I lost track of how many collaborations articles related to SEGA of Japan’s games we’ve posted here already, but it appears these events have been rather successful for SEGA as they’ve just announced another collaboration event for Phantasy Star Online 2. After Gravity Rush 2 earlier on, it’s now time for NieR: Automata to get a collaboration with SEGA’s online RPG.

Chain Chronicle V and Valkyria Chronicles Collaboration Event Announced for Japan
The PlayStation Vita version of Chain Chronicle, titled Chain Chronicle V, has received a collaboration event with the Valkyria Chronicles franchise. The event is scheduled to run from December 1 to December 14. The mobile version of the game also received this crossover earlier this year, featuring the same character art. You can view all the character cards that can be unlocked during the event below. While it features the major characters from Valkyria Chronicles and Valkyria Chronicles 3, Juliana is the only character from Valkyria Chronicles 2. The official webpage for the event can be found here.
Phantasy Star Online 2 X Gravity Daze 2 Collaboration Trailer
A short trailer for the Phantasy Star Online 2 and Gravity Daze 2 collaboration has recently been shown during a Gravity Daze 2 promotional video). Starting from November 11, both Kat and Raven costumes, hairstyles and accessories will be available in Phantasy Star Online 2, along with lobby actions that show off Kat’s signature Gravity Slide move and Raven’s flight ability. It also includes an in-game Gravity Daze 2 poster decoration. You can view the new content in the trailer below. Unfortunately, Phantasy Star Online 2 remains unavailable in the West despite the fact that a localized version was officially announced over four years ago, which still hasn’t been officially cancelled. That said, an English fan translation of the Japanese version is available.
Persona 5 Gets Collaborations With Phantasy Star Online 2, Dragon’s Dogma Online and Lord of Vermilion Re:3
Atlus has announced Persona 5 collaborations with three different games: SEGA’s Phantasy Star Online 2, Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma Online, and Square-Enix’s Lord of Vermilion Re:3. We added the translated details from the news post of the official Japanese Persona 5 website below.
World of Tanks Blitz Collaboration With Valkyria Chronicles
Wargaming has announced a new collaboration project for their mobile game World of Tanks Blitz, featuring none other than SEGA’s Valkyria Chronicles. We included the trailer below. While it doesn’t reveal much about the project, Wargaming says that more details will be revealed at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show. The trailer does features some comments from Takeshi Ozawa, game director for Valkyria Chronicles, who hopes that this collaboration will get tank fans to learn more about the Valkyria Chronicles franchise.
7th Dragon III Code: VFD Collaboration Coming to PSO2 in November
It’s been an eventful weekend for the Phantasy Star series and Phantasy Star Online 2 specifically. However, let’s also take note of the fact that 7th Dragon III Code: VFD will be featured in Phantasy Star Online 2 in a collaboration set for November (specific date TBA in the future,) following 7th Dragon III’s October release in Japan. It’s a modest but noticeable promotional push from Sega for what might be the last 7th Dragon game.
Players will have access to costume pieces and accessories for female versions of the Rune Knight and Fortuner classes, alongside costume items for both genders of the Samurai class. I can’t guess as to why only female versions will be available for the Rune Knight and the Fortuner. It’s strange considering the Samurai received costume Scratches for both genders.
Also worth noting is that the collaboration content will be available for the PC version and PSO2es, the smartphone version.
