Phantasy Star Online 2 getting closed English beta in South East Asia

We already knew that there was an English version of Phantasy Star Online 2 headed for South East Asia and now ASIASOFT (co-publishers) are teasing their ‘soon’ to start closed beta by releasing the above trailer and screenshots.Sadly, SEGA West hasn’t announced anything outside of their PAX announcement about Phantasy Star Online 2, seemingly disbanding the project. I guess for gamers like you and me, the wait for a English version of Phantasy Star Online 2 will be over…

Since this is for South East Asia, it will be a bit hard to get a key to the close beta, but don’t worry it won’t impossible. The following are community moderators at Asiasoft which will be giving out beta codes. Go ask them nicely:

We are working on getting some beta keys for the site and giving you guys more content as it gets closer to beta time. Who is excited? English site can be found here.

    Is SEGABits going to have a clan when it’s officially out? I want to be a catboy gunner.

    It still just completely blows my mind that Sega of America/Europe are seemingly uninterested in releasing the game over here, even after an official English translation is in active development. And now they’re just focused on Sonic yearly releases, while Sega of Japan keeps on churning out new Yakuzas and other fun bits and bobs that we never see. I’m sad.

      The most heartbreaking part is that they promised it ages ago and are still pretending it is being worked on without saying a damn thing about it. It’s rude.

    Looks like this version will be IP blocked outside of Southeast Asia.
