Phantasy Star™ II depicts lead characters Rolf and Nei not in their usual anime style, but as shockingly older versions of themselves. Nei’s long ears have also been transformed into horns.

– In Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom, there are four different endings to the game, depending on which characters you marry at the end of each generation.

– When Phantasy Star™ IV was first released, the retail price was almost $100. Think about how much this collection cost. You’re welcome.
