Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity Scan

Well this "expansion" came as a shock as how PSP2 isn't out yet in America. For me this announcement means I won't be getting any sleep at all thanks to 2ch. So without further ado, we present the first scan [via videogamerx]

[Scan 0] [Scan 1] [Scan 2] [Scan 3] [Scan 4] [Scan 5]

The way we do things here with scans, (especially the very blurry ones) is that we update information periodically taken from Japanese Official sites, Japanese Bloggers, and 2channel.

Updates 8/27:
+Added Rapiko's description of Friend Search
+Changing 絡みます from argue to entangled as it fits more with famitsu website description of Nagisa

    • Game is currently 50% finished.
  • The Dumans
    • Dumans are now the 5th race.
    • Dumans are mutated humans. Their mutation is thought to be related to the SEED attacks 3 years ago. The power of darkness is hidden within their eyes, and are overwhelmingly more  aggressive than the other races. They are noted for their pale skin and eye patch.
    • The female design suggests a flamenco dancer, while the male is that of a bullfighter.
    • Dumans have an ability called Infinity Blast which shoots a huge laser beam.
    • Dumans are proficient with Hunter and force weapons.
    • They seem to be very weak. (Glass Cannons I bet)
  • Infinity Blast
    • Usable by Dumans.
    • A new blast that can only be used for a limited time.
    • If you want to use it longer, you need to attack enemies continuously.
    • (Basically keep on attacking to extend the blast)

    • You can also charge the attack.

    • Story takes place after the end of final mission of Episode 1.

  • Visual Lobby
    • Shougai PSO's speculations came true!
    • A new visual lobby!
    • The number of people who can join a lobby is the same as PSO's
    • (This would be 100 people in a block, 12 people in a lobby…)
    • (Adding that this number may change in the final version)
    • You can chat with others and recruit people to your party.
  • Enemies
    • From PSO Ruins: Chaos Bringer

  • Camera
    • Take Screenshots
    • You can take screenshot by holding the Select button.
  • Reincarnation/Limit Break 
    • The type counter has a new feature called Reincarnation "転生"
    • The feature for reincarnation is enabled at Level 50 
    • When you are reincarnating, you apply "bonus points" to your character.
    • These points could be stats like (HP/PP/ATK/etc)
    • The bonus points you can apply to your reincarnated character is based in proportion to your current level.
    • When you reincarnate you return to level 1 with the bonus stats.
    • You can reincarnate your character a number of times but we are unsure by how much.
    • Reaching level 200 will be much easier to get to.
    • (In Scan #5, there is a counter where you spend points to keep some HP/PP/ATK/etc..)
    • (So essentially you would store these parameters and reincarnate as a level 1)
    • (It seems as if you are limited in which and the amount of parameters you decide to transfer over.)
    • (When you reach to Level 200, you would have over the max stats)
    • (Shougai says Reincarnation concept is somewhat similar to Extend Codes)
    • The maximum level is still Level 200.
  • Communication
    • New feature Text input will be similar to that of a Mobile Phone. (This means nothing to us non Japanese people…)
  • Friend Search
    • When you pass by another player, you can exchange your character and mission code.
    • Friend Search is a third network function among Internet Multiplayer and Online Multiplayer
    • (Data is transferred between two or more PSPs in close proximity with each other.)
    • (This means your friend's character's data is in your game.)
    • (Essentially you and your friend can join missions together. )
    • (Your friend will become an NPC you can add to parties.)
    • Mission codes allow you and your friend to do missions where the rare drop rate has significantly increased.
  • Import PSP2 Save
    • You can transfer your previous character's level and items.
