Prepare to be pleased as Phantasy Star Online 2 has been announced!

Spotted over at segabits.com it appears that Sega has officially announced a sequel to the original Phantasy Star Online! The game was revealed during Sega’s TGS livestream and although details are slim this has been one of the most exciting announcements I’ve heard in a long time. With many of the Phantasy Star games going portable lately I hope to see PSO2 be a big console release. Some gorgeous HD visuals on my 360/PS3 would certainly be nice.

It’s definitely a good time to be a Phantasy Star fan.

    I’m beginning to think that this trailer was accidentally shown too early because I’ve been sitting here fighting sleep for the past two hours and all they keep showing is the same trailers over and over again but no PSO2. I followed a link to the trailer on youtube but it’s already been taken down.

    Considering what I said in the PSU review, yeah… I’m pretty much going to have to be on this from day one. Especially interested to see how the fighting system will work. Damn, that was an announcement I really wasn’t expecting.

  • I doubt any detailed information has been leaked out on this one, but I’m hoping that if you decide to purchase PSO2, you won’t have to re-purchase a hunter’s license for online play. Although, I have a strange feeling that M$ is going to make us pay again, because it’s a new game.

    All-in-all though, I bet this game will rock as much as all of it’s predecessors have.

    Phantasy Star Episode 1 and 2 on my Gamecube. Those were the times. Nostalgia is getting the better of me. Sega I need this now!

    Sweet. It has been far to long since I have played a Phantasy Star game.
