Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity to feature Colonel Sanders

Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity is one of the two projects SEGA has planned for Phantasy Star Online’s 10th anniversary. What better way to celebrate the 10 years than going on co-op missions with Mr. Sanders himself? I could actually think of 10 thousand other things, but this is what you get.

Why is this happening? I guess KFC is having a anniversary, 40 years ago they opened up the first KFC in Japan. So this is why they are doing this cross promotion. You will be able to take missions and play them with Colonel Sanders helping you out.

    I would've never guessed who Colonel Sanders was… I started pushing my memory to remember who the hell he is, then in the next paragraph you mention KFC, lol.

    Sonic Team has worked with McDonalds with Sonic themed Handheld games and stuff. Now why have they jumped ship to KFC?

    I don't know about America but in Pakistan McDonalds is a much bigger success, and since Sega already had a relationship with McDonalds why not include Ronald he is much more famous anyways?

    @Cube: It's because he's a military man, that's why. It makes perfect sense :).

    They teamed up with Pizza Hut in the original PS Portable2.

    It's all in good fun…

    I can't speak from a Japanese standpoint, though he's clearly a big name there, but in America he's almost as recognizable as Ronald. This is easily ten times more awesome than if they tried to include a goofy red haired clown. So badass.

    McDonald's is a much bigger success worldwide than any other fast food chain, KFC included. But the fact remains that Ronald would lose his shit on the battlefield… quite literally. Colonel Sanders is a hard-drinking, two-fisted, bastard's bastard — not to mention quite the ladies' man — with a passion for random battles.

    Racist

    Next we need The Fonz again!

  10. Awesome. Out of the chains that I saw in Japan, pretty much every KFC has a statue of The Colonel out front. McDonalds was the same with Ronald.
