Phantasy Star Online 2 will be heading to the Nintendo Switch eventually — at least for North America.

The news was revealed during an episode of GiantBomb @ Nite with Xbox head Phil Spencer (timestamp at 40:40), in which he shares a Switch and PlayStation 4 version are in development.

The game was announced for a North American release during Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference, but only for Xbox One and PC.

Phantasy Star Online 2 was originally released back in 2012 as a Japan-only PC title, eventually coming to other platforms in Japan in later years, like the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, as well as the Nintendo Switch in 2018.

Phantasy Star Online 2 will launch in the West for PC and Xbox One in Spring 2020, with no date for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions yet known.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the game would be released for Switch in Spring 2020, but has since been corrected.
