Phantasy Star Online 2 coming to PS4

In Japan. And the west?

Sega will launch Phantasy Star Online 2 on the PlayStation 4 in Japan - but there's no word on a western release.

The free-to-download online role-playing game is due out on PS4 in Japan at some point in 2016, 4Gamer (via Siliconera) reports.

Phantasy Star Online 2 launched on PC in 2012, then on PlayStation Vita in 2013. While Sega has yet to localise it for the west, the South East Asia version of the game does include English language support. But an IP block makes it tricky for westerners to get stuck in - and and the South East Asia version lags behind the Japanese version in terms of updates.

Sega once had a plan to release the game on these shores, but the last we heard of it was in September 2012 during PAX.
