Sega has released some details on the trial version of its GameCube online RPG, Phantasy Star Online Episode I and II. The trial version will feature three areas from Episode I and II, respectively. Among the three Episode II areas will be a new one called VR Temple, where users will have the chance to fight fairly strong enemies. While playing Episode I, users who don't level up their characters run the risk of facing a sudden death.
Phantasy Star Online Episode I and II is set for an August 8th release in Japan and an October 15th release on this side of the Pacific.
