    I’m really worried there wont be a western release for this game. I would also like to see it announced for consoles, since it was a console franchise!

    I played the Japanese open beta some. It was really fun.

    We have to put our faith in Sega.

    I think bringing PSO 2 to the west makes a lot of sense. It even fits right into the focus on digital properties.

        Thanks for the reply.

        It was really fun.

        It does something all sequels should do, it brings familiarity to the player. It feels like a sequel to the original PSO.

        I only touched the tip of the iceberg with it. So many new features I haven’t tried. I can only hope they localize it.
