Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Cruises Into Phantasy Star Online 2

By Sato . December 12, 2014 . 12:31pm


Phantasy Star Online 2 got a major update earlier this summer with “Episode 3,” which introduced a new Bouncer class and some casino games for the lobby. Sega shows off more of Episode 3’s part 2 update, which will arrive later this month.



The video begins with a footage showing a Japanese-style makeover that the Team Room will get. As you can see, it’s full of cherry blossom trees and a special building look that has tatami mat floors and other Japanese-style looks to it.


Next, they give us a look at the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 collaboration, starting with the Space Battleship Yamato, itself. The Yamato will show up inside the Arks Ship, and can even be seen from the My Room area. There will also be extra goods you can get to decorate your room.

The collaboration even features characters from the series, such as Susumu Kodai, Yuki Mori, and Akira “Rei” Yamamoto. They also have the Yamato crew outfit for characters as well, and it wouldn’t be complete without the captain of the Yamato, Juzo Okita, who is also a costume option.

Since the Japanese-style is part of the Episode 3 major update, they’re also bringing back some more costumes for it, too.



Additionally, part 2 of Episode 3 brings in more “Extra Hard” level quests for those looking for more of a challenge. This includes tougher mobs, new drop items, and a 12-man giant boss fight against “Magatsu”.


The Magatsu is so big, it towers over the entire town, and you’ll need to use extra booster jumps to reach its weak spots, and weapons located in the area. It launches devastating laser attacks, which you’ll need to dodge while trying to beat it before it breaks through all of the town’s walls.


The new content from Episode 3’s update part 2 will launch on December 17, 2014 in Japan.

    Temped to complain about this not being a home console, but then there’s the PSV.

    So I guess I’ll just complain about this being JP-only…

    • quasadra

      ah, but it is not JP only…


      • DS23

        Yeah, yeah, SEA and Taiwan servers exist but are eons behind the JP one in content and will never catch up ever.

        • Mr.Chieftain

          Well it’s a whole lot better than nothing eh.

  • Ferrick

    Sange & Yasha! Finally!

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    I’d love it if PSO2 cruised into America and Europe. We’ll probably visit tons of galaxies before that even happens.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    that is it. time to download this game again

  • Roll Caskett

    Guys just give up….it will never come to NA EVER

    • Zazon Zenzy

      As long as Alien games and Total War games are still alive (and the JRPG hate still hot), PSO2 has zero chance to come here. You know how stingy is SEGA US.

      • Justin Graham

        And yet, Sega just released a successful Steam port of Valkyria Chronicles and are working with Sony to release Yakuza 5 in the west.


        • Zazon Zenzy

          There’s hope, I guess.

    • Codi Schumacher

      That kind of attitude sure wont help matters.

    • Kaihaku

      Indeed. I played PSO2 with fan translations for awhile but, really, at some point you have to accept that a company doesn’t want your business and move on… Monster Hunter 4 and Xenoblade Chronicles X will be here soon.

  • MinakoArisato

    I always feel sad when I see news about PSO2.
    Please Sega… just hurry up, please…?

  • Slash the stampede

    that class that use foot wear looks cool.


    I know I wasn’t the only here who saw the giant monster and was like aim for the nape of the neck? XD and then the male character did o.o
