Japanese manufacturer Takara Tomy released something rather cool for fans of the Zoids franchise and Phantasy Star Online 2.
Among other products, Takara Tomy is known for the prehistoric mecha models line Zoids, which also has its own anime and video games, and the new release is a version of hero mech Wild Liger themed after the uniform of Phantasy Star Online 2 hero Ash.
The model is quite affordable, as most of the Zoids line, priced at 3,000 yen plus tax. It also comes with a code that will unlock two themed helmets in the Japanese version of the game.
At the moment we don’t know if this kind of collaboration will ever make it to the western version of the game.
You can see what the model and the helmets look like below.
That being said, Phil Spencer himself went on record mentioning that the game will likely make it to other platforms, even if no further information was shared on that topic.
In the meanwhile, Sega is preparing to launch the sixth expansion on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Japan, where the game is still going strong, enough to get a physical release.
