Phantasy Star Online 2 is still heading west at some point, but the release has been delayed, according to SEGA. The delay in the western release was announced three months back when it was slated for an early 2013 release, so the fact that it is still delayed hopefully means you will still be able to play it at some point. Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode 2 will release in Japan next month, and the game is available on PC and Vita. Thanks, Kotaku.
