Phantasy Star Online 2 Crosses Over With Sega Mech Arcade Game

By Ishaan . June 3, 2013 . 2:30pm

Border Break Union, a multiplayer Sega arcade shooter where you do battle using mechs, is crossing over with Phantasy Star Online 2.


For starters, Border Break’s Cougar NX mech will appear as a boss in Phantasy Star Online 2. Additionally, weapon drops like the SW Teardowner sword and D92 Janus twin machine guns (both below) will be available as part of the collaboration.



Defeating the Cougar NX boss will allow you to avail items such as the LE Rigel, a double saber weapon, as well as Ushiman clothing:



The Border Break Union collaboration will be in effect from June 12 to August 8th in Japan. You can view the full set of collaborative items in the trailer below:

    That ushiman costume makes me think of some delicious cow udder…
    Anyway, localization when?

  • KevTehNev

    Apparently the Ushiman Costume and the LE Rigel are only available to those who play both PSO2 and Border Break and do certain objectives in each game. BB gets some weapons from PSO2 from this and PSO2 gets the costume and weapon camo.

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    “No, not Virtual On…”

  • The Watcher

    Trailer had that Tales of the Abyss intro “feel” to it.

  • Kaitsu

    Every time I see “Phantasy Star Online 2” in the title, I keep getting my hopes up.

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      Sadly, I think these crossovers only make it more and more unlikely for the game to come over. Too many royalties to pay. PSO2 for the PSV will probably never happen in the West~.

      same here man same here

    For those who don’t know what Border Break is, here is a 24 hour stream of the game.

    Been up for months now, just an arcade cabinet hooked up to recording equipment. Usually its only the rolling demo til mid day Japanese standard time when people start hopping on to play matches. There’s another set up as well streaming the other team.

      we wont get it i think ,and god i love this post every time someone posts a pick like this at phantasy star online 2 makes the sad news abit better looking …

    • Vesperion

      I actually wasn’t gonna post in this one, but i suppose the tradition must be carried on lol

  • Judgephoenix

    Well just gonna accept the fate of this game either its gonna be announced at E3 or not coming at all. Even if it does they’ll remove half the content and re-skin it like they did PSU NA. I really won’t bother then :/.

  • Magus KilIer

    Is that a double bladed laser chainsaw?
    It looks as impractical as it looks awesome

  • gamefreak86

    Uh Sega. Where is the western release?

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    Sega said this game’s localization got “delayed”. That probably means we’re getting it around the same time as The Last Gaurdian, Final Fanstasy Versus 13, and Shenmue 3, which is never.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    This is probably the best and saddest collab for Phantasy here.T_T I really like these two games.(Border Break is like Break Blade on crack lol.^_^) And We know how great PSO series is.
    And the fact that these two gems is not even released here makes me sad.T_T
