This applies to both the Japanese and Global versions, meaning that western players wont have to wait for years compared to the original Phantasy Star Online 2.
In May, a New Genesis character creator will be launched to let players test out the game’s new customisation options. Character data created using this program can be transferred to the full game from June.
Two Founder’s Packs were also announced for the global version, containing a selection of cosmetics and booster items. These will be priced at $41.99 and $43.99, and can be bought from the Microsoft Store, Steam, and Epic Games Store on August 19.
With the first global closed beta for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis taking place next month, it seemed like the game would still be a while off. But now, fans wont have to wait long to try out the game, whether they make it into the beta or not.
