Start your petitions for no IP lock on PSO2... NOW!

Japan's Nintendo Direct featured several announcements for titles that do not have North American dates.

The most prominent title now coming to Switch is Phantasy Star Online 2: Clloud, the direct sequel to the former GameCube MMORPG. Infamously not offered outside of Japan, PSO2:C will be a free-to-start title for the Switch in Japan next year.

The style boutiques will open again in November as Girls Mode 4 / New Style Boutique 3 have been announced. Japan will see release of the latest game in North America's Style Savvy series in early November, while Europe will get New Style Boutique 3 later in the month.

The 3DS and Switch also received some smaller eShop love during the show, as the third game in the Dillon's Rolling Western series was announced for Japan. Subtitled "The Dead Heat Breakers", it will roll on in 2018. Switch versions of popular independent titles Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and Crypt of the Necrodancer were also shown in Japan.

Third Dillon game? I didnt even know there was a second.

I've desperately wanted to play PSO2 for so long, and Swotch would be my absolute ideal platform to do that on. Thanks, Sega, for putting that idea in my head before you continue to never make that possible.

It was called Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger, it came out in April 2013 (about 14 months after the first). I heard it was pretty good.
