Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II Dated for Xbox

At Tokyo Game Show this year, Sonic Team reminded the world that they are still working on Phantasy Star Online for Microsoft’s Xbox console. It now has an official name, too – Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II. That’s right, it’s the same game as the recently-released (in Japan) Gamecube version.

The game will release on 16 January 2003, and will have all the features of the Gamecube version. In fact, it will come with a few extra features as well – voice communicator and keyboard support will be added. We suspect this is down to Microsoft’s console being rather good at online play.

Some new screenshots were released, courtesy of The Magic Box – you can see some of them below.
