PSO2 Mag Concept and Phantasy Star Series Blog Opens

Today is a new dawn for the Phantasy Star Series as Producer Satoshi Sakai will now cover various Phantasy Star titles and goods in his new blog, Phantasy Star Series Official Blog.

Firstly, PSO2 and the 2nd Alpha test are scheduled for next year, which they will also inform you about information regarding these products at the blog.

They were asked many times if Mags exist in the TGS and Alpha test version of the game. They do indeed exist and Sakai believes he'll just show a concept on what they would be like.

A very mechanical impression don't you think?

According to the person in charge, the part covered in blue, that color seems to be different based on the person who equips it.

PSO2 is being worked on at a fast pace by more than 100 people.  The new blog has a comment approval system, but you can of course send in your comments encouraging the staff and even ask questions about the game in general.

Sega has also opened a mixi page too, but at this fan blog, we won't be able to cover any parts that require a mixi membership since it requires a Japanese cellphone email address to sign up.


Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity Blog is now closed and will merge with the Phantasy Star Series Blog instead. Terada posted something interesting, did you ever want to know the top 5 missions?

Three PSO2 Concepts and Phantasy Star Eternal Planets

PSObanwa! Quick post today considering it's a school day. This morning Miho Bonkohara posted three more concepts of Phantasy Star Online 2 characters.

Here's the HUMarl having a dignified/cold look on her face.


Here's the HUCast with his slim design giving it this nimble look.


This one was displayed last week on Twitter.

Our next goal is to aim for 5000 Likes! So what's in store for Phantasy Star Online 2? Well Bonko mentioned a new Phantasy Star Blog will  start sometime this week.

 Phantasy Star Series Official Blog

In her latest tweet, Phantasy Star Series Official Blog will open tomorrow. Also it is Sakai's 40th birthday today, yay!


Phantasy Star Eternal Planets in Beta

Phantasy Star Eternal Planets is a browser game launching within Yahoo's Mobage site. The game's premise is that resources are drying up and the Gurhal solar system is in a crisis. For counter-measures, Subspace navigation has reached the testing phases and now they are searching outer space to find a new planet suitable for migration. You, the player, hired as part of Little Wing, are tasked to search for unknown planets and excavate their resources.


The game is set up like a turn based, table top RPG. Your party will travel to planets and attack enemies on the screen and find items and rares. You can also purchase items in the shop, like weapon skins, armor, weapon units, and clothing


You could say this is Phantasy Star's first social game.

Adding Planets

You can add planets in the game by purchasing an "AddPlanet" or アドプラネット item in the Shop. It costs 15,000 meseta. In fact most of the features in this game require you to buy items with meseta to use them. If you want to change looks you need an item to buy which requires meseta. If you want to add new partners you'll need to buy an item for that too.

(Personally if you ask me, this story sounds awfully similar to PSO2's ARCs finding unknown planets for adventure. It almost seems like this game is leading into another game in the future. Perhaps a new handheld game?)
