A new DLC pack for Gravity Rush 2 is now available that features content from Phantasy Star Online 2, a game that remains unavailable in the West.

The recently revealed PSO2 Collaboration Pack is out now for free on the PlayStation Store in North America and Europe. It consists of a number of PSO2-themed items and a costume for Kat:

Free DLC is always welcome, though Phantasy Star Online fans are likely to be frustrated with the news. PSO2 has still not been released outside of Asian markets some four-and-a-half years after its original launch. Sega had previously said it was coming to western markets, only for delays to turn into silence and confusion about its status. A PS4 release in Japan last year led to no new developments on the localization front.

Its continued absence is somewhat befuddling in part because the game has proven to be a success in Japan. Sega's financial reports routinely call it out as a bright spot in its business, and that was again the case in one released this week.
