(A Certain Magical) Virtual-On Brings Changes to PSO2's Battle Arena

(A Certain Magical) Virtual-On Collaboration

Collab Event: February 21st ~ March 7th

Sega's wildly popular arcade game, Virtual-On, collaborates once again with Phantasy Star Online 2 to add weapon camos, costumes, and room items! This time, the focus is on PSO2's PvP mode, with Temjin 707G and Raiden 502 H "Judge Igniters" appearing in the Battle Lobby.


On the flip side, Temjin 747 A and other Virtuaroids will appear as statues around the ARKS Lobby. Both Battle and Arks Lobbies will use music from the Virtual-On series. For example, Temjin's stage theme can be heard as background music in the Arks Lobby.


Virtual-On Battle Arena Collaboration

Aside from the lobby, the Battle Arena itself will also undergo some changes during the collaboration. Combatants will have access to Swords, Assault Rifles, and Jet Boots. For this event, Battle Swords will utilize either [Rising Edge], or a modified version of the [Ride Slasher] PA. For the latter, you can hold down the PA button to attack while consuming PP. You can also unleash a follow-up attack to your surroundings when you release the PA button. In addition, Battle Swords at level 3 can also appear in the form of Temjin's weapon [Sleipnir].


Raiden's signature weapon, the [Zig Launcher], will appear as the design for the level 3 Battle Rifle. Players will also have access to a modified version of the [End Attract] PA that allows movement during the charging phase.


Battle Arena Scratch Rewards

A Battle Arena Scratch will appear after the completion of every match with a lineup of Virtual-On goodies. Expect to see some color variations from [A Certain Magical Virtual-On] appear among the rewards.


Dark Blast Colors

The Dark Blast menu has added new functionality to customize the main and sub colors of your Dark Blast. Coordinate among your friends to create your own mighty morphing Dark Super Sentai team.

In order to access this quest, you'll need to pick up its Bonus Key by clearing Featured Quests with an A-Rank or higher.


Special Ability Protection

PSO2 is introducing a new support item that helps protect your weapon or unit from harm. This support item can be used only on equipment with 5 affix slots or less. When the protection is used, the items involved in the process will return to their previous state if the affix happens to fail.

  1. They're bringing back Jet Boots? Coupled with macros, it makes arena dreadfully easy (or infuriating, if you're on the receiving end). I'm afraid we'll all emerge from this forced arena campaign with less hair than Sakai. Added continence indeed.

    1. Point is, that's completely inefficient and does very little damage compared to what the class can do, the arena here is basically telling you 'Hold button because that's all you can do for your damage'. I'm more amazed they still push content for this game mode.

    1. The dislikes are that many since EP5 launched and people realized how much Hero broke the game.

      At least that class made Sega realize how poorly designed some of the aspects of older classes are.
