PSO2: New Genesis will have new crossover content from Melty Blood: Type Lumina. Type-Moon made the announcement on the second day of Fate/Grand Order 7th Anniversary Festival, where it also published new information about its other games.
Type-Moon did not specify what kind of Melty Blood content will appear in Sega’s PSO2: New Genesis. But when crossover content from other franchises appears in the latter MMORPG, it usually consists of avatar parts and accessories that let players replicate characters from the former. The items will be available in the gacha-like Scratch Ticket that usually runs for four weeks after launch.
Melty Blood: Type Lumina will be the second external franchise to bring crossover content into PSO2: New Genesis. Sega previously announced that it will release the first crossover avatar parts modeled after Hololive Production VTubers on August 24, 2022. In its roadmap for late 2022, Sega revealed plans to release more crossover Scratches with an external game title—which fits the description for Melty Blood—in October 2022, and an anime show in November 2022.
The fighting game Melty Blood: Type Lumina is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. While Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is also available on the same platforms, only the PC version is universally available worldwide. The Nintendo Switch cloud version only appears in Japan, while the Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions appear elsewhere worldwide. Sega will launch the global PS4 version of the MMORPG on August 31, 2022.
