New TV anime series premieres this year

Sega opened a website on Monday for Phantasy Star Online 2: Episode Oracle, the new television anime adaptation of its Phantasy Star Online 2 game, and revealed the anime's first promotional video and visual.

The anime will recompile the story of "Episodes 1-3" of the original game, and will also include an original story. The series will premiere this year.

The game previously inspired a television anime titled Phantasy Star Online 2 The Animation. The anime features a completely original story. The 12-episode series premiered in January 2016, and Sentai Filmworks and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in March 2017.

More recently, the game's official Puso Ni Comi: Phantasy Star Online 2 Comic web manga inspired a series of web anime shorts that began streaming weekly on the Phantasy Star channels on YouTube and Niconico on January 8.

Sega released the free-to-play Phantasy Star Online 2 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 game debuted on PlayStation 4 in April 2016. The most recent episode in the game, "Episode 5," launched in July 2017. The game's "Episode 6" update will launch on April 24.

A cloud version of the game for Nintendo Switch titled Phantasy Star Online 2 Cloud launched in April 2018, and then launched for PC on December 19.
