Red Oni Characters Return

Red Oni-bou Oudo

Masaki APSY's character design, Red Oni-Hime Shiki, will return to the lobby for a limited time. This time, however, she will be joined by Red Oni-bou Oudo! Clear their client orders before they depart on October 14th to receive their partner cards.


New Field: Kuron

Embark on a journey through the land of Kuron. This brand new field is home to a royal palace, nestled in the rocky mountains of Harukotan. Many new Darkers and Kuronites await, like Oro-Ogar and Bicuda Rabitta! The free-field quest will run in a slightly different way than others, now creating a teleporter to the boss area once a certain number of points have been earned.


Guar Zigmorde

Players must face Guar Zigmorde, a new boss resembling a "Nephila Clavata" spider. Apart from its status effects and wide range attacks is the ability to sentence players with a curse of death! Act quickly, and discover the means of halting this impending doom. Your life is on the line!


Codotta Edetta_proc

Also encountered is the Codotta Edetta, a Toy Darker boss comprised of several parts. Destroy its parts and watch as its outer shell comes tumbling down. With its weak inner form revealed, players are granted a perfect chance to strike!



New ★12 and ★13 Weapons

Brand new ★12 and ★13 weapons await players as drops from the new Kuron field! Unlucky players need not fear, as they can be acquired by trading in Chandra Stones at the Pyroxene Exchange Shop. These stones can be gained by either clearing the quest, or through client orders.

  1. For what it's worth, we're calling the area "Kuron" in the patch, since we went with "Kuronite" for the race and not "Kuronian".

    The suggestion of calling the area "Kuroatia" was, sadly, rejected.

    1. While I understand the logic behind it not being 'Kuronia' with the whole race being 'Kuronite' thing, but…Kuron feels like an empty name, it really does feel like there should be something else there.

      I at least think that the Shiro/Kuro thing should be the same on both sides. I mean, we've seen the area title cards for both of them now, and at least the names should be consistent. We have 'Territory Of White' and 'Territory Of Black', shouldn't the patch names really follow the same structure? If Kuron is going to be called what it is, it seems like Shironia should really be ret-patch-conned to be Shiron…or that Kuron should just be Kuronia…isn't Kuronia what we've all been calling it since forever anyway? Everyone I've talked to uses 'Kuronia'

    2. We took some liberties with it to keep things interesting. My original suggestions were "Whitelands" and "Blacklands", but we deemed those to be too boring.

      You'll get used to Kuron, Arkaz. If you call it Kuronia, people will still know what you mean.

      Meanwhile, I'll personally keep calling it Kuroatia.

  2. My first thought upon seeing the Big Hat Kuronites (or "Kuronia Enemy 3" if you're going to be pedantic about the screenies =3=) was "WH 40k, in *my* PSOs?"

    They bear a rather strong resemblance to Necron infantry (with some Spikes of Villainy loaned from Chaos) in profile after all. To wit, one particularly striking example:

  3. What is the name of that costume? the one shown with the 12 and 13 stars weapons? looks like the hood from organization XIII

    1. Im not even a fan of KH and I would LOVE to have all those Organization xiii outfits in PSO 😛

  4. ….グレン would be "guren" with one r. there's no ッ to double up the consonant sound.
    I suspect if it was written in kanji it'd be 紅蓮鉄扇. crimson lotus iron fan…

    katana PAs and their "flowers and…" naming theme… how silly it all looks in english.

  5. …speaking of APSY's casts, the blue oni design was shown at wonfes. she's also named [shiki], but with a different title. didn't see a clear enough picture with the placard tho, so I can't tell exactly what the title is.

    the big question is when that design will show up ingame.

    1. 藍鬼姫シキ Indigo Onihime Shiki
      藍鬼坊オウド Indigo Onibou Oudo

      While the red ones have two horns on the side of their head, the indigo ones only have one on the middle.
