During last year's Tokyo Game Show, SEGA announced that they were working on a follow-up to their smash-hit online RPG for the new generation of gamers with Phantasy Star Online 2.
10 months later, and the company is finally ready to reveal a lot more information about the game and its release schedule. Scheduled to go into testing in Japan this August, some of the details revealed include: the return of randomly-generated fields; random events that occur during fights; gamepad support; the ability to fight with multiple parties on the same server; the addition of a subclass system with both the main and sub class each having their own levels; anatomy morphing in character creation (including a boob slider!); and much more.
We have for you today plenty of new screenshots and new videos for you to check out and enjoy. Please let us know what you think! Personally, I played the hell out of PSO on the Dreamcast and maxed out my character's level thanks to some friends who were as addicted to the game as I was.
