We’ve seen even stranger collaborations with Phantasy Star Online 2, but I doubt that many people saw this one coming, as Sega announced their latest with the slice of life comedy manga and anime, YuruYuri. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]

The collaboration features the four characters from the Amusement Club in Akari, Kyoko, Yui, and Chinatsu. Akari will even make an appearance at the in-game lobby, but it doesn’t look like she’ll stand out too much due to her lack of presence, but you might hear her trademark “Akkari~n!” sound coming from somewhere.

 

Her odango hairstyle buns will also be there, as part of the “Bun Bazooka” in some way, along with the magical girl series’ heroine, Majokko Mirakurun.

The collaboration will also include all kinds of other costumes as shown in the above image, and will go live sometime during the second half of November.

    i wonder if they’ll ever go back to the turn based style of the genesis era.
    i’m playing it right now and it’s actually pretty good. PS4 at least

  • Fronkhead

    Itsumo MIRAKURU (dun dun dundundun)

    But really, the group look really goofy in the PSO2 style. Cool though.

  • scdk

    What, no Sakurako vs Himawari duo boss with bonus Ohmuro sisters encounter? (fighting against Sakurako, of course)

    But really, YuruYuri is amazing. I liked Azumanga Daioh; I liked K-On. But if Akari and her friends don’t steal your heart, you are inhuman.

    We should all stop giving a shit about PSO2 because… well, PSO2. But YuruYuri might change your life. Akari and Co. won’t let you down like PSO2’s NA release has!

  • Triplicity

    All 3 YuruYuri girls are pretty cute.

  • Zazon Zenzy

    PSO2 is so 5 years ahead, it has a vanishing gesture! Why, SEGA (US)!? Why you don’t give the awesomeness to the west!?

  • Jelly King

    Meanwhile in the west…

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    I only see 3 out of 4 costumes for some reason…I guess one of them lacks presence :)

    • NeptuniasBeard

      I can’t believe they forgot about the main character. Akaza Akane!

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        Maybe they’ll save it for a later DLC complete with head garb and pillow weapon :)

  • Shippoyasha

    Holy crap it really is out of nowhere.

    Season 3 of Yuru Yuri pretty please? I’m not afraid to say it’s definitely a modern slice of life comedy classic.

    • Wtv

      They need more material from the manga, though.
      I think the OVA is being a success on theaters in Japan, so the franchise will keep going at least.

  • AndyMAX

    What is that? people want to play this game on the west?, no, you want more Sonic games.

    • KSib

    • subsamuel01

  • HerosLight
