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.

    Unless I’m missing something, this is misleading reporting. While it can be inferred based on what was said that it will be available in North America on the Switch, that hasn’t implicitly been stated, and they certainly did not say it would be available in spring 2020. It’s been assumed that it will be a timed exclusive. I suggest this story be corrected.
