Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis (ファンタシースターオンライン2 ニュージェネシス) is the successor to Phantasy Star Online 2.

Connectivity with Phantasy Star Online 2

Although existing as a separate game, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis allows for the same characters and their associated data to be used between both itself and the original Phantasy Star Online 2 either through the use of the same Xbox Live (for North American version) or SEGA ID (for the Japanese version) used to play either title.

The following data is used across both games:

  • Character Appearance (including emotes and accessories).
  • ARKS Cash (AC) and Star Gems (SG).
  • Weapons, Units and Mags, though these have different behaviour when used in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.

The following data, however, remains exclusive to their respective games:

  • Items of the following category; Consumable items, Skill Rings, Boost Items, Materials and Furnishing.
  • Character Growth including Level, EXP, Class Skills, Photon Arts and Techniques.

History

In 2018 several job listings for an unnamed Phantasy Star game were spotted though no announcements were made regarding what the project could be. [1] Eventually during their 2020 roadmap, SEGA announced that the end of EPISODE 6 would not be followed up with EPISODE 7, instead announcing that a 'major update' would be releasing, with the nature of the update being kept vague.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, would be unveiled to Western audiences via the Xbox Games Showcase 2020 event with a teaser trailer, later going up on the North American PSO2 YouTube channel. A localized Japanese version of the trailer was put up on the Japanese Twitter and YouTube channel. An English and Japanese website would eventually go live.

A day after the initial announcement a second trailer and more details were unveiled including the nature of the release, its connectivity with Phantasy Star Online 2 and the fate of the original game. The announcement also assured that if Phantasy Star Online 2 were added to new platforms that Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis would also be made available on said platforms. In addition, in-game campaigns to celebrate the announcement were released across the Japanese and Western version of Phantasy Star Online 2.

The game's planned to be released worldwide in both Japan and the West some-time in 2021 to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Phantasy Star Online.

Versions

Much like Phantasy Star Online 2, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis, will have two different versions; a Japanese version and a Western version with no cross-compatibility. Like its predecessor, the Japanese version will use a SEGA ID to authenticate and link accounts across multiple platforms while the Western version will be relying on an Xbox Live account for cross-compatibility with Phantasy Star Online 2 and cross-platform support.
