Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II (ファンタシースターオンライン エピソード1&2) is a Nintendo GameCube and Xbox game developed by Sonic Team. It is an ehanced port of the Sega Dreamcast game Phantasy Star Online, and contains the first episode from the Dreamcast version of the game with a brand new Episode 2 exclusive to this version of the game and the PC port Phantasy Star Online Episode IV: Blue Burst. This version of the game also included local multiplayer with up to 4 players.

Also released for the GameCube is Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II Plus, which fixes an exploit that was discovered. This exploit allowed the GameCube to run retail games and homebrew software by changing the DNS of the game, connecting it to a local server instead of the official servers. Other fixes included removing several item duplicating exploits and the inclusion of the online only quests to offline gameplay. This version was only released for the GameCube in Japan and North America.
