Since its western release earlier this year, Phantasy Star Online 2 is fast becoming known for two things: surprise announcements and weird crossovers. We’ve got both today, as SEGA revealed that it’s got another collab launching, this one with the Persona franchise.
“Starting today, costumes, hair styles, paint, accessories, room items, music and more from Persona 3, 4, 5 will be featured in the latest AC Scratch Ticket collection. Also, two special live events are scheduled,” the company says. “The worlds of two games collide! PSO2 players can don costumes and hairstyles, perform emotes, decorate their rooms with new items, play iconic music tracks and get new pets from the Persona collection. Drawing an AC Scratch Ticket offers a chance to obtain these items and more. Players will recognize in-game items from Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5.”
As for the announcement? Apparently the game’s reached a million players over all of its platforms and will be boosting experience and drop rates in celebration starting next week from August 19th through 26th.
“For a limited time, EXP, Rare Drop, and Rare Enemy Spawn Rates will all be increased +100%! What’s more, all players will have the opportunity to receive up to 2 Million EXP through EXP Tickets. Additionally, players who log in for more than five days during the event period will be entered into a drawing to win 10,000 AC, 1000 SG, or 10 AC Scratch Tickets. There will be 100 randomly selected winners for each prize.”
