Phantasy Star Online 2 Vita Version Cross-Play And Other Features Detailed

Recommended Videos

The Phantasy Star Online 2 development team held a Q&A panel at the Tokyo Game Show last week, where they answered questions about the upcoming PlayStation Vita version of the game, slated for release in Spring 2013. The Phantasy Star Fan Blog has translated some of these details that were collected at Famitsu.com and 4Gamer.

 

PC/Vita cross-play:

While PC players and PlayStation Vita players will be able to play together, only certain blocks on a server (called “ships”) will be designated for cross-play. As illustrated in the image above, green blocks are PC + Vita, while everything else is PC-only. However, team chat will be viewable regardless of which block you’re in.

 

Free-to-play and online-only:

Just like the PC version of the game, the PlayStation Vita version will be completely free to download and play, and will be an online-only game. You will be able to download the game from the PlayStation Store when it releases.

 

One account per memory card:

Since PlayStation Network accounts are tied to Vita memory cards, you will only be able to have a single account per memory card. If you want to create multiple characters under the same account, you can pay Arks Cash to avail this service.

 

A beta is in consideration for the PlayStation Vita version of Phantasy Star Online 2, but a timeframe for the same has not been announced yet.
