You can find him and Tails in the game for on the next three Fridays. More specifically those dates are: April 18, April 25 and May 2.


Unfortunately, this news is relevant for few people since the US servers for Phantasy Star Blue Burst are offline. Well, if you’re in Japan and still play Phantasy Star Online your PSO avatar can meet Sonic.

    Is that screen actually from Blue Burst?

    Pretty Dreamcast-esc if you ask me!

    But WOW, Sonic and Tails are in their Adventure 2 models! O_O


  • Drkirby

    Most likely they didn’t want to put a days work into making models for a cameo, so they just took the newest thing that the engine could render easily.

  • Furyhunter

    Unfortunately this is nothing special, considering these very models have been available in the game since… dreamcast v1. Who would’ve thought a rereleased game would reuse content. le gasp

    They are infact NOT duplicates of the SA2 models.

  • the render was and will be a issu of time, so that`s is the reason that they choose this way. maybe when computers will become more and more powerfull it will be differnt.

    The skins are already a part of the games, they’re built in to blue burst, that’s a fact. Hacking on the offical servers and trainers on the private ones allow you to use Sonic, Tails and Knuckles skins, along with other NPC’s from PSO and the game master skin.
