Five Star Stories’ Mecha Designer Invades Phantasy Star Online 2

By Eugene . January 15, 2014 . 5:30pm


As we noted earlier, come March there’ll be a tie up between Phantasy Star Online 2 and legendary mangaka Mamoru Nagano of Five Star Stories’ and Heavy Metal L-Gaim fame. To get in on the goodies, though, it seems you’ll need to pick up a new deluxe package product version that will arrive 20th March.


Within the product are lots of Nagano-designed items. These include costumes, voice changes, hairstyles, weapon sets and so forth. There will also be a music CD and various other in-game premium items.


The front cover art above features allies defending a mining facility against a Dark Biburasu monster. It doesn’t seem to have been designed by Nagano, however.


Phantasy Star Online 2 is out now on PC and PlayStation Vita, with an English release some time this year in Southeast Asia. Keep praying for that US and Europe release!

    “Phantasy Star 3 coming in 2015! — US receives Phantasy Star 2 in 2016”

    Oh Mamoru Nagano I love your design…meanwhile…4ever waiting.

  • Wonder what kind of monster designs Nagano will contribute to PSO2?

    I can say that his Mortar Headd designs as mecha from FSS is very beautiful

  • KoRLumen

    … is that you, Kabuterimon?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      nope, Lucemon Satan Mode

    • Sergio Briceño

      Probably megakabuterimon

  • TheGunheart

    Oh god, the Cast costumes that could come from this…GIMMIE!

    I know I’ll get flac for this but I honestly don’t like PSO2 compared to the rest of the series… ok I like it more than the Universe series but that was pretty bad until PSP2 came out. Aside from the gameplay everything just turns me off from it. I know I’ll play it when/if it eventually comes out in the West, but I doubt I’m going to put much time into it and I’ll probably play as much as I did on the Japanese server by only casually playing every other month.

    Does it have an automatic win button like LED Mirage?

    Please say it has an automatic win button.

  • michel

    Yes… We keep praying…

  • Veratomos

    That guy, most of his fanbase is like in their 30’s/40’s and im like 20. I felt old already, i need more new fans to have more discussion of FSS series.

    Please make some mecha designs and put them in SRW even though we know you dont like your designs getting fictionally damaged by other robots.
    Sigh, one can dream….

    PSO2 is a good start and i would get one if i ever buy a vita ;S

    So…expect Buster Launcher-esque weapons?
