If Phantasy Star Online 2’s long-awaited arrival on western devices this past spring didn’t light your world on fire, then maybe you’ll be happier with Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, revealed at today’s Xbox Games Showcase. Twitter is currently busy arguing whether it’s a standalone game, expansion, or do-over, and apparently it’s a little bit of all three, as SEGA’s using the “2” but calling it a “redesign.”
“Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be coming in 2021! PSO2: NGS will surpass Phantasy Star Online 2 in every way, offering players limitless adventure and unparalleled character customization. The game has been redesigned as a best-in-class online action RPG experience!”
Here’s the whole trailer.
