Amongst other new features, SEGA and Alfa System also gave every single playable race a visual makeover for expansion pack, Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity. Here’s a quick look at how the new default designs look compared to the old ones:

Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity is due out February 24th, 2011 in Japan for 5,040 yen on UMD and 4,500 yen on PlayStation Network.

 

Food for thought:

The Phantasy Star Portable 2: Infinity devblog has an interesting tidbit on the new design of the female Newman designs. Apparently, their new outfit is meant to resemble a twelve-layered ceremonial kimono. If you look around the blog, you’ll come across tons of other neat concept art, too.

    … You’d figure almost the new female Human design used to be a Newman, looking at them. .-. That’s some change!

    • Draparde

      When i first saw them i thought that was the newman female outfit, mainly because they where not labeled like they are here.

  • holyPaladin

    Nice change IMO

    Gonna finish PSP2 soon..

    I agree, Sega. The original human female design wasn’t NEARLY stupid-looking enough. It’s still missing something, though. I’m thinking…werehog form.

    • Draparde

      good thing you can change outfits ingame eh? lol

      • http://www.myspace.com/effluentrainfall Effluent Rainfall

        No kidding. My God, it’s like the abhorrent devilspawn of Pippi Longstocking and Amy Rose.

        • Bruce

          the beasts look great though

            The beasts look like ghetto Jersey Shore-wannabe prostitutes…

    luckily, i am buying a PSP 3000 and this game is on the list of most wanted games on the PSP. 3rd Birthday first. :D

    Did PSP2 sold good enough? I really want this expansion! Well Phantasy Star games always make it here though…

      knowing how the stuff works here, dont expect to get this T_T

      • Draparde

        i’d actually be very surprised if we don’t get infinity…maybe a year from its release in japan…but i think we’ll get it eventually lol.

  • Shuryou

    How did the bad-ass male Newman get transformed into a fairy guy with stilt shoes!?
    How did the giant mechs of the CASTs get transformed into knights!?
    Is it necessary for the female CASTs to actually show cleavage? They’re robots!
    GRAAAAARRGH!

      I was saying the EXACT same thing to myself before I happened upon your comment. How about that?

      I do wanna know why they changed it THAT much though.

    • Exkaiser

      Newmans always were fairy guys with silly shoes. PSP2′s was an anomaly.

      CASTS were never giant, despite looking an awful lot like Takemikaduchis. I’m cool with robot knights, though, they’re neat.

      The female CASTs always had the option to show cleavage.

  • Za4th

    I don’t really like these new designs.
    It’s not really that they are bad, they just look totally wrong for a Phantasy Star game to me.

  • maxchain

    That female Cast looks like she’s doing this part-time to support her gig as a Super Robot Taisen boss.

    (To be fair, though, the stock outfit for them in Phantasy Star Portable 2 looks even more ridiculous.)

    • glemtvapen

      Haha. Looks like I know which race I’m going to play. Its time to live my dreams as a knight robot.
