Phantasy Star Online 2 Launches for PC in North America on May 27th

Attention, ARKS soldiers! Phantasy Star Online 2, after being Japan-only for many years, is making its way to PC via the Microsoft Store on May 27th in North America!

Fred White, PSO2 TEAM North America’s Marketing said this about the game’s PC release:

“We’re thrilled to announce the long-awaited arrival on PC. There’s a loud and passionate PC fanbase who has been patiently waiting for the North American version — we can’t wait to welcome them in. There will be login bonuses waiting for them with more surprises planned in the coming months.”

With over 3 years of content and all quality-of-life updates from the Japanese version, Phantasy Star Online 2 also includes fully localized text and an English dub. Furthermore, the Xbox One and PC releases will feature cross-platform play, allowing you to team up with your friends through various missions on either of the platforms you choose.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently available on Xbox One and is in the midst of its first collaboration event in North America: Hatsune Miku. Using Arks Cash Scratch Tickets, you can unlock collaborative clothing and accessories of Hatsune Miku along with other vocaloids Megurine Luka, Kagamine Rin and Len.
