Phantasy Star Online 2: Official English Launch IP Blocks Anyone Outside of Southeast Asia

For those of us living in the West who were fans of the original Phantasy Star Online games, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. As you might know, Sega launched an action-packed anticipated sequel to the popular Dreamcast original back in July of 2012 in Japan. As of now, the launch date for North American and European players is still to be announced with an official website in perpetual teaser mode.

However, publishers PlayPark recently announced an official English client that will be available soon, but only to those who live in Southeast Asia.

On their official Facebook page, PlayPark simply states:

IP block are implemented due to licensing agreement with the game developers

Hopefully, Sega will have more information regarding English language launches in other regions soon.
