It’s been more than two years since Phantasy Star Online 2 launched in Asia just about as long since anything was posted on the game’s English-language Facebook page or website, leaving North American gamers to wait… and wait… and wait for it to hit Western shores. Or to hear anything about it hitting Western shores.
Good news! It’s still coming… someday! Soon(TM)?
SEGA responded to a Tweet recently to let everyone know that the game is still planned for Westernization and a North American launch, though no time frame, or reason for the delay — the game was originally slated for an NA launch in 2013 — was given:
@Japan_Game_Love PSO2 is still delayed. SEGA is currently working on bringing PSO2 to the West and will update as soon as we know more.

Well, that’s better than nothing, I suppose. How about you? Are you looking forward to PSO2? Or has the allure of the series died down due to the delays?
