Hoping to ride the popularity coattails of Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G, Sega's upcoming action RPG Phantasy Star Portable is gearing up for its summer release with a first trailer.
The PSP release, being produced by Sega's Sonic Team division, is based on the latest games in the series, Phantasy Star Universe and its expansion, Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus, and will offer offline multi-player functionality, letting four players team up on quests, just like 2nd G.
As pointed out last week by Kotaku, the desire to entice Monster Hunter loving fans goes beyond game functionality, and includes an updated logo that bears more than a passing resemblance to Monster Hunter's logo.
The game comes out July 31st in Japan, and a UMD demo will be given out shortly before launch.
