Sachiko Live Event
Famed "Last Boss" enka singer, Sachiko Kobayashi, is set to arrive in PSO2 as a goodwill ambassador of Earth. She'll perform "Youkoso ARKS," an original song created by indie artist Beat Mario, in a new live event.
The performance will excite and bewilder players with its ludicrous visuals, such as the Mega Sachiko. In the final stretch of the event, Sachiko even takes to the skies over the audience aboard a Phoenix.
At the request of the audience, Sachiko will perform an encore of her rendition of "Senbonzakura." You won't want to miss the spectacle as ray guns sprout cherry blossoms across the lobby.
If you're attending the ARKS Festival, don't forget to pick up the Youkoso ARKS CD which contains item codes for the music disc, a jukebox, and a panel featuring a cutout of Sachiko Kobayashi.
Godzilla VS PSO2
The King of the Monsters resurges aboard the ARKS Ship! Godzilla, featuring his Heisei series design, will appear in the Shop Area lobby for a limited time, unleashing his signature roar and atomic breath.
The ARKS League
A new Ranking System will automatically separate players into 20 person groups where they must compete for the highest score. This system tasks players with completing various objectives, like defeating a specific enemy.
You can find details on your current league by speaking to Mimi in the Gate Area lobby. She'll also supply you with Star Gems and other rewards based on your placement in the ranking.
New Story Board Events
Enga, serving as liaison of the Earth Guides, pays a visit to Oracle. Suddenly, he and Hitsugi begin to argue. "What is her reason to fight" is a question Hitsugi frets over, but as the story moves forward, someone makes their appearance…
This story update gives you the first chance to play in the new Las Vegas field. Here you can see new Phantoms including the maniacal boss, "Devil's Trailer."
As you progress through the story, you'll see members of the "Earth Guides" appear in other quests around Earth.
SG Scratch Recycling
Those unlucky with the SG Scratch can trade in all those unwanted items for an item they actually desire. For example, you can trade in 40 SG Scratch Items to receive an [Elder] Battle suit.
Collection File Expansion
Premium Set users will now be able to hold up to 5 Collection Sheets. The interface has also been adjusted so that you can conveniently view the sheet's distribution period and cooldown times.
New Chat Commands
The wait is finally over! Now you can switch to any of your fashion presets with the new (/mf) chat command. In addition, you can use the (/face) command to change your character's facial expression.
