Phantasy Star has always been popular amongst role-playing fans, and handheld owners will soon come to appreciate the franchise's singular multiplayer appeal. Coming this year to the PSP is the long-anticipated Phantasy Star Portable, which is bound to be hugely popular in Japan and might make a significant splash in North America. Here's a new promotional trailer that shows off some fancy cut-scenes and stylish, fast-paced gameplay; it's an excellent and exciting preview for those in need of promising new PSP titles. We all need more great PSP games, and thankfully, 2009 is shaping up to be a great year. Here's hoping Sega reveals a North American (and maybe even European...?) release date soon.
