Phantasy Star Online 2 still plans to officially release in early summer 2012! In the official release, a new field called the Frozen Tundra will be added to the game. (4Gamer chose to say the game is releasing "this summer" while Famitsu held on to Sakai's definition of "early summer.") If this isn't the news you were expecting, well just wait a few more hours until that other thing is announced… maybe…
