Phantasy Star Portable 2: The Executors, Gemaga Overview and Tips

Coming 4/14/2010, the 風紀委員エクスキューター (Disciplinary Comittee Executor) outfits and weapons will be arriving to a Japanese Playstation Store far from you! Unfortunately the outfits cost money, which is a shame considering they look pretty cool.  Finally the long awaited End of Eternity/Resonance of Fate Anchor King collab item will appear next as DLC.

Gemaga Rebellion Overview

This week the ゲーマガ 天守閣の乱, Rebellion of the Keep, was released, and it provided a breath of fresh air to the game. The mission is accessed in Story Mode ストーリーモード. In the mission counter select Extra mission, エクストラミッション, then Clad 6, グラッド6. If you see a green DL, then you have it!

The mission is side scrolling just like Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle. As such you will fight humanoid enemies most of the time.  These enemies can be very brutal as they resort to Guerrilla warfare tactics of hit and run. The mission also includes rare spawns which is noted by 、Little Wing Rosk、リトルウィング・ロスク and Dilnazen pattern. The other rare spawn is noted by a Guardians Rosk, ガーディアンズ・ロスク and Ardite Pattern.

No matter what level you are between Level 50-180, the enemies will be 10 levels above you. It's best to stock up on all healing items, scape doll, a tech mag or wand with resta. The Hunter class is best for this mission, but I completed it with a Beast Braver as well.


At the beginning of the mission you will meet  Kuno and Bask. Kuno will tell you that you can't use Nanoblast, Mirage Blast, and SUVs. Bask will tell you to exchange 2 Gemaga Tickets to receive a Gemaga Goody bag. In order to obtain the Gemaga Ticket, you must complete the mission.

In your first incompleted playthrough of the mission, there will be one portal that leads to a boss fight with the Vol Brothers. One of them may or may not have a boost. During the second playthrough, the second portal will open up and leads to a boss fight with 3 Shizurus. An additional Shizuru will be boosted to King status.

At the end of the boss battle you will fight Bruce's Cargo Ship! It's very easy if you use two handed weapons such as the knuckle, claws, or double sabers. It's not based on how strong the attack is, but rather the amount of times each portion gets hit.


Gemaga Tips?

I suggest having your class as Hunter, you'll need the HP and hit power. I suggest getting Ice Resist (refer to Maximum Attack Little Wing Cup) and equipping it to the line shields. Use ground line shields in the first block, then dark line shields in the second block. Both should have Ice resist.

Personally I used claws with ice status effects since it helped in freezing enemies. Being a Braver class also nets you EX trap usage. If you are a braver, add the Burst Bomber バーストボマー Ability in the Battle shop. This ability adds extra damage to traps. You can effectively place EX traps in front of doors which can kill two spawns of enemies instantly.  Traps are also useful against the bosses. If you manage to save most of them, you can spam Fire EX traps during the Vol Bros and Shizuru Boss fights to kill them quickly.

Shizuru's boss fight is especially tough since you have three attacking you with great amounts of damage. I suggest Just Guarding or Blocking with a shield most of the time. Shizuru isn't meant to be attacked in a brute force manner, unless you're good and can manage it.  Try to attack Shizuru after he attacks, because there is a short period of time where you will see red lightning sparks on him and he doesn't move. During this time he is completely vulnerable to chaining.

Phantasy Star Portable 2: Now we can all play Little Wing Grand Prix

What Will Sakai Do Next Part 4

This time Sakai was quoted again about PSO's 10th Anniversary. It's another minor quote but it opens up for some more speculation. "Following the previous "Phantasy star Portable", since many are enjoying it at this time. For the next work, I want to expand (or widen) more of the user base. There's still some way to go, though it's still in the "thinking" stages. Please wait while your playing Phantasy Star Portable 2 (Laughs)."

Sakai also says they will continue to release new quests and download items for PSP2 in the future. I guess from this it could mean the next game would appeal to more casual as well as hardcore gamers? Or maybe it will be easier to play and gets more strategic later on?

Little Wing Grand Prix

Finally, Sakai will be releasing the Little Wing Grand Prix mission for all players. In case you didn't know, Little Wing Grand Prix is a tournament where two players would compete for the fastest time. The tournament is now officially over, however Sakai had to release this mission early and had to push back the "Gamega" Collaboration Mission further down. Everyone will be able to participate in not one but TWO missions from the event. These missions are very short but the point is to try and time attack them anyway.



Seguntal doesn't understand the meaning of crowd surfing…

FIRST STAGE: The first stage will take place in the abandoned ruins, here you will fight Go Vahra and Astarks, at the end you will fight Fazuntal and Seguntal as a boss. Your personal goal should be to complete this mission within 4 minutes, the fastest time recorded was 2 minutes and 13 seconds.



SECOND STAGE: In this stage you will run through PSO Caves, and will defeat Poison Lilly and Pal Sharks. PSO Dragon will be waiting for you at the end. Your personal goal should be to complete this mission within 4 minutes, the fastest time recorded was 2 minutes and 57 seconds.

These are CHALLENGE Missions, however you can choose the combat type at the start of the mission. All players will be fixed at Level 50. With a time attack challenge in mind, you might want to reach the boss at the 1 minute mark. However the time it takes to defeat the boss will just be based on SKILL and LUCK. These challenge missions are available 3/10/10



THIRD STAGE: In this stage you will run through Forgotten Fortress, and will fight the final boss. Your personal goal should be to complete this mission within 5 minutes, the fastest time recorded was 3 minutes 18 seconds.

Phantasy Star Portable 2: Moyashimon and Jump Mission

Well we have several new features coming up this week. This includes the Moyashimon Visual Unit and 邪王降臨 collaboration mission.


What's New?

The "Jump 邪王降臨" mission follows the theme of "friends saving friends." In this mission, you rescue the three Naura sisters! As you play there will be several gimmicks to impede your victory! At the end of the mission you will fight the rare boss "Olga Dyran."  It appears this mission will play similar to "The Big Push", where you must protect the sisters from receiving damage.

This mission will be very difficult, but Sakai describes it also as DELICIOUS, because of the rare drops! It appears the previous Shonen Jump collaboration weapons will drop in this mission. Now you'll be able to obtain those weapons with different elemental percentages. Download this mission on 2/24/10.


Moyashimon World
6269 2230

The Moyashimon World Aura Unit will release on 2/23/10. You can obtain it by inputting a special password in the Vision Phone located in your room!


Blog Updates

  • Several new Evangelion DLC outfits will release sometime soon
  • Obtain your 3 Extend Codes by playing Maximum Attack's Exchange Mission in Story Mode.
  • Server Maintenance 2/24/10


Whats Next For Sakai Part 2 *

Shougai PSO posted a minor minor update about the next game in the Phantasy Star Series. In a recent Dengeki article, Sakai comments, "Phantasy Star Portable 2 can be seen as a compilation of the Phantasy Star Universe Series. Therefor, I think that next [game] will be a new "leap" for the series. As for [making] the Phantasy Star Series, "challenging" is one of the concepts. So there's an opinion that we should just make a console version of PSP2, however, I think that this [new] thing should be something more different from that. I want to not only draw in new players, but also deliver a game that older fans can approve of."

Shougai PSO speculates that a brand new game for the Phantasy Star Series is in development. They speculate the new game will not be the "Gurhal" series of PSP2, since he stated it will be "different thing" but may draw upon the flow of PSO's "Ragol Series", since he stated it would be a game the older fans approve of.

I would say from all of  this, this next game will be completely new, just as PSZero was, but may follow some older traditions that we've come to love throughout our years of playing Phantasy Star.
