NieR: Automata X Phantasy Star Online 2 Crossover Will Make You Wish Sega Didn’t Forget its Promise

Sega goes all out with its crossover between Phantasy Star Online 2 and NieR: Automata.

Today Sega released images of a large batch of items that are being launched on the Japanese servers of Phantasy Star Online 2, including those crossing over with NieR: Automata.

We get costumes and hairstyles for NieR: Automata protagonists YoRHa 2B, 9S and A2, some of the most iconic among the game’s weapons, a Machine life form head, pods 042 and 153, YoRHa emblem stickers and and a poster for the housing feature.

On top of that, there are also a bunch of items not related to NieR: Automata, including some wacky ones like fundoshi underwear and “shampoo” outfits, which are exactly what they say on the tin.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently available in Japan for PS4, PC and PS Vita, but Sega appears to have completely forgot its ancient promise to bring the game west, with no apparent way to make them spill the beans on whether the project is still alive or canceled.

NieR: Automata is currently available for PS4, and will come for PC on March 17th, via Steam. You can read our review here.

Unfortunately, most western gamers probabably won’t be able to get their hands on the items in the gallery below, due to the lack of a western localization, but we’ll possibly be able to find comfort in the costume coming for Gravity Rush 2. While we don’t know when it’ll be released, or whether it’ll come west, we even got a Phantasy Star Online 2¬†costume, so it’s rather likely.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
