A “Black Lagoon Style” scratch ticket will feature avatar items and weapon camos that let players replicate Black Lagoon characters like Revy and Roberta. The anime’s opening song “Red fraction” will also be available in-game via a Music Disc.

Sega’s announcement included a piece of original artwork where Black Lagoon‘s Revy is posing with Ogi, the default Slayer CAST character for New Genesis. The upcoming crossover will also come with a Build Part that lets players place a poster of this artwork in their Creative Space.

Black Lagoon will fill the final 2023 collaboration slot for PSO2: New Genesis. When Sega published a roadmap for the second half of 2023, it included teasers for monthly crossovers featuring an Isekai anime, a new anime broadcast in 2023, a sci-fi anime, a sci-fi toy line, and an action anime. These titles were eventually revealed to be Uncle from Another World, Oshi no Ko, Spriggan, Frame Arms, and Black Lagoon.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is available worldwide on PC and PlayStation 4. The free-to-play online game is also playable on Nintendo Switch via a cloud version in Japan and on Xbox One elsewhere globally. The Black Lagoon crossover content will appear in December 2023.
