The release will happen on August 31, 2022, finally opening the game to a new audience after the original western release only happened for Xbox and PC.

Strangely, the Japanese version has always been available for PS4 and Nintendo Switch (via cloud) in Japan. At the moment, there is no word about possible launches of the Switch cloud service in the west.

Players on PS4 will immediately have access to all the content released on Xbox and PC, including the new and snowy Kvaris region and the Waker class that has been revealed this week.

If you’re wondering, full cross-play will be enabled with Xbox and PC, so players on all platforms will be able to play together.

Of course, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will be free-to-play on PS4 as it is on other platform, with the optional abundant dosage of available optional microtransactions.

On top of that, this also means that the original Phantasy Star Online 2 will be made available in English on PS4 as well, bringing the whole experience to Sony’s console.

To celebrate the new release, an art exhibition is being hosted at Anime Expo 2022 in Los Angeles, including concept art, figurines, and more artwork.

The publisher also has a themed photo booth that promises to transport Anime Expo attendees into the world of PSO2:NGS.

Attendees will also receive a code to redeem in-game items like ARKS Expo shirts, a mag form, an emote, and a sticker. 

Below you can check out the key artwork for the PS4 release.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
