Sega has announced that their upcoming Phantasy Star Online 2 MMORPG will be making its way to Android in some form.
This is the first true sequel to their reboot of the Phantasy Star franchise, initially launched in late 2000/early 2001 for the Dreamcast, and later brought to the GameCube and Xbox. Phantasy Star Universe, another followup, made its way to PS2 and PSP, with a DS Phantasy Star 0 game released in 2009.
This will be free-to-play, with real money needed to buy some items in game. This will be a different game from the versions planned for PC and for the Playstation Vita; data will be shared between those versions of the game, but it will be a different experience, possibly even single-player focused. There’s no word on if online play will be available, even between just mobile versions of the game, with a version also planned for iOS.
We’ll definitely have more on this title as the details are revealed.
