PSPo2: Touring Japan!

Rappy Kid and Terada updated today! This is more propaganda news than gameplay features so..


Touring Shops across the country

It's the Phantasy Star Portable 2: Early Experience Party, across Japan in 7 different cities, you'll be able to meet up in one of 14 different locales and shops to play the game early! It's a pretty long list of locations which you can check out here. Of note you'll be able to receive these limited edition cards. These cards have item passwords on them that you can input in your vision phone.

emilia and yuto

They will give out these item password cards based on certain requirements. Just by playing the game on that day, you'll receive the "Special Item Password Card: Emilia" . In addition to this, they will also give you the "Special item Password Card: Yuto" if you reserved the game in the shop they are attending.


Yuto's Weapon: Toop Nasul
Emilia's Weapon: Klarita Visus

You can input these item codes within the demo version of the game too! To do this, access story mode and enter your room, head to the vision phone and insert the item codes.  You'll receive the items based on which card you have in the screenshot above. Make sure to attend early because these password cards are in limited supply!



Sakai doesn't need lens flare to make him cool!

At a later date, the passwords for these items will be released on the official site, so don't worry if you can't attend, you'll just miss out in meeting Sakai or Senior Director Terada if they make a surprise visit that day.

Phantasy Star Portable 2 Official Site Updates: Hoshin Engi Artist Collab, My Room, Partner Machinery Dragon And Retro

The official site updated today, and if you visit this blog you already know it's going to be a re re re hash of information already released. So to make this interesting we"ll add some new elements inside. It's nice to see NA video game news sites covering Phantasy Star Portable 2 but for some reason they seem to skip out on a majority of the major changes that were announced. If you follow this blog or other fan sites you'll be pretty much in the know days before Sega of Japan releases official news overseas. Cool ain't it! POWA UPU!

The official site became very white… They also added Promo Video 3, which has already been uploaded on Youtube a few weeks ago.


Hoshin Engi Collaboration


Ryu Fujisaki, artist for the manga Houshin Engi, created a pretty strange outfit. It's like a cross between dot hack and Kingdom Hearts. The outfit is called Blank Epoch and Shin no Zou (Telltale Hearts) which are knuckles with freaky glowing effects.


Let's knock down enemies with these knuckles!


PM Dragon and Retro

Due to popular demand, Partner Machinery selection has increased. This time two new types have been introduced. Dragon and Retro type attaches a "support effect" with the player.

Retro Type: GH 510
It small! It Attacks! It reduces fire and lightning damage.


Customize your room!


You can change the theme of your room by purchasing a reform ticket. Change to any style you want, go from a gymnasium themed room to a cute and girly pink paradise!


Up to four people in both multi modes can enter your room.
You can purchase a whole assortment of furniture and objects!


Type Counter


Enhance your character's class by visiting the type counter. Here you can upgrade your class by spending "extend points" to add or remove weapon categories and grades. Make your ideal class in any way you want.


You can also embed "abilities" in your character to enhance their battle style. Try out the abilities "Full Charge Shot" "Wild Blast" and "PP Guard Save" and more… For more information read here and here.
