Phantasy Star Online 2 will be the first free-to-play title on the PlayStation Vita to feature Trophy support; both Samurai & Dragons and Sony’s Minna to Issho: Friend Network (the only two free-to-play games on the Vita at the moment) did not include Trophies.
This wee bit of PSO2 info was revealed yesterday at Sega’s Samurai & Dragons Fan Meeting 2013 event, where the game’s producer Satoshi Sakai showed off a “complete” extended version of the PSO2 Vita launch trailer shared on the Net several weeks ago.
On top of Trophies support, the extended trailer also mentioned three more features exclusive to the PS Vita version:
1) Players on the PS Vita version will get first dibs on an upcoming main scenario quest that will introduce a new NPC voiced by Eri Kitamura. This is exclusive to the Vita version only for a limited time; PC players will eventually be able to play the same quest, shortly after the Vita version’s launch).
2) A character Portrait mode in which you can use the Vita’s back-facing camera to take augmented reality (AR) pictures.
3) On top of having Toro and Kuro as your party members on quests, there will also be Toro and Kuro-shaped Mags (a Mag is a robotic pal that hovers above your shoulders and occasionally help with combat).
Phantasy Star Online 2 for the PS Vita is slated to be released in Japan February 28. Read more about PSO2 here on SGCafe!
