Autumn’s staple Emergency Quest returns for another round of Darker and Kuronite suppression. This year’s iteration changes the quest structure and offers new item drops such as the ★14 Knuckles “Powerful Blow” along with the “Black Rappy Suit Mini.” Joining the fray are Weaponoid characters from PSO2es who might give out special rewards if you complete their Emergency Trials.
