NIS America revealed today that they will be porting the well-received strategy game Phantom Brave for Steam in a couple months. Originally released for the PlayStation 2 back in 2004, the Steam product page has shown some of the enhancements players will enjoy, including Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, dual audio, gamepad support, and more.
While we had a good time with Disgaea on PC, there were those who experienced a host of issues with it, so one can hope NISA learned a lot from its launch. You can check out a description for Phantom Brave taken from its Steam page, along with a trailer and the first screenshots:
On a small, lonely island in Ivoire lives Ash, a Phantom who lost his life in battle, and Marona, who has the ability to communicate with Phantoms. Sometimes, Marona receives Bottlemails that float along the sea.
Marona, who lost her parents when she was very young, makes her living by completing the requests inside the Bottlemails as a Chroma, a person who accepts freelance work to solve problems for people. However, because of her abilities, the people call her the "Possessed." Even if she completes her work, some clients will hesitate to pay her the reward because of her reputation.
Still, Marona stays optimistic and follows what her parents told her long ago: "Help people, and someday everyone will start to like you." Her goal is to save enough money to buy Phantom Isle, which she's currently renting. Like a subtle wave in the sea, the adventures of Marona and Ash are about to begin.
