Phantasy Star Online 2 hits PC next week, Miku concert coming soon

More info on the PC release ‘coming soon’

After many long years, Phantasy Star Online 2 finally arrived in the west this past April in Xbox One form. But just releasing on Xbox One alone was never the plan, as a muddled marketing message inadvertently stated when the localization was revealed during E3 2019. As it turns out, the PC was always slated to get a western edition too, and that day has come: next week.

Announced by the way of the game’s official Twitter account, PSO 2 will launch on PC (Windows 10) next week on May 27. Sega says that more info is “coming soon” on their official website, which will probably provide an FAQ for details like potential cross-progression and the like. Either way, this is great news as PSO 2 only gets more enticing the bigger the playerbase is.

In other PSO 2 news, fictional idol Hatsune Miku is joining the existing Megurine Luka for in-game performances in the main hub. Sega has posted a “concert schedule” for the pair, with “shows” rotating times on a daily basis, with at least two during the weekday and three on weekends from May 19 through May 25. Each performance lasts around 10 minutes.

A crossover concert schedule for an online RPG? I love how weird Phantasy Star Online is.
