Announced via a Tweet and press release this morning, the team behind Phantasy Star Online 2 mentioned that the release will hit Windows 10 on May 27th, a week from now. The online action MMO has been a game many in the West have wanted for quite some time, so it finally hitting PCs in the West is no small deal.
Via the Press Release:
The North American version of Phantasy Star Online 2 includes fully localized text and character voices in English, spanning three years of content. In addition to the immersive original PSO2 story, the NA version also features the most-up-to-date balancing and quality-of-life improvements from the Japanese service. Players can choose from four races and nine classes while tackling various missions. They can also take a break from questing by playing one of the many Casino mini-games, chilling in the Alliance Quarters, competing in the new ARKS League or attending all-new live stage events. And for the first time they will be able to do all of this with friends on both PC and Xbox One thanks to cross-platform play.
