Sega announces Phantasy Star Online 2 for PS4


Not for the West, obviously

Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 in Japan next year, Sega announced today.

The free-to-play online role-playing game initially launched on PC in 2012 and came to PlayStation Vita the following year. Last spring, PSO2 spread to Southeast Asia (Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines), courtesy of Bangkok-based MMO publisher Asiasoft.

While the prospect of a western localization is still up in the air, the SEA release features English-language support. However, Asiasoft has implemented an IP block to prevent prospective players living outside the region from accessing the game's servers. These restrictions were briefly lifted recently over connectivity issues, but were put back in place after the matter was resolved.

Make sure to let Sega know if you want to see Phantasy Star release outside of Asia. The company seems to be a tad more receptive to fans these days, and wants to rebuild trust in its brand.
