PSO2 JP: Happy Wedding Scratch Ending 8/1/2012

On Wednesday, August 1st, 2012, the Happy Wedding Scratch will be removed from the game. Costumes/Parts, hairstyles, accessories, voices, and lobby actions contained in this scratch will no longer be available.

Because of this, the item used in trading for the Color Change Pass will be temporarily unobtainable. However, some time around a future AC Scratch update, they will increase the variety of items that can be used in exchange for the Color Change Pass.

*They did not specify which AC Scratch update it would return in.
