Phantasy Star Online 2 announced

Coming to PC next year.

Phantasy Star Online 2 has been announced and will be released next year.

SEGA blew the whistle in a video at the Tokyo Game Show 2010 (thanks, VG247).

Actual gameplay details weren't mentioned. SEGA instead used the video as a chance to reminisce.

Phantasy Star Online was originally released for SEGA's darling Dreamcast a decade ago. Eurogamer existed back then, and would-be editor Tom Bramwell heralded PSO as "a masterpiece". Numerous "Episode" additions were released on various formats in subsequent years, although none quite scaled the same heights as the original.

SEGA Europe offered no comment.
