The same applies to PSO2 Meseta collaborations like the Final Fantasy XIV collaboration with Odin (which exists as far as I know) where I do not understand how much of Square Enix is involved that for Sega to be able to update assets there. If it was purely just Phantasy Star-related things (such as character outfits, cameos from other games, or alternative Sega-related properties) I could imagine that this probably would have been achieved, or would be done. But from the Global version we don't have the existence of Cougar NX therefore I do not exactly know if there are other complications regarding Sega's own properties that may also contribute not to upgrading everything they could within reason.
I can envision that probably out there we will still see somebody wearing those old collaboration items even if they are not awakened to the very same criteria as new cosmetics in a similar way and that there definitely would have been outrage when it had been made obsolete or unusable. Collabs who have had their cosmetics removed still have their assets exist on the game so those will probably still be available for jp players.
Only improvements we will probably see is the new engine enhancing shadows, shadows, colors, particle effects and casting them from the drapes. You may have a look how exactly implementing better shadows and colours can enhance old equipment by checking ReShade screenshots.

I really don't know this sort of mentality. Do you not play with these match because they are fun to playwith? Or would you play with them with the idea that it is just"worth it" if these 100s of hours are carried over like it's some type of investment? I read things online like this all of the time and it is so strange to me. It's a new game that brings new adventures to be appreciated. NG being declared does not somehow negate the fun of now playing PSO2. NG is slated to come out in 2021, which could be over a year from now. That is so much time to relish PSO2.
Ummm we only got the game in NA some people did not play JPN servers this whole time and now we're being told any progress we make from the version we just got is going to be for nothing if you would like to play with the new game. Some people are also spending some money in this type of the game. They should have just never released this present variant in NA and just waited until 2021 for this one. I'd have never even started playing if I understood a new variant of a live service game was coming out. They seriously take one step forward and 2 steps back all of the time and it is frustrating. The entire life span for NA is just starting so that it will not make sense in any way. Unless this match is more like a single player experience, then it might make sense. What is the purpose of cheap Phantasy Star Online 2 Meseta this game? This is key details.
