Sentai Filmworks Picks Up Phantasy Star Online 2 for their Winter Anime Lineup

The winter 2016 anime season will be featuring a surprising title. The sequel to Phantasy Star Online is finally making its way to North America. While it is not the video game itself, which SEGA released only to the Japanese market.

In an official statement, Sentai Filmworks declared that they will be releasing the anime on traditional and digital media platform. There is even a possibility for home video release. The anime series will follow the MMORP’s outline. It tells the story of Itsuki Tachibana, a Phantasy Star Online 2 player and his adventures both inside and outside of the game. The series will be directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi. Scripting and composition will be led by Mitsutaka Hirota. Minoho Takasu will be providing character designs. The anime will be produced by TELECOM ANIMATION FILM, who also produced Ramen Fighter Miki, Lupin III – The Italian Adventure and Sengoku Basara: Judge End.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Anime Scheduled for January 2016 Broadcast

The anime’s launch is just around the corner, as it is expected to start airing in Japan as of January. The anime is expected to be launched on digital outlets soon enough after that, with a home video release once the anime’s run is over.

Meanwhile ARK: Survival Evolved Surpasses 1 Million Downloads

ARK: Survival Evolved is shaking the world of PC survival games. In less than a week, the game got over 1 million downloads, and hit 200,000 real days of gamer survival. This title faces gamers against the danger of dinosaurs and other great threats of the Jurassic period. It’s the only large-scale multiplayer survival game currently available on consoles, which is probably why there are more players on Xbox One than on PC.

The game doesn’t launch for all other platforms until June of 2016, so the developers are looking to use this time to get as much feedback as possible. That way, once the game is released for all formats, it will be the best game it can be. Support for split screen playing is already in the works, as well as gamepad customization and UI improvements. The new updates will also feature adjustments to game modes, better balancing and new content that is also being featured in the PC version of the game. Gamers are encouraged to contact the developers on all social media outlets and give them feedback, as those changes could be featured in the official launch in June.
