The surprising E3 news that Phantasy Star Online 2 was finally, finally coming to western shores in 2020 made all of our eyebrows shoot up here at Massively OP. We instantly started debating whether this would be a boon to the genre or if this seven-year-old game is too old to stir up much excitement these days.
I, for one, am glad that it is happening, as it’s been one of the most-requested imports since its 2012 Japanese debut. But will I be playing it? Probably, if only to sate my curiosity and see if this type of game is up my alley. I was too late for the original Phantasy Star Online back in the day, and that kind of bugs me.
What about you? Assuming you live in North America, are you going to play PSO2 on Steam next year? Are you excited, lukewarm, or cool toward its release here?
