Holy crap, Phantasy Star Online 2 is finally coming to the West in spring 2020

At Microsoft's E3 conference today, Sega dropped a huge surprise: Phantasy Star Online 2, which has been locked to Japan and Asia for many, many years, is coming West. The MMORPG is releasing on Xbox and PC in Spring 2020.

Unfortunately details are scarce. What we do know is that Phantasy Star Online 2 will be free-to-play and it will include all of the updates and content currently available in the East. So, this sounds like the English-language port people have been begging for.

When he's not 50 hours into a JRPG or an opaque ASCII roguelike, Wes is probably playing the hottest games of three years ago. He oversees features, seeking out personal stories from PC gaming's niche communities. 50% pizza by volume.
