Virtual-On And Shining Force Cross Exlesia Costumes Headed To Phantasy Star Online 2

By Eugene . July 23, 2014 . 4:02pm


Both Virtual On and Shining Force Cross Exlesia are coming to the Japanese Phantasy Star Online 2 in the form of costume. It’s part of the game’s second anniversary.



Both of the former titles are arcade games, and will be adding costumes to the game. It’s hard to tell which is spiffier. To pick up Shining Force Cross Exlesia gear, you’ll need to defeat the Knight Gear, who will drop knight, er, gear. There’s also new 11 star weapons and a Knight Gear familiar from client orders.



Virtual On gear will turn your character into someone who looks exactly like some of the various models from the robotic series such as the Temjin 747A 1P or Fei-Yen 1P.




Phantasy Star Online 2 is available now on PC and PlayStation Vita. The English version is out in Asia on PC.

    Costumes are quite good, especially the Virtual On costumes.

  • Namuro

    Ooh, I sure would love some Virtual-On gears! I also want to have that song played whenever I wear the costume, too! LOL

  • d19xx

    It’s a shame that Sega doesn’t know what to do with Virtua On and Virtua Fighters these days…

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      Or with Yakuza or Phantasy Star Online II or Phantasy Star Nova or…

      • Sega Japan does.
        Which is not the branch we need…

    • Neither are dormant though? I’m positive VF6 will show up soon.

      • Exkaiser

        I don’t know, it’s been over a decade since the last Virtual-On. That’s pretty dormant. The only thing happening with it is the occasional new model kit.

  • TrevHead

    So this is how SEGA’s arcade / console heritage is to be reduced to is it?

    How sad.

  • Weeb

    Man I miss virtual on. Why couldn’t we get the Operation Moongate ps3 port over the terrible sonic fighters game.

    • I don’t understand how Sonic Fighters took away Virtual-On but it is a shame neither of the HD releases got localized.

      • Weeb

        I’m mostly just saying we got a TV dinner while japan got a full course meal. After Sonic Fighters release sega didn’t even bother bringing over the rest of the model 2 HD games.

  • Kornelious

    ……………Don’t even know what to say……. -_-

  • Zazon Zenzy

    SEGA US can’t just continue only clinging to Sonic and Miku! Come on, give US guys the good ol’ PSO2 and PSN!

  • Alex

    This is not a new Virtua On, I am disappoint.

  • Kaihaku

    Tsk… Sega, I’m sorry but by the time you decide you want my money I might be too busy playing the Xenoblade sequel to care about PSO2 anymore.
