Sega Releases New Trailer for Phantasy Star Online 2 Senran Kagura Crossover

Phantasy Star Online 2 Senran

Sega has released a new trailer that details an upcoming content update for the Japanese version of its popular MMORPG, Phantasy Star Online 2. [Thanks! Twinfinite] Some of what is included in the Phantasy Star Online 2 trailer pertains to Senran Kagura video game series. In particular, it features the “Senran Shinobi Dance” AC scratch.

The video showcases avatars wearing a range of clothing, some of which looks very casual by Earth, 2020 standards. It also depicts emotes, combat encounters, and in-game models of things that are, according to a cursory google search, referred to as oppai mousepads. The embedded trailer is in Japanese, so not everybody will be able to read it, but the new content is still well-represented visually.

Phantasy Star Online 2 players know by this point that the game is no stranger to crossovers. Sega recently announced a crossover with Sword Art Online  that will come to the Japanese version of the game in December. Sword Art Online is an Isekai anime about players who play MMORPGs using deeply immersive technology. Its protagonist, Kirito, will be present in the crossover, as will another main character, Asuna.

On July 23, 2020, Sega also announced a new Phantasy Star title called Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. It is expected to come out in 2021 and will contain new graphics and game systems.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is available in the west for Xbox One and PC. In Japan, it is available on PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The content featured in the Senran Kagura trailer, like the battlewear gear, will release on November 18, 2020.
