This morning on PSO2 Station; Sakai, Ichitaro Ai, Atsuko Enomoto, and Haruko Momoi played through the Ruins area which will be arriving later this year.
This area features some new darkers, like Cyclonehda サイクロネーダ who wields a morning star and its counterpart, Cuclonahda キュクロナーダ who wields a club. At the end of the quest, they fought against the boss Zeshreida.
Zeshreida could be described as a Gamera, resembling an alligator/turtle with a star on its back. One of its common attacks is to stomp the player stunning them. It will even fall on top of the player and shoot red darker energy balls from holes in its back.
During the special attack (where even the music changes) it spins around on its belly hurling energy balls everywhere while jetting across the screen. This boss is weak to lightning and light and Dagacha (Fish Darkers) spawn around it.
Other tidbits from this show include:
- Subclass (CO) unlocks from level 20.
- The update is around 250Mbs.
- PSVita Ver. is free to download too.
- To clear Mr. Umblla's trial, he must hit someone.
- Zeshreida's boss music can be heard in the Call of Mortality trailer.
- Offline PSO2 Event: Arks Party (10/20/2012)
This event features teams of 4 who compete in the ruins area against the boss Zeshreida. There will be 32 players and 100 spectators. It will be held at Space Create Takadanobaba BIG BOX in Tokyo.
Don't forget, tonight's maintenance adds the subclass update!
