Sega Fantasy is bringing Star Online 2 to the West, more than seven years after the online role-playing game hit Windows PC in Japan. Fantasy Star Online 2 will be released for Windows PC and Xbox One in the spring.
PSO2 will be free to play and download on Xbox One.
Fantasy Star Online 2 will support crossplay on both platforms and will be free-to-play. Sega will bring all the content released for online RPGs so far.
There will be no limit on game experiences such as class level caps or direct purchase of high-level weapons as we want to provide a fair and exciting experience to all players. If players still need assistance for their quest, micro transport exists to help. In Fantasy Star Online 2, players become members of a research expedition known as a fleet of ships researching various planets called Ark. Players can embark on mission quests and play in groups of 12 players.
Sega initially released Fantasy Star Online 2 on PC in Japan, and later switched the game to the mobile platform, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, unlike its Dreamcast predecessor, but PSO 2 never arrived in the states.
The game was featured at events such as PAX in 2012, but Sega has never localized the game until now.
It is a successor to the 2000 Sega Dreamcast title Fantasy Star Online, Fantasy Star Online 2 is a continuation of the online RPG that made the first game so popular when it was first released. Tweet from saga was that “unfortunately there is nothing to confirm right now” in this regards a release in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, “we consider it a matter of disappointment, but when we have more news to share Yes, we will.”
Fantasy Star Online 2 will be available to play in Spring 2020.
