Sakai updated today with another question and answer session. Let's go through some of them.
Main Character Clothes
A hugely requested feature, now you'll be able to wear the main character clothes, as you can see in both pictures. The male is wearing Yuto's outfit whereas the female is wearing a color variation of Emilia's outfit.
Go all Gothic with Emilia's outfit.
My Room and Partner Machinery
There isn't that many changes to My Room if you've been following PSU:AoI. My room is a feature where you can decorate and remodel using a "reform ticket". Both features can be accessed through your Partner Machinery. Unfortunately you will not be able to use a "Move Pass" (this is a feature in PSU:AoI where you can move your room to another planet.) Sakai will go into more details tomorrow about your "Vision Phone."
Sakai has greatly enhanced the amount of Partner Machinery available. Now you will get about 60 different types. You can evolve some of them by either purchasing evolution devices in stores or obtaining it through some other means.
Partner Machinery has the following options:
- My Room Tutorial
Read a tutorial on the functions of your room.
- PM Function
Allow your PM to evolve with an evolution device.
- Reform My Room
Change the look of your room with a "Reform Ticket"
- Room Goods Management
Customize your room, you can turn this option on or off.
- Jukebox Management
Play Background musicin your room by obtaining various Jukebox Discs.
Rare Drop Boost
Previously the Drop Boost rate of items and meseta were increased based on which title you attached. In PSP2, both of these systems are now implemented as an "ability" in the ability customize system. The ability applies to each respective player. There is also another system that handles the rare drop boost, based on the leader, this effect will attach to the whole party. It sounds as if the leader has the option of turning this on or off.
As for Drop Rate increases, it was noted that in PSP1, certain items stopped appearing, but he says not to worry about this in PSP2.
Will Vivienne Appear?
Sorry, Sakai blurred it out…
