Phantasy Star Online 2 producer tells us whats in store for 2014


Satoshi Sakai recently wished all Phantasy Star Online 2 fans a ‘Happy New Year’ and briefly talked about what is in store for the future of Phantasy Star Online 2. He promised finishing off Episode 2′ final storyline (yes, it has a story!) and other lose ends. But you know what is also launching? Phantasy Star Online 2 es! What is that? Oh, its that mobile version they announced along with the PC/Vita versions of the game. Yes, that is finally coming out this year.

They will also have new events including Arcs Coalition Festivals that starts this month and around March they will introduce a new update that will allow people to team up with Mamoru Nagano (a mangaka that worked on Heavy Metal L-Gaim, Five Star Stories and Gothicmade). 2014 will also mark the 2nd year anniversary of Phantasy Star Online 2, which they promise will have a big celebration. Yes, the game is already reaching its 2nd year of release in Japan and here we sit waiting for SEGA West the English version…

But don’t worry, we already know that the game will be launching in full English later this year… in Southeast Asia! Since many Westerners already play the Japanese version with a patch, I assume many will just download the English Southeast Asian version and play that. I’ll catch you guys on those servers later this year!

    There is only one problem with wanting to play on the Southeast Asia servers… The fact that they do not take $USD…. What? you were seriously expecting NOT to invest money into this game after waiting for an English release?

      Yep, I was going to post this. The point of free-to-play model is to get people to purchase in-game stuff and SEGA West not capitalizing it (aka releasing it here) is retarded… that means people that want to give SEGA money will have extra hurdles.

  2. What the crap? Why would they make an English version and not bring it to Europe / North America?

    Absolutely disgraceful how Sega still can’t even bring themselves to bring this, one of their biggest IPs, to Western territories, there’s no excuse, the market potential is clearly there.

    “a new update that will allow people to team up with Mamoru Nagano”
    This is not correct (or it’s the wording in the phrase that makes it sound wrong?), the update is a collaboration between SEGA and Mamoru Nagano, characters and items designed by him will be added to the game.
