E3 2019: Phantasy Star Online 2 is finally coming to the US in 2020

Better very, very late than never.

All right, so it has already been seven years and basically everyone who was excited about this game has probably long since given up hope on it. We’re not going to blame you if you thought that Phantasy Star Online 2 was a lot cause. But guess what? It’s happening! The game is getting localized according to Microsoft’s E3 conference, with a planned launch of spring 2020.

Yes, that means another year-long wait until it actually happens, but the important thing is that it will be localized and available in the US on Xbox and PC with crossplay. Since Microsoft has been pushing hard on the crossplay for PC, that’s an unsurprising caveat. We’ll no doubt learn more in the months to come, but for now the reality of its localization is surprising enough.

I just started playing the JP version a couple weeks ago because I finally accepted that the game was never coming to the West, and then it gets announced for the West. (Now all I have to do is give up on Dragon Quest X, then start playing the JP version of that. It could happen .. )

I remember playing PSO about 18 years ago (whoa) on my dreamcast. That game blew my mind at the time, even though I couldn’t play it online because the internet was not a thing that existed where I lived (except for the odd stint on dial up which tied up the phone line and cost a penny a minute, also the dreamcast had a 33k modem lmao.)

Any excitement I had for this game is long gone now; but I still see people talking about it often, so I figure it must be doing well in Nihon.

I remember playing Phantasy Star Universe back in the day, this looks to be a few steps up. Throw in a WW2 battleship and I might just have to give this a try.
