Hello! Sakai updated this morning. On the last day Sakai and the development team came out to play in the lobby!

A little more than 50,000 or 73% of players participated in this alpha test. 80% of those players reached up to Level 10. There were approximately 23,000 simultaneous connections. There is a lot more data he has to go through but he thanks you all for participating.

We recommend not typing any comments in English. Anyway, this is yet another hint of a console Phantasy Star game in the pipeline that may use character data from PSO2. However I strongly believe Phantasy Star Victory will be highly related to PSO2 in every shape and form.
