As far as ANIME is worried PSO2 has the maximum anime customization since there have been countless anime related skins released into PSO2 Meseta the sport. The question is whether PSO2NA/EU/? International? Would have access to these anime related skins or not. Sure the game could have specific game content but the biggest"selling" point of PSO2 is its own anime cosmetics if they aren't there then there's gonna become an concern. From"anime" I mean your characters cosplaying famous anime characters not the images.
I'm pleased to get some buddies finally right into it. Some of them just have consoles and have very, very sub-par PCs to play the match with all the English Patch. Only like 1 friend is actually really close for a brand new PC, but he wants to wait on playing PSO2 till it comes west. While I await starting fresh with everyone else and don't mind grinding from scratch, I still think the western release is going be severely hindered by licensing issues in transferring most cosmetics from JP to the west.
The gameplay should be fine, but makeup are honestly a massive area of the game with how many different choices you have, and you'd definitely realize that this yourself if you looked at bumped.org/psublog. I didn't count, but I'm almost certain we are either approaching or beyond 1000 hairstyles (you're bound to get very similar ones using this many), and a stupid quantity of accessories and outfits at this point.
Not having anywhere near as much cosmetics to get and possibly never seeing most of these due to licensing issues is going to suck big time. Reaching end-game in PSO2 is decently quick, and having more than sufficient end-game gear doesn't require that long. Afterwards you're either leveling another class, min-maxing your stats even though this isn't a really challenging game to justify that (just bragging rights), or grinding meseta for makeup, which is very addicting inside itself. That part is extremely important to mepersonally, so I don't know just how long my attention will be kept by the english version.
I am hoping to be proven wrong and I know that it takes some time shifting things over, but if this is a F2P, I only hope they know their position in the western market when already a fantastic chunk of fans knows the JP servers are stuffed to pso2 sales the brim with content, and that they don't do some acute P2W elements.
