Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium, known as Phantasy Star: Sennenki no Owari ni (ファンタシースター 千年紀の終りに) in Japan, is an entry in the Phantasy Star series. Phantasy Star IV marks the end of the "classic" Phantasy Star series, and was the last to be released for the Sega Mega Drive. In the US and Japan, it was overshadowed and outsold by the SNES exclusive Final Fantasy VI.

The series would continue after a six year gap with Phantasy Star Online for the Sega Dreamcast.

History

Development

Plans were put in place to include pseudo-3D stages like in the original Phantasy Star but the idea was scrapped during development.

A Sega Mega-CD version was announced, but was not released.
