Sachiko Kobayashi Performs In Newest PSO2 Update

~ August 10th, 2016 ~


Sachiko Live Event

Famed "Last Boss" enka singer, Sachiko Kobayashi, is set to arrive in PSO2 as a goodwill ambassador of Earth. She'll perform "Youkoso ARKS," an original song created by indie artist Beat Mario, in a new live event.

The performance will excite and bewilder players with its ludicrous visuals, such as the Mega Sachiko. In the final stretch of the event, Sachiko even takes to the skies over the audience aboard a Phoenix.

At the request of the audience, Sachiko will perform an encore of her rendition of "Senbonzakura." You won't want to miss the spectacle as ray guns sprout cherry blossoms across the lobby.

If you're attending the ARKS Festival, don't forget to pick up the Youkoso ARKS CD which contains item codes for the music disc, a jukebox, and a panel featuring a cutout of Sachiko Kobayashi.

  1. Seems like a somewhat late point to be adding new swimwear if you ask me…

    Well, that stuff's doubtless going to be as grotesquely overpriced as most all layerwear tickets so I think I'll be sticking to the one-piece I bought for cheap last year anyway. 😐

    1. August (Mid to be exact) is where people in Japan spend their times on a vacation (and is also an ideal time for young people to take trips to the beach). That said, I don't think it's too late to be releasing swimwear for the occasion. In fact, the timing is perfect lol.

    2. Probably a pre-celebration on their part. The real meat lies within earning money (In SEGA's case), so releasing AC content that correlates to current holidays and social/cultural trends is a huge plus for them.

    3. Seems a bit counterintuitive is all. It's kind of like releasing your new swimsuit collection halfway into the beach season is all – *virtual* season perhaps, but not like the clothes in question were any more real…

    4. isnt this also their vacation time from school? if so, that would make a whole lot more sense.

    5. Correct. Their 1st term starts in April and ends somewhere Mid~Late July, which then, becomes the start of their summer break (Although August is an ideal time for high-schoolers to goof off since July is still technically rainy season). They return to schools for the 2nd term in early September.

  2. Did they really need to add MORE bikini outfits?

    PSO2 : The Bi-Weekly Bikini release

    Not to mention how they use that lazy excuse for a character as a model for them.

    1. Half of them are just rereleases as Basewear instead of regular costumes, and it is justified since Beach Wars was going on, but yes, I'd love them to stop the bikinis (or anything similar) for once.

      But i guess that brings in the dough.

    2. It would be highly inadequate to not add seasonal content that matches current theme or event that people outside of the western bubble actually pay attention to.

    3. It's not a matter of east and west. It's a matter of pandering to the lowest common denominator and someone like me pointing it out. Summer time doesn't automatically equal bikinis. I mean, if you're one that gobbles up the booty shorts and the bi-weekly bikini updates, go for it.

    4. Well, no, for most people summer rather *does* equal swimming equals swimwear of one kind or another…
      As well as dressing lightly for some very practical reasons.

      Molehills to mountains much?

    5. sticking my comment in as well. FOr the matyter of this newwer bikini update, it seems they are reviving sexy bikinis, somethign that has been off the market since last year, and adding some new, non bikini items, but yea, feel free to focus directly on the tits and ass. you been on this game for 3 years, and only now notice this/. come on.

    6. Just because something goes on for a while doesn't make it acceptable, nor does the time in which someone points it out matter either. For a sci-fi game to focus on seasons is a bit counter-intuitive if you ask me. But hey, I'm not the one gobbling up the content so I have no right to an opinion. Because in the summer time you expect a new bikini every other week to dress your waifu up in. I get it. Have a nice life.

    7. stronk in this one the pointless butthurt is.

      Also did you start playing like yesterday or something? Like about every MMO ever this game has had seasonally themed events and items since approximately the year Stick & Stone and the Sausage Wars.

    8. If people want to think about it, the matter of bikini costume on summer is not really something like pandering to "lowest common denominator". It's called seasonal stuff. If we got yukatas on many occasions and costume collabs that didn't have anything to do with PSO2's brand of sci-fi, then bikini is not really a strange choice.

      Besides, this is business, after all. That monokini and sexy-bikini-in-basewear-form would be a perfect choice (both in context-wise and financial-wise) for AC scratch on summer.

      And whether you like it or not, bikini is a type of swimwear.

    9. You're complementing yourself by a huge goddamn margin, if you put everyone else as "lowest common denominator".
      Native players manage to get attention and make use of entire spectrum of all possible themes, while western cause hysterical drama because not everything is bent their way – despite that they will never pay enough for it, despite that they will not care that their demand defies logic, despite that they will never consider anyone but themselves or try to understand them.
      Demanding removal, telling how it "should be", spitting on the rest, this is the core of western playerbase. It is THE matter of east and west, its ultimate manifestation.

    10. When did I put everyone else as the "lowest common denominator"? Are you really going to argue that 90% of this player base aren't lolicons that doesn't use waifu characters and isn't eating up this content? They make bikinis because they sell AC, that's the end of it. Just by putting ones opinion out there makes them a drama freak, okay Knuckles. You all decided to flock in response, then pin me as the drama freak because you don't agree with me. No one had to say anything in sresponse. I never demanded removal. A bit less would be nice, but I didn't demand that in my initial post. Burn me at the stake for having an opinion.

    11. Damn, well put ^^ I see alot of this, the west orders game devs around, the east just goes with the flow, and appreciates things, lol. especially FREE GAMES lol.

    12. @nameless
      Well, probably because you're complaining about the wrong thing. The actual bikini release is in the next scratch and the one before is just a revival/recolor. Any long time player already know this tho because it's already happened a lot of times. I also checked to be sure but there's no other bikini revival/recolor before 'Shiny Summer' scratch since the start of ep4. So not only you're wrong, you don't even bothered to check it so it's understandable that someone is triggered.

      Well, i might missed it tho coz i'm sleepy as hell.

    13. There is having an opinion.
      And there is trying to victimize yourself while labeling people that do not actively fuming about summer theme as worthless plebeian sheeple eating up etc etc etc

      In last episode of this drivel "people with refined taste" demanded removal and full stop of costumes for short characters (pedophilic crap for child molesters obviously, I mean if you think otherwise, you're the one).
      In episode before the last, people wanted to stop casts whose feet do not contact ground with its entire surface.
      So lets protest halloween theme as pandering to satanic worshippers which are 90% of the current playerbase.
      I mean, come on.

      Reaction itself doesn't concern me , knowing that your kind will never be able to affect the game in any meaningful way.
      But I have to tell you Its beyond opinion dude, you have ISSUES.

    14. I didn't even know this whole argument started under my comment, but just to respond, that's exactly what I meant, It's summer, summer involves beach clothing, so it's normal to have it around, regardless of my personal tastes.

      Don't know what the east/west thing was supoosed to mean, or the whole argument about it that happened, but whatever

    15. Holy crap the people on bumped are drama queens…I guess it's expected when so many people can see the comments, so they get lots of attention they don't deserve.

      And of course they would want to make sure to shove their opinions on others, as well as respond to a comment like this just assuming it was aimed at them for being lolicons or something.

      The irony is they damn themselves by exposing it on nothing like "It's silly that this has happened".

    1. @nameless pilot , i see we have another butthurt complainer here , can't get enough of those, huh?
      the GAME might be SCI FI< but we are IN THE REAL WORLD< you know? Where there are seasons? Ad people celebrate those seasons?
      Are you that daft?
      Wait, nah it's science fiction, so everyone should e an alien or a robot, and celebrate fictional holidays and seasons that don't exist, because who needs content to enjoy an online game? We gotta make it realistic.
      Do yourself a favor, get the stick out of your ass, and just enjoy the game, or stop whining about it like the self-entitled brat you are,and move on.

    2. @WannaBeTemmie

      Why are you trying to snuff out people's opinions? Do you attack anyone who doesn't agree with you? If you consider back to back bikini as content then your standards are awfully low. Talk about having a stick-up one's ass, you're the one carrying on about the matter. PSO2 doesn't take place in the "REAL WORLD". It's not like they add like 16 different kinds of winter coats during the winter. Please get your head out of your own backside.

    3. There are no Bikinis in Space, all summerwear scratches are a farce, this is a Sci-Fi game, let's make sure Sega knows how incorrect this is.

    4. I just to want to point out that the bikini from Shiny Summer Days scratch are recolor from past stuff, and it does exist even on previous years scratch (see Mikagura School Sweet, Irregulars Summer, and Heroes Summer Beach scratch for reference). It's also not exclusive to swimwear stuff. Most old costumes are 'recycled' in this way (put them on new scratches catalogs as 'revival').

      So, it's not like a 2 bikini scratched in a row. It's just SEGA recycling their old bikini costumes (and it's slowly piling up). Honestly, I suspect SEGA put the Halter Shorts and Tropical Swimsuit in this scratch to avoid clutter in the 'summer' scratch list (and subsequently players raging at SEGA for the low scratch percentage of the new stuff). Especially after the Granblue Fantasy scandal some time ago.

      To be honest, I won't be surprised if next year some other people are raging because there would be 3 bikini scratches in a row; when in fact it's just SEGA reviving old bikini costumes.

    5. Only butt hurt I see here are people instantly assuming the worst without even a reason to do so. :U Instead of making sure to have an open minded community that's intelligent.

      but that's why exists. It's always right…

      Also why are you using Temmie's icon of herself? That's…odd… I never got that. I can understand the Temmie's of UT but that's…kind of creepy to be honest.

    6. its creepy to use a cartoon drawing for a profile picture? mmk, makes perfect sense.
      I see ppl usnig anime characters all the time, i suppose thats creepy as well?
      do yourself a favor, when you have a bullshit opinion to share : keep it to yourself.
      At least im not trying to be edgelord liek yourself, and being practically ANON at the same time.
      IM not hiding myself here, my name is very easy to spot, ppl will knwo it's me, because im not hiding behind a vague name without a custom profile picture…like you are doing. This way, you cna just change your name, and start more random shit with other people, with no downsides, because your just another neckbeard hiding behind a computer monitor, just to start shit.
      have a nice day.
      ps- ill change my icon since its so creepy, i see yours is VERY original and maybe ill copy that.

      PPS- dont bother replying.

  3. You know we are lacking end game content when people take their time to complain about bikinis during summer time.

    1. ……..Actually, it IS summer in Japan.

      Japan's summer usually happened from middle of May (or June) to the end of August. Also
