Earlier today in the PSO2 Live Broadcast, SEGA announced the arrival of Episode 3. This episode is expected to launch late August with a new class, new planet, new weapon categories, new enemies, and a complete overhaul to the Arks Lobby!
This update will introduce a new class called “Bouncer.” This class excels at striking and tech in two new weapon categories known as “Jet Boots” and “Dual Blades.”
Dual Blades are striking weapons comprised within the sword art of Nito-Ryo. Utilizing the “Photon Blades” it stabs enemies and absorbs PP.
Jet Boots are weapons that can perform various kicks and have the power to fire off technics as well. During the heat of battle, it can automatically trigger support effects.
This planet inhabited by Titans, consists of two opposing nations: “Black” and “White.” The enemies and atmosphere are reminiscent of Japanese-style folklore. Starting off in the “White Lands” you’ll see new characters like Kotoshiro (CV: Tomokazu Sugita) and Sukunahime (CV: Yui Horie).
Arks Lobby: Casino
In addition to an overhaul to the entire ARKS Lobby, players can enter the Casino and earn “Casino Coins.” Not many details were revealed so far, but we do know that it’s set up like a theme park where you can play the attractions with your friends.
