RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.

Philosoma was one of the first games announced for the PlayStation. It also got a sequel in 2001 for the PlayStation 2, exclusively in Japan, titled Phase Paradox which, despite the first game being a shooter, was a survival horror game.

Regional Differences

To do:
Upload the unused FMV?
  • The European version has a subtitle option for cutscenes, and multiple languages.
  • In the western versions, the bosses will slowly turn red as they are nearing death, in the Japanese version this doesn't happen.
  • The Japanese version has a bonus ending message from Rika Takahashi after the credits if you finish the game in Normal/Hard without using continues.
  • The Japanese version gives you 5 credits, and when you use a continue you start on the same area you died. The western versions only give you 3 credits, and you are sent back to the beginning of the level.
  • In the Japanese version, you can select your starting stage after beating the game on its respective difficulty.
  • There are three ending epilogue FMVs inside the disc. One narrated by the male main character, another by the female sidekick, and another by the computer. In the Japanese version, you only get the ones narrated by the female sidekick by beating the game in Normal, and the one narrated by the computer by beating the game in Hard. In the western versions, instead of getting the one narrated by the female sidekick, you get the one narrated by the main character. However, all three FMVs are inside the disc and the unused one was even translated. It is unknown if there's a way to see all three FMVs in the same region.
