Sega will honor the series with the Sympathy concert

Looks like Sega is back to being awesome again. On March 30th they will be holding a very special one night symphonic tribute to the Phantasy Star series, promising special guests and music pieces from nearly all major Phantasy Star titles released. Titled Sympathy, the event celebrates the 25 years the series has enjoyed, and famous voice actress Atsuko Enomoto, a longtime fan of the games, and Yuji Naka will be hosting the festivities. Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra will be doing the music, conducted by Masamichi Amano.

And as a special guest, Daytona USA and Shenmue composer Takenobu Mitsuyoshi will also take the stage as a vocalist for the "Go Infinity" piece.

Sega is also advertising a lot of exclusive music item codes to be use in Phantasy Star Online 2 will be sold at the venue. No words whether this concert will be recorded, but I'm sure if you guys nag enough at Sega, they'll show you some sympathy too and release an album.
