A special treat for any Phantasy Star Online 2 fans has been released. A benchmark for the title is now available for download and includes the complete character creator. It allows you to customize a new hero for when the full game becomes available.
Despite it being in Japanese, the menus and graphics are easy to work through and offer a lot more options than previous Phantasy Star titles. I had a lot of fun playing with all the tweaks and colors for customizing hair, eyes, faces, noses, mouths, different body parts and armor. Take a look at the thirty screenshots after the break. You can download the benchmark here.
