Phantasy Star Online 2’s $60 founder’s pack dresses you up like Sonic

Irresistible

A lot of people have been waiting nearly a decade to finally play Phantasy Star Online 2. In those first minutes with the game, why not make things weird and dress up like a low-rent Sonic the Hedgehog cosplayer?

Sega’s immediately monetizing Phantasy Star Online 2 when it comes west on March 17 with the open beta, and it’s in the form of a $60 Sonic-focused founder’s pack. Your character could wear this approximation of Sonic’s look that’s held together with a lot of tape. Throw the Sonic mask on to really nail the uncanny valley aesthetic.

That $60 gets you more than just the Sonic garb. It also comes with a 30-day premium subscription and a bunch of consumables. One of the more interesting perks are the five Ragol Memories which grant cosmetics from the original PSO (which can include costumes). Also, it’s worth noting that a one-month premium subscription costs approximately $13 on its own.

It’s pricey for what it is, but anyone who doesn’t need to look like Sonic won’t get gouged. PSO2 is free-to-play apart from the microtransactions. But, combining two of Sega’s most popular franchises will take a few gold rings.

Here’s everything that’s included in the PSO2 Sonic collaboration founder’s pack:

  • Male Sonic suit
  • Female Sonic suit
  • Sonic Hair 1
  • Sonic Hair 2
  • Emotes 602: Sonic and Tails
  • Sonic Knuckles weapon camo
  • Sonic mask
  • Ragol Memory (5)
  • Inventory expansion (5)
  • 30 days of premium subscription service
  • Mission Pass Gold Ticket
  • Beauty Salon free pass (1)
  • Character storage expansion (5)
  • +150% EXP earned (15)
  • +125% Triboost (10)
  • Grinder (500)
  • AC Scratch Ticket (12)
  • +50% Great Enhancement Aid (99)
