Official English-Language Release of Phantasy Star Online 2 Coming to North America in Spring 2020 for Xbox One/PC

Monday, June 10th, 2019

I don’t think many of us were expecting any news of a Western release for Phantasy Star Online 2 in 2019, but 7 years after its original Japanese launch, an English language version of the game for North America is finally coming in Spring 2020 for Xbox One and PC.

Announced during the Xbox E3 Conference, the free-to-play MMORPG has been a Japan exclusive since launch with the only signs of an English language version coming with the launch of the South East Asian version. This will be the first officially sanctioned Western release of the game and the reveal trailer promised all content that is currently available in the Japanese version will make its way to this North American port.

This news is unfortunately bittersweet for European fans as SEGA Europe have stated that they have nothing to confirm regarding a release for that region at this time. Porting PSO2 to a European market is likely a more intensive task as it isn’t as simple as supporting the game in English. European games normally support English, French, German and Italian language options as standard so this is likely causing a delay for a European launch.

Fingers crossed European Phantasy Star fans don’t have to wait long for confirmation of the game in their region, but this is still the most promising PSO2 news for quite some time.

Phantasy Star Online 2 is free-to-play MMORPG that supports cooperative gameplay for up to 12 players. There is no level-cap, but the game supports micro-transactions.

Team Sonic Racing Delayed, Now Releasing May 21st 2019

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

After much speculation given SEGA’s peculiar lack of marketing for the game, it’s now been officially confirmed that Team Sonic Racing won’t be releasing “this winter” after all – it’s now due for a much, much later release on May 21st, 2019.

SEGA has said that the delay is to ensure “the best experience possible”. Given response to game so far has been somewhat tepid, this is perhaps a welcome move – but it’s also a surprisingly hefty delay over the originally expected Winter 2018 release. Perhaps this is Haruki Satomi’s ‘quality-first’ initiative kicking into high gear?

Team Sonic Racing will launch in May on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Playstation 4.

Cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 Remakes Revealed by Digital Foundry

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Digital Foundry have managed to get their hands on some work-in-progress footage of a cancelled Shenmue 1 & 2 remake project. Unlike d3t’s Shenmue I & II, this would have been a complete remake of the game with more detailed assets, textures and lighting. Check out the video below to see a comparison of this footage versus Shenmue I & II:

There’s a full article that breaks down what is being shown in the footage and what it does differently to the eventual release of Shenmue I & II. There’s also some speculation as to why these remakes were cancelled in favour of the upscaled HD ports we eventually got. Digital Foundry suggests the remakes were cancelled due to budget restraints and delays.
