Sega say that Episode 2 will feature new classes, a new race and new planets as well.

    This is how you make a game f2p, and still being able to kick ass.

    • Still US needs the Vita version of the game, Sony have been pushing Japan but US/EU/UK still exist…I guess its more the Game Companies than Sony itself.

  • natchu96

    Guys, we all know what the pale skin probably means, right?

    • Sergio Briceño

      Nope. Please tell, I haven’t played PSO2 yet. If you mean a race from PSU/PSP then it’s been a long time so I really don’t remember…

      PD: Lol, from the video thumbnail I thought they had opted for a cell shaded look for Episode 2, how silly of me.

    • ZEROthefirst

      Time for Dumans to run around with ridiculous attack power and little to no defense lol.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      time to travel to Gurhal

    i wonder when will it finally come to the west i think around summer will get some news and around winter will get the game , they did that with phantasy star portable 2

    • Or when they are still keeping quiet about a release in the west with “game delayed, info will soon follow” comments and then a month or so later(exageration I know) and still no new info about a western release. Then the Japanese version get´s a full blown edition like a episode 2? We will not see the first episode before the Japanese market sees the second episode and we will forever be left behind.

      Sega of America does it again apparently… ruining game experiences for their fans everywhere :(

      Yes I´m sad and pessimistic but I´ve been waiting for this game since it was first announced as being released in Japan. Last year they announced it was coming west with a “early 2013” release. Now it´s changed to “release in 2013”. The japanese version gets more and more content which means that Sega of America will need to work harder and harder to bring it over…

      Which feels a bit out of place for how Sega of America works…

        which means that Sega of America will need to work harder and harder to bring it over…
        I have a feeling they are just gonna say screw it at some point.
        I mean, Japan is getting episode too and we dont even have a release date.

        • Yes, that was indeed what I said :) Or trying to say at least…

      • Takui Nanao

        thats what i mean like cmn japan is like getting further and further and west is like … soon…soon. ( and when sega says “soon” for some reason it just magically happens to be after like a decade or at least 3 months ) i was thinking maybe its cuz of soul sacrifice ? u know its a big deal and a good game so they are saving phantasy star for later? maybe?

        • I have no idea. Checking they seem more interested in small games like Spiral Knights and Godsrule…

          I don´t really care what they do or why they do it. I just want to be informed. If there is a delay for this game then I want to know the reasons for it.

          If they decide to wait and work on Episode 2 before releasing the eng version so we will get both episodes in one go then I´m fine with that. Then I know what is happening. But from the announcement last July they have not said anything about the game. All that has been mentioned is the things they did for PAX last year and how well visited their booth was.

          I mean there is an audience for this game. People that want to play it and they just make a homepage with basically no info on it, they link to a FB account that hasn´t seen an update since last PAX and the blog hasn´t said a thing about it since August :(

          Why can´t they release the character editor at least so we can play around with that?

          • Takui Nanao

            yea i hear you , i dont get it either, seems like a troll they get all hopes up then just leave , and ur like stuck with nthn, character editor is a good idea,

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Dumans? So the seeds returned?! hmmmmm

  • kaizin

    nice teaser if the dumans are coming this is going to be fun cant wait to see more.

  • Looks like I will have to buy a memory card just to play phantasy star

    • ViewtifulBo

      You could just buy the physical copy, I’ve been playing it for about a week now and its the best vita RPG I’ve played so far

      • Ah yes.That would be the best.But do you think the physical copy will be released in the west?

  • Prinny Dood

    have faith guys will get ours soon enough, if not we still have other games coming.

  • Vash bane

    it might be my imagination because I use one on the psp title but did I just see dumans?

  • Kai2591

    Where’s that picture of a skeleton? WHERE IS ITTT
