This week’s Famitsu leaks bring word of a handful of additional new details about Phantasy Star Nova, the upcoming tri Ace-developed PS Vita RPG.
Among the details is information on an operator character by the name of Kisara (voiced by Chiwa Saito). She’s a support character who gives players advice on things such as enemy placements and ideal strategies in accordance with ongoing battlefield conditions.
The magazine also mentions the existence of a base that players can make use of in the game. Unlocked after one of the characters brings it back up online, its functionality can be expanded by spending material gained from down enemies, enabling players to do things such as manufacture items and weapons, among other things. Additionally, the wares that shops offer will expand as they grow as a business.
Also announced is a small collaboration with another Sega game, Resonance of Fate, a 2010 PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG also developed by tri-Ace. Players will be able to equip the protagonists’ costumes in the game, as well as wield their weapons.
Phantasy Star Nova is currently set for release in Japan for the PS Vita on November 27.
