We have been waiting so long for PSO 2 to come out in the West

I haven't followed the game too closely, but judging from PSO2 Meseta this trailer you'll get to use your giant mechs against World War II battleships -- since you can. It's heartening to watch Sega pushing PSO two in the US these days, though it all seems to be contributing up to the launching of the recently announced Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, a modern name heading into the Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC. Sega states that name won't replace the original PSO 2, instead it'll be complimentary since you'll be able to use your current personality in both games.

Microsoft was quite cooperative in releasing PSO two, and also to enlarge on this, they were interested in PSO 2 and in providing us with Agile, their programming program. It is not really a technical reason -- since in terms of moving the sport over to Xbox, it wasn't any easier -- but they supported putting the game on Xbox. It is not that the Xbox is especially difficult, but there were several features that needed to be adjusted particularly for Xbox. It was originally developed on PC, so it's relatively simple to bring over to any other system.

We have been waiting so long for PSO 2 to come out in the West -- eight decades now -- that it is interesting that you decided to launch it first on Xbox One. It is interesting, since the Xbox One is essentially in the previous year of its life as Microsoft transitions to the Xbox Series X. Did you launch on Xbox One because you understood the Xbox collection X would be backward-compatible, and that individuals would be able to carry their advancement over to the next console? Or did Microsoft strategy you because they're hungrier for content than Sony is to get the PlayStation 4?

Now, to complete our show, we turn our attention to Phantasy Star Online 2, which recently arrived in the West two years following the release of the Dreamcast original -- and eight long years following PSO 2's release in Japan. Western audiences frequently wondered whether the game could come to North America whatsoever, yet Phantasy Star Online 2 is now available in buy Phantasy Star Online 2 Meseta the West on Xbox One and Windows PC. This update is being published in lieu of a new episode to bring the 8-year-old movie engine current, worldwide. Details on New Genesis are light at the moment, but Sega says it will reveal more from the Tokyo Game Show timeframe later this year.
