    Japan….stop with the damn content updates! That way SEGA can actually release the US version with the same content as the latest Japanese update, but if Japan keeps updaing, then…..I fear we may NEVER get our grubby hands on this…

    • Altin

      It’s getting more and more doubtful that we are going to get this game over here. The only option Sega would have with this was to make Global Servers instead of Region Servers like they did in PSU.

      • Ferrick

        oh god, i don’t want them to make this into another PSU (network wise)

        • Altin

          Sadly, they plan to go with the seperated Server model. I just hope that even though they do it like this that there wont be such a delay between American and Japanese updates..

    • Brion Valkerion

      yeah that killed PSO and PSU, such a stupid update model that does not fly in this day and age… heck it did not fly in 2000 when PSO was on dreamcast lol.

    • The Watcher

      face it. Lets stop waiting and move on.

    • eilegz

      pack it up :( im still waiting for psp2 infinity :(

      • Tyler Beale

        I’m also waiting for PSPo2 to be put back on PSN so I can play it on that wonderful Sony handheld called the PS Vita.

    • Sergio Briceño

      I think it’s an ok model. I mean, the game is free. They need to continously release new premium content or they won’t be making any money (aside from Fanta advertising).

      About us getting the same up to date content, NOT A CHANCE and you know it. Two different markets and waaaay too much content to cover (and money to make with episodic releases).

      I’m with you though, in the part where I want a decent (much of the current content Japan already has) and fast localization (Q3 2013 for ep1 and hopefully Q2 2014 for ep2).

    Meanwhile in the west…


  • speedstersonic

    Really hate sega’s US division the last few years. T.T

    Never gonna get this game…

  • Ferrick

    Fans: But what about pso2 D=
    SoA: No! You will get sonic, and you will love it!
    Fans: but…

    • gk2012

      Don’t worry, we had Sonic shoved into our faces on PSO2 too.

      You don’t wanna know how many times I had to listen to Escape From The City in continuous loop while in the ship lobby.XD

      • Ferrick

        i know… i was there…
        made this pic as a result of that…

      …at the legion of Sega…

      • Dr. Eggman: Gentlemen, BEHOLD! My greatest creation!
        *unveils creation*

        Scourge: It’s… another robot. But in white pajamas?

        Dr. Eggman: Quiet, you! Don’t you notice the resemblance? I have created the GRRRRRREATEST weapon! Metal Sanshiro!

        Scourge: Y-you fool! You’ve doomed us all! *flees*

        Dr. Egman: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes, TREMBLE!!! *activates weapon* Now go, my son! Deliver our newest console, the Sega Pluto! See to to it that all the masses on this world are playing with it! You know what to do if they refuse or ignore it.

        Metal Sanshiro: SANSHIRO!!!

        ~And thus begins the End of All Life on Earth~

        Dr. Eggman: I suddenly feel like I’m the only relevant villain in all of Sega’s Rogue Gallery… if you can call it that.

  • Ardus

    Really?! pirates? now japans just rubbing salt in the wound.

  • grrr come on SoA how long do we have to wait? =(

  • Vesperion

    You guys are doing it wrong

    Meanwhile in the West……

    • Tyler Beale

      Sega, do as Haruhi says…please?!

  • harmonyworld

    Needs to be in english~

  • Chaos_Knight

    This gives a WHOLE NEW meaning to Pirates vs Ninjas.

  • Brandonmkii

    Aw yis. Got my meseta saved for that Alvira set. So ready. SO READY.

    • Ferrick

      aww yiss, got my katana and meseta boost ready for mesetan

  • Brion Valkerion

    I gave up waiting and just went back to the Japanese version. Now there is a mostly done story, quest, and menu translation and a website with the full item catalog translated, so its super easy to play now.

    Don’t know what they could possibly be waiting on with this release in the west but… w/e it is has to be pretty stupid since there is less and less people outside Japan talking about the game.

    • Tyler Beale

      Nobody is talking about the game because SEGA has yet to provide any updates. Hell, it even had a playable demo (at E3 and the like) in English.

  • Judgephoenix

    I’m ok if it is seperate servers, I just beg they don’t remove any of the collaborations like Border Break or Virtua Fighter.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Considering SoA didn’t even know what Streets of Rage was (thus why the DC game never came to happen) I wouldn’t be surprised if they ignore PSO2 exists~.

    • Ferrick

      they do know it exists, they’ve even made a website for it already, but it has not been updated since 2012

  • The Watcher

    Most of your PC’s can’t even handle this baby. Trust me don’t waste your time hoping for a lost cause.

  • Masa

    SoA and Europe are so slow….still waiting on Yakuza 5 announcement, not gonna happen though right?

  • Invisbin

    I’m just beginning to think they cancelled it. I’m seriously considering boycotting.

  • Kai2591

    Nope. Nobody outside Japan wants to play this game. Nuh-uh.
    We’re not eagerly waiting for it. Nope.
    Not. One. Bit.

    • Tyler Beale

      Lol, sarcasm…

  • It seems the theory of the unified servers is true. SEGA Japan doesn´t give a damn about the international fanbase and that´s what is dooming us all :/
