Sega is continuing to provide new details and assets about its upcoming online RPG Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.
We get to see new screenshots from the official community Twitter account Rappy.Commu with additional explanations in English from the western Phantasy Star Online account (sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
You can check them out below, showing the “Region Mag” and a couple of new “DOLL” enemies.
“From PSO2: New Genesis, meet the ‘Region Mag’!~
Activate it to give a boost to everyone on the ship!
We’ve heard that it may eventually ask for super rare items? What a picky eater! It’s pretty cute though~”
“We have more info on DOLLS, the enemies from PSO2: New Genesis. Here are “Pedas Sword” & “Pedas Gun”, they fight with weapons. Similar to the DOLLS we’ve already seen, it seems they turn red. Could this be a common trait amongst DOLLS?”
“This is “Goloron”!
We’ve heard this enemy is resistant to attacks from the front, so try attacking it from behind!
Apparently, there’s a way to defeat it from the front…
We’ll keep researching!”
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will come for the same platforms as Phantasy Star Online 2 which in the west is (for now) Xbox and PC, while in Japan it will release for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
If you want to see more, you can check out the latest gameplay from just before Christmas, and the previously-released footage and see how much the game has improved since then.
We also get to see a glimpse at the new engine that will provide a fresh coat of paint for the original Phantasy Star Online 2, bringing it almost up to par with New Genesis.
