A few of us have put up with the Japanese client and difficult communication to play Phantasy Star Online 2 but that should all end soon. The community and I have been begging for it and it appears that it’s finally going to happen. According to PSO-World, Sega will officially announce an international release of the F2P sci-fi hack-n-slash MMORPG for 2013.
Producer Satoshi Sakai touts the title to the western audience as a unique experience every time you login. “The number one thing we want to provide players in Phantasy Star Online 2 is an adventure that changes every time they log in. Just as great table-top RPG experiences revolve around imaginative and unexpected encounters, we want players to consistently be surprised as they explore dungeons and undertake quests,” said Sakai.
Don’t believe us? The official international site is bare but online now.
Eleven years after Phantasy Star Online broke console barriers, the western market will enjoy a proper sequel. Phantasy Star Online 2 launched in Japan last week.
