During a livestream on Nico Nico, Sega announced that a PS4 version of Phantasy Star Online 2 will be released next year in Japan.

On top of the new platform, the publisher will also release a new large expansion, titled Reborn: Episode 4. While there are no details yet on the contents of the expansion, the PS4 version will be playable at Tokyo Game Show 2015 this September.

At the moment there’s still no word about the promised western release of the popular (at least in Asia) MMORPG/online RPG. Sega announced it quite a while ago, and has been silent since.

More information about the PS4 version and the expansion will probably come come at the Phantasy Star Thanksgiving 2016 series of events, that will start at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba on December 23rd, and will be followed by several similar events across Japan.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently available on PC and PS Vita.
