PSO2 JP: The Casino Area

Casino Area

The new Casino Area has a theme park-like atmosphere. It will first have two different kinds of games, “Mesetan Shooter” and “Rappy Slot.” Every day you’ll receive a “Coin Pass” which you can use to redeem a random amount of Casino Coins. Each game has fluctuating advantages/disadvantages based on its difficulty.

 

Rappy Slots

Rappy Slot is a single player slot machine game. Similar to Just Attacks, the game encourages you to press buttons at the right moments. When the singing rappies are together, a [RaPSEBURST] will occur.

 

Meseta Shooter

You can play Mesetan Shooter, which is a multiplayer game that supports up to 4 players. You can earn coins by shooting at the targets. Various characters will appear during the mini-game. Achieving a PSE Burst increases the chances that a rare Mesetan will appear, giving you the prospect of earning even more coins! However, if you shoot Mr. Umblla, you’ll lose coins.

 

Casino Prizes

You can exchange coins for various items at the Prize Counter like Weapon Camos and Rare Enemy Triggers. Rare Enemy Triggers lets you encounter a rare enemy at Area 1 in a quest.

In addition, in the Casino, there are balloons you can use to fly through the air. You could think of this Casino like an oasis for players who are tired of fighting enemies.

 

2nd anniversary event 2

 Shining Force Ex

In late July, part 1 of the “Phantasy Star Festa: Volume 2” update will be kicking off with a new limited quest. It’s an all star quest that takes place in the Ruins. It features level 70 bosses with increased chances that some of them will appear at the same time.

Here you can expect to see “Shining Force Cross Exlesia” boss [Knight Gear], with its rare counterpart [Knight Mage Knight Gear]. You might even see three [Knight Gears] appearing at the same time.

There are some changes coming to AC Scratch in the upcoming weeks. AC Scratch Gold will now feature sets for costume, accessory, hairstyle, weapon camo, and cast parts. This should be arriving around part 3 of the “Phantasy Star Festa: Volume 1” update.

In addition, during the time of the Hatsune Miku collaboration, they will add a female voice in the “Hakaka” dialect.

Extra Things

  • They will announce details of the balance adjustments in the Sapporo conference.
  • Jet boots were nominated to appear in EP1. They were pushed back to EP2, but disappeared, and reappeared for EP3! Originally they were not going to be “tech” weapons, but Suganuma proposed that idea.
  • The EP3 soundtrack is under consideration, but Kobayashi is pretty tied up with EP3 at the moment.
  • It may not appear exactly when EP3 launches, but they’re looking into improving Parallel Areas with level 70 enemies.

      Question Corner

      Q: When was Jet Boots decided on?
      A: From EP1. At that point it was a striking weapon. Suganuma’s suggestion is what is realized in EP3.

      Q: Will you make a Soundtrack Vol. 3?
      A: We will think about it, but Kobayashi-san is very busy. Eventually. We want to add the music from the defense quest.

      Q: Will there be a deluxe package for EP3?
      A: Of course it is under consideration for. It won’t be released alongside the implementation of EP3.

      Q: Why was Monica implemented?
      A: “If you failed, then please apologize”, and so we came up with her. Kimura was in charge of her development.

      Q: What happened to SH Parallel Areas (Lvl. 65)?
      A: We forgot to fix this issue. (The shocking truth). After EP3 is implemented, it will be changed to Lvl. 70.

      Q: Are you able to not wear tights over underpants?
      A: We are not able to do so because of technical restraints. We will look into this if there is a need to do so.

      Other things

      The “Please Allow FUN Scratches to be done 10 at once” team is victorious.
      -“Then let’s see how to implement this!”

      All class changes will be announced at the Sapporo Festa (7/26, broadcasted?).

      After EP3 is implemented, server adjustments will be considered. We would like to implement additional facilities.

      Leg units will be adjusted for Jet Boots (position might be adjusted).
