Phantasy Star Online 2: The Towering Magatsu

On December 17th, players will face the gigantic towering boss known as "Magatsu." This boss is strong, powerful enough to destroy massive protective walls with its body.


The goal for this quest is simple, players must prevent Magatsu from advancing and destroying all the walls. They'll have various tools at their disposal like turrets, photon particle cannons, and the [calamity-binding arrows] used to hinder its movement.


Sukunahime Protection

The quest will introduce "Quick Emergency Trials," where players are tasked with objectives like "defeating specific enemies" or "evading Magatsu's attacks." As they continue to fight and clear the objectives, they'll earn points for Sukuna-hime's Divine Blessing! This blessing grants players with higher jumping ability, faster movement speed, and a wider Moon Atomizer range.


Players will also have the chance to acquire new 12★ weapons, some of which came from previous Phantasy Star games.


New Crafting Items

New crafting room items like Craft Ex Maker 4, Craft Tech Maker 4, and Craft Timed Maker 4 increases the chance for a Great Success a tiny bit more. These room items can be yours at the Crafting Shop.


Extra Hard Quests: Part 3

Two more quests join the ranks for Extra Hard difficulty. Desert Guerrillas and Volcanic Guerrillas will feature level 80 enemies with the chance to drop new 11★ and 12★ items.

  1. The Yamato costumes barely look any different from eachother save for the captain outfit; though the room items and the Yamato being in the lobby are also very cool. Despite all this, I feel that because the costumes are so similar that they could've perhaps chosen a different sci-fi or space-themed anime with a bit more variety than this one. I know that Yamato is a classic, but I feel something like Harlock perhaps might've been a better choice.

    1. Would totally buy a lot of AC for a Psycho-pass or DMMd collab, but I HIGHLY doubt they would(I know DMMd is absolutely out of the question for a male-catering game like PSO2).
      Also they're not really space-themed sci-fi.

      Or if they made the original Phantasy Star costumes(like, the very first game).

    2. Yamato2199 is likely chosen as a cross-advertising campaign due to the release of a new movie, because this way pulling it off will be cheaper and more relevant/pleasing. You don't just browse through the stash of anime shows and get something to copy.

    1. but they'd need to dial up the maximums on the bust sliders for that to work. (not that I'd reject such a thing…)

    1. Yeah, I noticed that shortly after posting; I was merely assuming that picture was also of a new 12* weapon, as it was with the others (but after checking the name, I see it's just supposed to show off that Desert Guerrillas has XH lol)
