Even if you can’t make our Sonic Colors event in New York next week, we’ve got something on the west coast coming up right after!
Some of you may remember that last year, right around this time, we held SEGA’s first ever Community Event here inside SEGA of America HQ in San Francisco. It was all about Phantasy Star Zero then, and this year we’re making the event even bigger – and featuring Valkyria Chronicles II, Phantasy Star Portable II, and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 as our big games of the night!
What: A special, free event open to the SEGA Community! Bring your own PSP and your copies of PSP2 and Valkyria Chronicles 2!
When: Friday, November 12th, from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Where: SEGA of America (directions below)
Who: You! And a friend. (Or three) The event is free and open to the public, but we only have room for around 50! You can reserve your spot here on the blog via the comments, so make sure to do so asap!
What to bring: Your PSP and a copy of Phantasy Star Portable 2 / Valkyria Chronicles 2! If you don’t own a PSP or the games, just let us know and we’ll get one for you to use!
Dinner: Provided by SEGA!
5:00 PM – 5:30 PM - Check in, introduction, and welcome
5:30 PM – 6:30 PM – Play with SEGA + Dinner (Multiplayer sessions with VCII and PSPII)

In more detail, some of the highlights of the event are listed below:
Free play + SEGA!
Join your friends – and maybe even some SEGA Staff – in co-op games of Valkyria Chronicles II and Phantasy Star Portable II. Have fun meeting other fans of the series, and get some practice runs in for the competitions later in the evening!
Valkyria Chronicles II – 4-person Team Tournament
Phantasy Star Portable II Team Battle Tournament
Sonic 4: Episode I – Community Feedback Session
In the meantime, if Sonic 4 isn’t really your thing, free play of both Valkyria and Phantasy Star will also be taking place in the other rooms.
Swag Raffle, Awards Ceremony, and Closing
Everyone who attends the event will be going home with some special swag – and on top of that, a few lucky winners will also be getting extra prizes that we’ve got hidden away here at SEGA! You could go home with rare merchandise from last year or even vintage merch from the Dreamcast era and before!
Whoever travels the furthest distance to arrive will also score a special prize. Oh, and know your SEGA trivia, too – because we might give out some extra goods to anyone who can correctly answer some quickfire questions!
Once all is said and done, we’ll have our closing, bid everyone a good night, and let you all loose on San Francisco for the weekend.
