Phantasy Star Online 2 PS Vita features a new OP movie, Toro and Kuro as NPC party members


Just because the PlayStation Vita version of Phantasy Star Online 2 will share the same servers as the PC version, doesn’t mean that this is a mere port with no new features or content added to it.

For starters, the PS Vita version of PSO2 will sport a brand new opening movie, completely different from that in the PC version, which is a welcome change for veteran PSO2 players looking to pick up the portable version as well.

Simultaneously, Sega has also shared the latest trailer for the PS Vita version of the game, which reveals that you’ll be able to encounter and recruit PlayStation mascot cats Toro and Kuro as NPC party members.

You’ll be able to make use of Toro and Kuro in this game the same way you did Felynes in Monster Hunter titles. Is this some sort of coincidence, or did someone over at Sega or Sony just have a shrewd sense of humour?

The story is too old to be commented.

My buddies and I as a teen were addicted to this on Gamecube. I really might pick this up.

Catoplepas1979d ago

Well since it's F2P you may as well. I certainly am.

Sandmano1979d ago

Well yeah but for us vita owners were probably going to have to buy a new memory car because its like 5 gigs

Mister4281979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

@Sandmano: isn't the biggest Vita game card size something like 4GB?

kwiksilver991979d ago

its f2p!!!waow!!so i only need to get another memory card to enjoy this?

Septic1979d ago

I never got to play this and haven't got a VITA yet but this has me tempted. How has the game aged?

Mister4281979d ago

Okay, I just read that Vita game cards have a maximum size of 8gb now and could potentially go higher.

Well, for reference the PC version client was 3GB+ when it first came out in July, but there have been a few major updates that added to that.

Vita memory cards go up to 32GB

4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB.

On a side note:

We should be seeing some 64GB and 128GB at E3, as well as price drops (on the handheld, and memory cards) if Sony wants the Vita to take off.

Vita is growing to be an incredible system. Cross play with PS3 and soon to be PC :D

tubers1979d ago

It's gonna happen.. but there are only some servers that are made for the Vita x PC interaction.

There are also some minor caveats as well (w/c can be understandable).

My first online addiction was phantasy star online. Countless hours put into that game. Definitely picking up this gem for my vita

Phantasy star online, later we get soul sacrifice, and hopefully they will announce monster hunter that would be great for us vita's users.
