Phantasy Star Online 2 Alpha Screens Look Rather Awesome

on August 24, 2011 8:30 PM

The Phantasy Star Online 2 alpha testing is currently underway in Japan. This PC-only (for now) sequel to Phantasy Star Online is pretty highly anticipated by fans on both sides of the Pacific. Will we see a release here? Most likely, but one hasn’t been announced. Still, that doesn’t stop alpha shots from making their way out of Japan.

In the shots after the jump you’ll see a mixture of things from the game, including party battles, character customization, running around town and shopping. I’m a sucker for character customization, and the Phantasy Star games have always delivered in that regard. Check ’em out, why don’t you?
