On Vita, the newly added content is Chapter 9: The First Farewell. The story revolves around a mysterious wild dragon that has been attacking Darkers, a popular idol by the name of Kuna, and a mysterious young girl appears and vanishes without a sound. There seems to be some sort of connection between this young girl and the Darker eating Chrome Dragon, known as Hadred. Who is this young lady and what is Hadred’s purpose?



The PC version is getting a side story called “Arks Combat Tournament”. The tournament was made to commemorate the defeat of Dark Falz. The event is a score attack tournament that reaches one end of Planet Naberius to the other. It will require taking out plenty of Darkers, as a way to help clean Naberius while having competitive fun between the participants.

    • MediaMindControl

      I agree! very awesome design for Chrome Dragon.

  • gamerdude

    When is this coming in EU and ps3 EU?!
    All the pr is now on the vita wich is great for both of you who own one. But I know a lot of console owners here who are waiting for this on a home console. I don’t have that much time to play an MMO on the go anyway so console version? Is it even happening anymore?


    Also is this one of those cases where asian updates are in some limbo and released to the rest of the world in few years? Or are they slapping all this great content on the release day?

    So little info on where it counts. Faster paced combat looks great here.

      PC version is coming to the West this year, nothing’s been said about the PSV and if the treatment they are giving Project Diva is any indication of anything, we probably won’t see this game for the PSV in the West ever~.

    • Just a heads up: we really don’t encourage complaining about what systems a game is on around here. You can read more about this in our posting rules and guidelines:

  • RaikageV

    You can download and play it with a Japanese PSN account, right? Can someone tell me where exactly I can find it there?

    • Wappuli

      I don’t know if the store looks the same with Vita, but with PS3 one way to currently reach it is: ゲーム -> 新着コンテンツ -> 新着ゲーム(過去2週間) -> middle of 4th row.
      Or just use search and type ファンタシースターオンライン2
