I've actually got a article on PSO2 for the Vita in a PlayStation Magazine somewhere. I think it actually said that you can use your character for both Vita and PC, I need to double check but I think it also said multiplayer will go up to 12 characters at a time, instead of 4 like it's predecessors.

Twelve at a time! Wow, that's certainly a big change. I hope they have a really good loot distribution system planned. Thanks for this info, Atlin!

Alright, I dug out my PlayStation Magazine, this is from Issue 059 June 2012.

Quote:Twelve years in the making, Sega's sequel to their classic Dreamcast RPG is Vita's biggest online game. PSO2 supports hundreds of players in its massively multiplayer lobbies, and up to 12 players at a time in the instanced dungeons, where PC and Vita players can level up side by side and even play the same character across both platforms.

And underneath is a male character with with black hair in a dark outfit looking like he's ready to strike someone with his sword.

[EDIT] I forgot to add this if anyone cares.

[EDIT 2] This was in an article for upcoming Vita games

Just wanted to say this so you guys don't get your hopes up and end up disappointed: PSO2 will be a Japan-only MMO.

That doesn't necessarily exclude the possibility of a release outside Japan. It just means a non-Japan release hasn't been announced yet. The source linked in that Kotaku article includes this in the PS Universe server closure announcement:
Quote:We look forward to taking our memories and the lessons learned from this game as we prepare to move into the future. There is more news yet to come for Phantasy Star, and there will be much to be excited about in the coming weeks and months.

That suggests that PSO2 for other countries could still happen. From what I've read, there is a language selection option in the PC version's configuration settings. It apparently only has an option Japanese at the moment, but the presence of the option shows that Sega has already given some thought to translating the game.

I think any optimism for this game appearing outside of Japan should be cautious, given Sega's recent financial troubles. Until they actually come out and say it's going to be released, no one should expect that it will. But, Sega also hasn't actually officially said that the game will be Japan only, as far as I know.

It is in English. The game itself is Sega's first (and on a certain level I hope only) forray into a free game with optinal expenses. PSO2 Will be free to download and play, but free users will carry heavy restrictions:
- No Check Room!
- One character per account.
- Unable to access certain event quests.

For those who opt to pay a monthly fee all of the above restrictions will be removed. There will be further expense options opened up to payed account players, though details on what those features will be are a bit sketchy at the moment.

Thanks for the info, Tweeg ! I didn't have a PS Vita but it's an interesting news for all the people interested by it :)

Well, only took about twenty-four hours for the Vita version of PSO2 to sell out in Japan. Bunches of copies are already turning up on Yahoo Auctions with the in-game bonus code card removed, seems some people only wanted it for those exclusive code-required bonus items.

There's also a white Vita with PSO2 bundled being sold, which I'd not known about prior to game launch.

Sadly, car issues prevented me from pre-ordering a copy of PSO2 for Vita. :(
