Phantasy Star Online 2 announced for English language release


An English language version of Phantasy Star Online 2 has been revealed for North American and European regions. A role playing game where players create their own characters to complete missions and search throughout the galaxy, the title reflects the online-focused design where friends or complete strangers are able to do all of this together if they so choose. Similarly to SEGA’s own Spiral Knights, Phantasy Star Online 2 will be completely free to download and require no subscription service to access the game.

A sequel to the influential original which originally released in 2000 on the Dreamcast and spawned the more action-oriented gameplay the series is now known for, Phantasy Star Online 2 will launch sometime early in 2013 on the PC. In Japan, the game will also be available on iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as the PlayStation Vita handheld, but no mentions of these were discussed in the announcement, or if the game will even receive the optional retail release Japan has. The announcement trailer has been included after the break.
