Phantasy Star Online 2 Reaches South East Asia In Early 2014… In English


Somehow this slipped under our radar entirely, even though it’s from a couple of months ago: Asiasoft will publish Phantasy Star Online 2 in South East Asia—in English.


The territories Asiasoft will cover include: Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. They’ll be publishing the PC version of the game.


“Asiasoft has an excellent track record in publishing online games in Southeast Asian countries and this partnership is in line with Sega’s aspiration to expand our PC online game portfolio,” said Naoya Tsurumi, president and COO of Sega Corporation.


“Sega and Asiasoft will be working closely together to provide the best PSO2 experience for users in Thailand, Singapore Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines by creating localized contents that will appeal to the market in said countries.”


Phantasy Star Online 2 will reach the aforementioned territories in 2014. Sega announced the game for release in North America and Europe earlier this year, but have since been quiet on the subject of its release.
