Phantasy Star Online 2 Episode 2 launches in Japan

Hot on the heels of the TV spot comes news that PSO2E2 is now live for Japanese gamers, or westerners who've set up their accounts. The PC/Vita game is ready to rock with loads of new features including improved character design, new environments and monsters to battle, as shown in a new 7-minute video. Not sure if this gets a physical release or is purely a download update for the Vita.

The game has some 2.5 million players, and still no western release dates have been confirmed.
