Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst official website
Blue Burst is basically an upgraded version of the GameCube & Xbox Phantasy Star Online: Episode I & II. You can go here for a previous article detailing what Blue Burst contains. You can also take a look at the following info, which comes from the official website:
# New Quests!
Thirty three quests have been created from the offline portion of the PSO story. Visit the Governor-General and receive up to 15 quests, or get to the Laboratory to accept 18 quests that await you there.
# Customize 12 characters.
A new character named Momoka is introduced through one of the Governor-General's quests. Also, new morphing technology allows you to customize your character's face, hairstyle, clothing, and body size.
# Play from any PC.
Your character data is held on a server allowing you to play anytime from any PC that has Internet access and PSO Blue Burst installed.
# Team Features.
Join a team and chat with other members at any time via "Team Chat". The "Team Point Ranking System" allows you to compete and it converts undesired rare items into team points.
# 3D Battle Action.
Outstanding sense of realism where results of battles are determined by player's ability and the parameters of the player's character. Customize your command palette for simple, straightforward operations.
I would rather have Episode IV, are they bringing that to the US as well?
