Dengeki Playstation gets the scoop on Phantasy Star Portable 2

Shougai PSO updated information that was released by Dengeki Playstation. We're still under the confusion of bullet attributes, but at least this time we have a magazine source confirming elemental photon art bullets are gone!

  • Story Mode
    • Story is advanced through chapters, it will also contain a side story.
    • Like PSP1, ALL your characters will share an illustrative database record:
      monsters defeated, weapons, and clothing.
  • Multi mode
    • Internet Multi Mode is free!
    • Before a party is initiated:
      1) You will choose a room from a list of rooms.
      2) You can write a recruitment message for others to see
      3) Players can enter your room and join your party.
      4) However, they can not join your party if you are in a mission!
  • Ranged Weapon Details
    • Elemental PA bullets are no more!
    • A ranged weapon will drop with an element attached to it.
    • The attack power of the gun is affected by the elemental attribute percentage:
      For example
      Gun ATP of 500 (x) 50% elemental (=) ATP of 750 .
      Gun ATP of 100 (x) 50% elemental (=) ATP of 150.
    • A bullet was added that can increase the percentage of the element.
      (*note: It will not change the element attached to the gun.)
      (side note: may be possible this bullet is of "power" type)
    • Based on the type of gun you have, the charge shot's range and power will change. (see: charge shot animations)
    • "Accuracy" can alter the amount of damage given from the gun. 
  • Combat (Chain System) 
    • When you perform normal attacks, the number of attacks is tallied up.
      The higher the number, the higher the amount of damage your photon arts will do.
    • You can even perform chain combos as a solo player.
  • Combat (Just Guard and Guarding and Urgent Evasion)
    • Stated in a previous post, Just Guard can only be done through shields.
    • You can still guard with two handed weapons, except it will only reduce the damage recieved.
    • Guarding can cancel your attack animation. The time it takes to cancel will differ with Photon Arts.
    • While you are using Urgent Evasion (rolling) you will be invincible for a certain amount of time.
    • Once you complete the animation, you will not be able to move for a certain amount of time.
  • Miscellaneous
    • The amount of classes you can choose from is reduced.
      Sakai says the reason for this is for "player enjoyment."
    • Some data will be stored on the Memory Stick Duo for cache access.
