Sega, listen up. As you may or may not be aware of, the original Phantasy Star Online was my digital crack. Screw Everquest, screw Ultima and even screw World of Warcraft (Yeah I went there!). I played PSO damned near everyday, played every class and even after I was hacked (Null) several times I still went back for more. I was addicted to it so much that I even went and got PSO for the Gamecube, yes both Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II and Phantasy Star Online Episode III C.A.R.D. Revolution, not too sure what you were thinking entirely with the later but it was a decent spin on a loved series.
Hell I still play Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst to this day, even though the official severs are down, we gamers will find a way! So it’s a little disturbing to see that even after all the coverage on Phantasy Star Online 2 and countless times I’ve drooled after watching footage of the game, you have yet to announce if this gem is going to be released anywhere outside of Japan.
I mean really Sega? Don’t pull a Capcom! You know, how they created perhaps one of the better Monster Hunter titles in some time; Monster Hunter Frontier, and didn’t release it anywhere out of Japan. Oh and it was on PC / Windows, so I don’t get that. Sega, I beg of you, please listen to your remaining fan base cause let’s be honest. After all of the constant failures on creating a Sonic title that gamers wanted, you finally succeeded with Sonic Generations and look at what happened! It sold pretty well, didn’t it? So we’re now asking you to please release Phantasy Star Online 2 outside of Japan. We need this game to be world wide. We want this, badly. Hell look around the internet, check out the forums, you’ll see that ‘were just drooling over this game.
Sega, Phantasy Star Online 2, US / EU release, announce it!
