Sega released the free-to-play Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2) role-playing game for Windows PC in Japan in 2012, followed by a PlayStation Vita release in 2013, and an Android and iOS release in April and May 2014, respectively.
The anime adaptation, Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation, will premiere on January 7. The series will have a completely original story, and the story will follow PSO2 players "who may be near you" on Earth in the near future.
The game inspired the "Phantasy Star Online 2-ON STAGE-" stage play in December 2014.
