Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis Launches June 9

Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis will let players take existing characters on a new adventure.

Sega has announced that the new online game Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis will fully launch on June 9. Those that participated in the beta test will have their client updated and receive added rewards. There will be maintenance later that week, which may cause the game to be temporally unplayable. New Genesis is both an update to the original Phantasy Star Online 2 and a separate game that will run concurrently with its predecessor. Players can import their existing character between games, even though the two are meant to be set thousands of years apart. To help smooth this transition, Sega has stated that the original Phantasy Star Online 2 will receive upgraded graphics to match New Genesis.

It is still unclear if this division will further segment the population. Even with shared characters, players themselves will have to decide when game to spend time in day to day. It is possible that Sega is inadvertently slowly killing one version via this choice. When Phantasy Star Online 2 officially launched in English, it was filled with bugs and other errors that turned off many fans. Some of this was on Microsoft’s end, but players also were quick to blame Sega’s lack of foresight.
