I am hopeful, but... well, I just don't know what kind of animal it'll be. I played Phantasy Star Universe through the beginning, but I really couldn't get into it at all.

Doesn't look like it, but I'm gonna buy it because I support anything Kubooka designs practically on principle!

Just popping in to say that this game is fantastic! Graphically it's certainly a bit Saturn-ish (in a very well crafted way), but it would seem that PS0 has been put together by people who really knew what worked best in PSO and PSU, and what didn't. Things like feeding mags and grinding equipment are kept simple. Yet there are a lot of different weapons to find and play with, and new moves to go with them.

It's odd how the artwork and anime scenes in PS0 make it feel a bit old-school, even though they are additions to the online Phantasy Star franchise!

My only complaints are the loss of lobbies, and the missing ability to chat to strangers. But it is free to play online, and communicating in-game via the Pictochat-like drawing system is great!

North American and European versions are coming, but not until the end of the year. There's a lot of text in this, but familiarity with PSO is enough to get by.

If anyone else is playing, I'll post my Friend Code.

I'll probably pick it up, I'm a huge sucker for handheld RPGs (just got SO2 PSP on launch XD squee!). But only when it comes out in North America...
