A Closer Look At Attack on Titan Invading Phantasy Star Online 2

By Sato . March 14, 2014 . 9:30am

Attack on Titan has gained immense popularity around the world, and it comes as no surprise that Phantasy Star Online 2, which has done far wackier collaborations in the past, recently announced their latest collaboration to be with the growing anime franchise. 4Gamer gives us a closer look at some of the stuff the collaboration will include.

 

 

Here’s a look at the Colossal Titan just hanging out in the middle of the game’s lobby. Players won’t have to worry about being crushed, tackled, or eaten by it; but I wouldn’t get too close to it, just in case it decides to wreak havoc. There will also be Attack on Titan posters and more scattered around town.

The collaboration will also feature Attack on Titan’s Survey Corps gear, to go with their blades, which can be used as the game’s Twin Daggers and Wired Lance weapons. The costumes will come with all three division and the recruit emblem stickers, which can be switched out.

 

Female characters will be getting the only extra item with Mikasa’s scarf and hairstyle. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like male characters will be getting any extra items, but who needs that when you can scope out all the Mikasas running around!

 

Phantasy Star Online 2’s Attack on Titan collaboration will be starting on March 26, 2014. You can check out the gear in action and more, in our earlier report.

    I don’t even want to know how much AoT symbol art that’ll spawn in the lobbies. I really need to finish FFVI so I can get back into PSO2 without feeling like “…I need to finish FFVI ._.”

  • Crevox

    Here it comes… wait for it…

    Anyways, I’ll be seeing this in game soon! :)

    I want this version more 3DS version

      An unnecessary comment if you ask.

    …………….That looks Awesome X(

    So you can’t fight one? First picture was misleading then.

    And what kinda world do we live in where Hatsune Miku can get localized but PSO2, Yakuza 5 & Restoration and VC3 cannot?
    But Gung Ho can justify bringing over Ragnorok Odyssey Ace (which feels like a PSO/MH clone) but Sega cannot be bothered to bring over theirs..

      Miku is known worldwide, so that’s not a fair comparison. She’s even had concert tours over here.

      I personally do not see PSO2 doing too well over here. NA and F2P = “I’m not going to pay for extra things” whereas Asia as a whole is ready to dish out side cash out the ass.

      • KnifeAndFork

        Miku is known worldwide? 40k sales does not equal well known lol

        And Phantasy Star has been around since the Genesis and the Online since the Dreamcast. That was the first online console game I ever played (on dial up on NetZero).
        And Sega’s lack of proper global marketing to all their franchises and not just Sonic is the problem.
        How can PSO2 not “do well” over here when MH does and Gung Ho makers of Puzzle and Dragons considers Ragnorok worthy of localization?
        You have no proof of it not “doing well” here.
        We got two things here: Phantasy Star (well known already) and the Sega name.
        Who’s heard of Gung Ho and Ragnorok in comparison?

        And the west has plenty of f2p games with microtransactions what are you even talking about now get real…Warframe, DC Universe Online? Puzzle & Dragons? Candy Crush? Tekken Revolution?
        Namco’s even localizing Jojo and Soul Calibur which have microtransactionfest

          With the type of game PSO2 is, many fans of PS were turned off the second it was deemed “F2P.”

          And I never said Miku sales were fantastic, but tickets for her concerts sold out fairly quickly. Whether or not they wanted to play her rhythm game was a gamble, but it’s understanding of why they attempted. I myself knew it wouldn’t blow up as well as Rock Band / Guitar Hero run the rhythm market. Because of Phantasy Star Universe, the fanbase has gone down as many were already disappointed in the change from PSO to PSU.

          Going back was a good move, but too late for NA fans. Any diehards have already hopped on the JP servers with the English patch and have admitted they wouldn’t even get the English version if it came out.

          As usual though, you should know SEGA by now: If it isn’t Sonic, then it obviously has no chance in the West. I’ve given up on asking/begging for localizations from them.

          • KnifeAndFork

            Diehard importers hardly make up ANY majority. Certainly not for the U.S. demographic sales potential.

    • Brandonmkii

      I’m sure it took a lot less work to localize Project Diva then it would take to localize any of those other titles you mentioned. Honestly, I doubt Sega would make any money if they brought PSO2 over without some kind of subscription fee. And you can’t even compare one company to another without knowing it’s financial state and expectations of sales for the games in questions.

    With so many cross over specials, I really doubt this will ever release outside japan. It would be a licensing nightmare or simply lose a lot of the appeal if they decide to make those events japan only.
