For the sequel to the beloved Sega MMORPG on the SEGA Dreamcast (also GameCube and Xbox) based on the premiere JRPG series from SEGA’s early days, it’s been a vague public relations journey for the request of localization for Phantasy Star Online 2. It was very worrying to hear months ago that bringing Phantasy Star Online 2 to western shelves was put on the back burner, but Sega’s twitter post in response to a fan question seemingly negates the foul cry with a confirmation that Phantasy Star Online 2 is only “delayed” and is still being worked on for a western release.
@Japan_Game_Love PSO2 is still delayed. SEGA is currently working on bringing PSO2 to the West and will update as soon as we know more.

It’s pleasing news to hear, but Sega has not made a release date or any specific platform announcements for western regions public. So the wait for this highly anticipated MMORPG is still on. We here at oprainfall wish the best of luck for this game to hit North America and Europe as soon as possible.
Phantasy Star Online 2 was released in Japan on the PC July 4th of 2012 with releases for other platforms following it the past two years, such as the PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android. Stay tuned here at oprainfall for updates.
