Today Sega released a brand new AC Scratch collection for the English version of its MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2.
The collection is titled “Shining Heroes” and it includes an extensive amount of crossover content with the Shining series, focusing mostly on Shining Resonance.
It launches today (July 22) at 12:00 am PDT and ends on August 18.
If you’re unfamiliar with AC Scratch, that’s basically the game’s loot box-like mechanic that you can get through tickets purchased with Arks Cash.
You can check out a trailer below and read the official blog post for a full list of the items.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is currently available in the west for Xbox One and PC for Windows 10. More PC platforms have been promised with a recent trailer.
That being said, Xbox division head 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 launched the sixth expansion on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in Japan, where the game is still going strong, enough to get a physical release. You can also watch another recent trailer showing a new class and more content coming to the Japanese version. It’s likely that the same stuff will show up in the western version as well, at some point.
