Amidst launch woes for the PC NA version of Phantasy Star Online 2, the fan-made launcher PSO2 Tweaker has been updated to include both Japanese and North American versions of PSO2.
PSO2 Tweaker has been a popular launcher for English-speaking fans to be able to download and play the Japanese version of Phantasy Star Online 2. It is now a complete replacement for the normal launcher and can be used to update, patch, and launch the NA version with no problems - a feat that PSO2 and Microsoft's partnership has not managed to resolve yet. In addition, the Tweaker claims to add several options to the PSO2 such as automatically fix issues, configure game settings, and update the game more quickly
