Phantasy Star Online 2 PS Vita release date

Sega have confirmed the release date for the PS Vita version of Phantasy Star Online 2 to be February 28. The game will be free to play, but will be monetised by purchasable in-game items.

While Phantasy Star Online 2 will be free to download, there will be a retail package. The package will be ¥5,229 and will include:

  • Two costumes Phantasy Star Portable 2 for each race
  • Three weapons from Phantasy Star Portable 2
  • A Mag evolution device
  • Premium Set for 30 days
  • Fun 1000 ticket
  • Decorative Little Wing Stickers
  • A music disk with songs from Phantasy Star Portable and Portable 2

Players, whether on the PC and PS Vita, will be able to play together on the same server. Character data can also be shared between the two systems.

      It’s free to play right? Can we just download the JP version and play that, or is it regional locked?

      But even so I still wish for an English version.

    Have you been paying attention to the news? PS Vita IS region locked despite what Sony say. Memory Cards are LOCKED to the PS Vita’s, meaning you CAN’T change PSN accounts to play foreighn games. If you have a US PS Vita it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to play and download DLC from Europe or Japan. Short answer to your question, NO, you can’t play PSO if you don’t have a Japanese PS Vita. Ths game will most likely NOT come to the US anyway. Don’t get your hopes up for a game you will probably NEVER see.
