Ho ho ho, Christmas-Themed Content Is Coming To Phantasy Star Online 2

By Ishaan . November 30, 2012 . 12:00pm

Phantasy Star Online 2’s next update is titled “Where Darkness Gathers”. Sega released a new promo video showing the contents of the update off, and you can take a look at it below:



The entire “Where Darkness Gathers” update will be delivered in smaller individual updates. December 12th will see the release of a boss called Dark Falz, who you will fight in an emergency quest. That’s him below:



Dark Falz is huge, supposedly planet-like. You’ll start out by fighting his arms and then move on to his body.


Christmas-themed content will also be part of the update. A Christmas lobby with a giant Christmas tree will be part of the festivities as well. Additionally, Rappies will be changed into Saint Rappies, and you may find that they drop a special item. Finally, the Naura sisters will set up a cake shop where they sell treats and will also make an appearance in an emergency quest.



Christmas content will be in effect from December 5th – December 26th.

    at the 1min 20sec mark of the video it was awesome how that character pulled out the fish weapon and used it as a snowboard
    I hope Sega adds more weapons and monsters from the PSO eps 1-4 like the Del Saber etc

    Oh my God those birds. So cute.

  • Sergio Briceño

    Old school music is always better.

    Holy hell Dark Falz. I still recall him from the first Phantasy Star game… but if he’s just ONE instance boss, what are they going to throw in that can TOP him?

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Olga Flow seems a logical addition. For all its faults, PSU had some nasty golem themed bosses which were clearly reskinned DF. DF himself had some neat additions in PSU.

  • Dear Lord this was an epic trailer! I want to play this soooo bad! 1 more month, just 1 more month! >_<

  • zed grim

    All of dark falz and dulk falz are awesome and disturbing.

    • ZEROthefirst

      Not the De Rol Le clone Dark Falz in the PSUniverse series.

  • s07195

    Epic music.

  • Elvick

    This really makes me want to play it. I hope Sega ends up bringing the Vita version over too. ):

  • KingRuff

    Why do MMOs always make you kill adorable little animals? Haha they aren’t even a threat. Look at that picture and tell me one bad thing they could’ve done to anybody.
