The event, which was held at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan, also revealed the upcoming content update called “Reborn: Episode 4”, which will also be available on PlayStation Vita and PC versions of the game. Phantasy Star Online 2 is set to launch for PlayStation 4 in Japan in 2016. A playable demo of the game will be available at this year’s Tokyo Game Show as well.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is a video game in the Phantasy Star series published by Sega. It was released for Microsoft Windows on July 4, 2012 and for PlayStation Vita on February 28, 2013. The game is currently only available commercially in Japan and South-East Asia, but an English languaged patch has already been released. Phantasy Star Online 2 is an action-oriented MMORPG, and features a diverse selection of weapon types and playstyles for the player to choose from. A form of energy, known in the game as photons, plays an important role in the game’s battle system. During battle, the player can combine his normal attacks with Photon Arts (PA) – special attacks using photon converted into energy – to perform a variety of attack combos.
