Handheld MMORPG to debut in 2013.

Sega has released the first three screenshots of Phantasy Star Online 2 running on PlayStation Vita. As detailed Friday, the game is currently only ten percent complete, and lacks detail compared to the PC version. Sega is aiming to reach the PC version’s highest drawing level.

The game is set to launch in 2013. View the screenshots at the gallery.

    gallery’s on this site have been loading really slow for me for the last few days. Game is looking good tho, but ill still be getting it on PC instead..especially since a Vita is 300+ dollars (with memory card and Tax) that i dont have

    also..from the last article “As development progresses, the game will move closer towards the PC version’s highest drawing level.” thats a lot different htan “PC version’s highest graphics level”. I dont know if those are two unrelated statements or just different phrasings, but the friday quote seemed rather specific. Drawing level is completely different than graphics though

      @Kougeru: Apologies. I’d originally wrote graphics level and changed it to drawing level. Site’s been acting up tonight though. Not sure why it published the earlier draft.

    Oh, the Gamecube memories of PSO Episodes I + II. Really looking forward to playing PSO2 on my Vita – you know, considering my PC sucks.

      @Sal Romano:

      I played the games on the Gamecube as well.

      They compared to the original Dremcast versions admirably.

      I’m hoping that if the PC version is popular and successful, we might see a console port. (Perhaps the PS3?)

      I would like to get into the beta tests for the game at some point.

      (Not sure if the following applies to you, but just in general…)

      I doubt the game will require a beastly PC to play. Perhaps if you want to play the game above 1080p with max settings.

      Most MMORPGS are fairly mild when it comes to the required specs to play the game.

      One could play the recently released Star Wars TOR on a very moderate machine.

      (Perhaps something even cheaper if you play at 720p.)

      Edit: I would also consider picking up the game for the vita. I hope to pick up a Vita in the near future.
