Hey, everyone remember when Phantasy Star Online was one of the games for the Dreamcast?
Well, the series has continued on in various incarnations since those days, and the latest title has been announced for the PC in Japan. Interestingly enough, as revealed on Friday, Phantasy Star Online 2 will also be coming to the PlayStation Vita.
Initially, it was only confirmed for the PC but a new video (see it below) confirms that the Vita version of the new MMO will be ready to go next year. It also seems as if Vita and PC users will be able to play together in the engaging fantasy world, which is great news for fans. However, as you might expect, there's no word on whether or not PSO2 will come to North America. One might say the chances are slim, but you never know…maybe if it sells well enough in Japan…
I never got into PSO back in the old days. But I do know people who got hooked by that game; they claimed to spend hundreds of hours with it, and it was quite the phenomenon that they were going online with a console in that "old" generation. …see, "old" to me is like Atari.
