Gravity Rush 2 X Phantasy Star Online 2 Free Costume Released in North America/Europe; PSO2 Still MIA

Looks like the stars aligned, and we're at least getting a small toke of Phantasy Star Online 2 in the west. Better than nothing?

February 7, 2017

Most probably, this is the closest thing to Phantasy Star Online 2 that we’re going to get in the west.

While Sega appears to have completely forgotten its ancient promise to release the online RPG in North America and Europe, Sony Interactive Entertainment actually delivered… something.

That’s a free costume for Kat in Gravity Rush 2, alongside a few photo items which include Rappy, the mascot of Phantasy Star 2.

Here is the full list of items:

  • ‘PSO2 Crazy Kitten’ costume for Kat.
  • ‘PSO2 Rappy’ photo item.
  • ‘PSO2 Red Container’ photo item.
  • ‘PSO2 Green Container’ photo item.
  • ‘PSO2 Blue Container’ photo item.
  • ‘PSO2 Yellow Container’ photo item.

If I were you, I definitely wouldn’t take this as a signal that Phantasy Star Online 2 is finally  coming west, but I guess stranger things have happened… Not many, but they did.

If you want to grab the costume, you can get it on the North American PlayStation Store, or on the European one.

If you want to see what it looks like, you can also check out a trailer.

It certainly feels bittersweet, but it’s cute and free, so what’s not to love?
