@DELTAWING00 said in PSO2es NA release?:
@Ragnawind well, it's not impossible now.
Not impossible, but I would imagine unlikely because IDOLA's main feature was to grant the player rewards and Star Gems for the base game while being a sidestory as well. In the case of PSO2es it was largely a companion app that was its own game (and its own story) that directly tied to your character's progress so if the way IDOLA was handled on our side of any indication much of PSO2es would lose its functionality (EXP Shares, Mag Feeding, Personal Shop management, Star Gem/FUN Point Collection, and especially obtaining cosmetics/equipment).
We got Sigma and Occuld weapons added in as drops and I do not know if the Occuld weapons are staying or not as drops (they were introduced with the Thanksgiving event) but with these having come here I would not be surprised if PSO2es is something we may never see show up. We still have the Weaponoids in the Unique Badges Shop but I am curious if we will ever see representatives from the game show up like in the Japansese version as hosts for events or as frequent "Emergency Code: Unite" allies.
IDOLA at least is a side-story that is detached enough from the base game (being set far in the future) to stand on its own but I cannot imagine PSO2es doing well at all if it has nothing to do with your player character or linking to the main game as I particularly have it on my end to have access to PSO2es Storage (which is a free 100-slot storage used to share items between these games).
