Good news, PC players who have been waiting patiently on Phantasy Star Online to come your way… You only have a smidge over a week left to wait. Today, SEGA announced via Twitter that the game would be hitting PC on May 27.

While the full details on the PC launch are slated to be revealed later — “soon” according to the Tweet — we do know one important thing about it. If you plan to play on PC and you don’t have Windows 10 yet for some reason, you’re going to need to get on that. If the tweet is anything to go by — and we can’t imagine them mentioning a specific operating system if it wasn’t important — Windows 10 is the only viable option.

If that’s not good enough news on the PSO 2 front, there’s also something cool happening for all you Xbox One players. SEGA has also announced the Virtual Stars AC Scratch Ticket. This even is the first in-game collaboration available to North American players and brings virtual pop idol Hatsune Miku and her friends to the game — or at least replicas of their outfits for players to enjoy.

Of course, since Hatsune Miku and friends are all entertainers, it wouldn’t make sense to have a collaboration without there being some sort of concert. So, beginning today, and running through May 25, Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka will can be seen in the Live Stage Event “Living Universe”. A schedule of all their appearances is available on the PSO2 site. There are several each day of the event, so everyone should be able to catch at least one of them.

QuintLyn is a long-time lover of all things video game related will happily talk about them to anyone that will listen.

For the past five years she's been a writer at Gamebreaker TV.

  1. PSO2’s been around for some time, and runs on Win7 currently in JP. But roughly the same time that M$ announced that they’d no longer support Win7 did Sega JP also put out a statement that they would no longer support it either… sometime Summer 2020, if I recall.

    Seeing how Sega works (or doesn’t) between their national branches, I have a hard time believing that JP dropping Win7 support has anything to do with the western release, however.
