Sonic will invade PSO2 in a new cooperative event: New Genesis Sep-04-2021

Giant Sega announced that its recently released MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will host a collaboration event featuring a certain blue hedgehog. From September 1st to 29th, online gamers will have the opportunity to PSO2 NGS Meseta obtain emoticons, accessories and stickers based on the popular Sonic the Hedgehog series.

More specifically, emoticons based on Sonic and Tails will be added to the game. By activating these special actions, players will be able to temporarily transform their characters into an iconic duo. In addition, you can also change the ability of running and gliding to imitate the traditional movements of these two anthropomorphic animals.

Finally, in addition to the Sonic campaign, Sega also released a video, highlighting the "Bouncer" category that will land in the game in October. Like the original PSO2, this character category revolves around three different weapon types-rocket boots, double-edged, and pistol swords-which players can use together to create devastating combinations.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is free for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Japan. In the West, the game has been released for Xbox Series, Xbox One and PC (via Microsoft Store, Steam and Epic Games Store).
