PSU 10th Anniversary Update
~ August 31st, 2016 ~
Phantasy Star Universe’s very own Ethan Waber and Karen Erra will be appearing in PSO2 for a limited time! While they search for a method of returning to the Gurhal system, the two will offer players client orders and a chance to receive their partner cards.
They can also pop up together during Emergency Trials, accompanied by “Save This World,” the opening theme of Phantasy Star Universe.
The ★13 weapons they wield can not only be obtained from their client orders, but also as rewards for clearing their Emergency Trial. You can also change the photon color of each weapon at the Item Lab.
Gurhal Collection 1 (AC Scratch)
Phantasy Star Universe’s 10th anniversary celebration begins with the introduction of the Gurhal Collection series. The first scratch will showcase outfits and hairstyles worn by characters Ethan, Karen, and Mirei. Another of PSU’s Project CUTE costumes will also be included. In addition, by playing the scratch twenty-five times, players will earn the Air Board lobby action.
A new Koltolva Juice item appearing in the scratch will boost the rare drop rate for 30 minutes. In addition, special abilities reflecting the names of each of PSU’s weapon makers will be added: GRM, Yohmei, and TENORA WORKS.

New Story Board Events
The battle against Mother Cluster continues as Hitsugi cooperates with her newfound Earth Guide allies. Plagued by hesitance, Phaleg’s questioning of her “resolve” still echoes in her mind. Time won’t wait for Hitsugi to find the answer however, so she heads off to the battlefield, her heart wavering.
Two new Phantoms join the fray with the arrival of Laplace’s Demon and Maxwell’s Demon. An adorable yet fearsome creature, Laplace’s Demon utilizes powerful short range attacks. He is also capable of generating a spherical barrier to protect himself.
Maxwell’s Demon, on the other hand, is a flying bat-like eyeball that can self destruct with its HP depleted. Both of these creatures will make their debut in the Story Quest. Advancing far enough into the Story Board will cause them to show up in Emergency Trials during Free Field quests.
Huey, the Commander of Combat Operations, will make his first appearance of Episode 4 in a new story event. Check out his new look and join him during Emergency Trials to do battle with mighty foes.
New Quest Trigger
Now you can face Profound Darkness on your own schedule with the new [Perennial Apocalypse Trigger]. Join up with a few friends and clear the quest for the chance to receive a Ray weapon.
In addition, the Trigger Quest will utilize the Level 3 equivalent of the A.R.K.S. support system from start to finish.
