E3 2019: It's Finally Happening -- Phantasy Star Online 2 Coming West, On Xbox One
The day long anticipated has finally arrived -- almost. After announcements (in 2012!), delays, cancellations, guarantees, trolling, and more than a little ribbing of Magicman and his love for the game, it's now official (again): Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to the West.
At today's Xbox presentation at E3, fans -- or is that phans? -- were treated to a trailer that touted "Japan's greatest online RPG," which will arrive with "online action combat with cross-play" (between Xbox and PC), "all the content," "all the bosses and epic battles," and will be "all free to play." I haven't even been looking forward to this game for most of this decade, and that trailer even pumped me up.
(Speaking of people who have been looking forward to it, though: I texted Magicman as soon as the trailer was revealed, about half an hour ago, and he hasn't responded. Frankly, I'm worried that he's fainted. Could someone in the Byrne household please check up on him?)
We're hearing that the game will be launching sometime in 2020, and this time, we believe Sega. Well, mostly. They couldn't pull the rug out from under us again, could they?
