Phantasy Star Online 2 Hitting Vita Next Year...Presumably
It's never a good idea to assume but then again...it can be fun.
Sega has announced that Phantasy Star Online 2 will launch in North America and Europe next year. The long-anticipated sequel will adopt the controversial free-to-play format when it arrives.
The only downside is that the publisher didn't mention platforms. We're fairly certain it'll come to the PC but beyond that, we can only guess based on the Japanese platforms: It's already out on PC in Japan, and PSO2 is also slated to hit the PlayStation Vita, iOS, and Android platforms. Therefore, we'd like to assume that a Vita iteration is coming our way, too.
If you don't remember, the first PSO launched on the Dreamcast back in 2001 and was one of the very first subscription-based MMOs on consoles. It gained quite the loyal following and those fans have been waiting for a sequel...okay, it's a really long wait, but other PSO titles have dropped in between, including Phantasy Star Revolution, which came to the PS2, Xbox 360 and PC. Yeah, PS2; it was on the cusp of the new generation; the 360 was already out but the PS3 wasn't.
