Just Call In A Satellite Cannon If The Foes Are Too Big In Phantasy Star Online 2

By Eugene . March 28, 2014 . 1:02pm

 

While not ones to shy away from kooky fun stuff and collaborations, Sega also have a more regular Spring update Phantasy Star Online 2 in Japan. This is on top of their recent 7-11 tieup and Attack on Titan collaboration outfits and weapons.

 

As part of Spring’s “Bonds that Connect the Future” update, there’s a series of five new photon arts and techniques for characters to pick up. Swordsmen can get ahold of Sacrifice Bite;

 

 

Assault Rifle shooty shooters will be able to fire a Satellite Cannon.

 

 

Dual Saber users get Chaos Riser’s twisty tornado attacks.

 

 

and Ice and Light magic users pick up an Il Barta ice crystal attack and Il Grants laser light show photon crystal attack.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can also take part in a new event to defend an area called Mining Base Defensive Mission: Intrusion. Here, you’ll encounter new enemies such as Vidluda bugs that are small, but pack a stun attack that’ll add up real quick in a hurry.

 

You’ll have to make quick work of them with five different control areas that you can’t let be destroyed by the invading armies of Darker monsters. On the bright side, there are some defensive barriers already in place for players to make use of, but don’t expect them to last too long if left to be battered down.

 

  

 

Do well, and you might get a new set of 11 Star gear such as Knight Of Volks, a Charge Howitzer, or Kongou lance.

 

 

 

 

 

If you prefer to hunt elsewhere, there are also new Super  Hard Advanced Quests in the Tundra, Underground Tunnels and Floating Continents. Enemies here will scale up to around level 66 to 70. You’ll get 11-Star weapons here, too, like the Sage Stole wand or twin-machine-gun Stable.

 

Finally, for those with a more homely bend, there’s also a new bunch of furniture and such to pick up to decorate the home with as well.

 

Phantasy Star Online 2 is available in Japan on the PC and PlayStation Vita. The game is also coming to South East Asia in English form in 2014.

    So many game studios in Japan are making new games for the Vita and cranking them out every other week but in the west (USA/UK) game studios have been dead silent and haven’t made any real annoucement besides Borderlands 2 port, GOW port, and Sly Cooper port.

    • Andar

      It seems to me that, in the wake of the PSP, there is a fear of developing for the device, which is becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. Except I would argue that this played a hand (but was not entirely responsible) in the PSP’s own decline as well.

      In spite of that, I’m excited by what we have gotten for it, at least. I’m at a point in my life where portable gaming has become much more viable than home consoles, and if nothing else I’ll be excited to continue playing Atelier ports should they be localized.

      • J_Joestar

        I think it is a distaste from bigger western devs for developing on handhelds in general as even the 3DS with it’s numbers doesn’t get much western support aside from cash-in titles and indies.

        • Kornelious

          Doesn’t Really matter to me, I only play a few western games so if the Vita is gonna be a Japanese based gaming system then that’s just awesome :)

          • leingod

            Sure… if they’d localize more of them it’d be nice, though.

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      To be fair, the PSV isn’t the only one who got shafted in the West. PSO2 was slated from the get go for PC and yet that seems to have been washed away by time~.

  • BlitzWhat

    Is that the mighty Heaven Striker making a return?

    • Sergio Briceño

      Oh good times. Does seem like it. In a much less portable form though.

  • J_Joestar

    Satellite Cannon?
    can you customize a character into Chachamaru?

  • DanielGearSolid

    Alotta stuff happened on gaf today

    Yet siliconera remains tranquil as ever

    Love this site

  • dragoon_slayer12

    Siliconera, please, stop posting PSO stuff until it reaches NA, your killing me…. :’( *sniff*

    • Crevox

      If you want to play it, go play it, nothing is stopping you

      • dragoon_slayer12

        6 year old pc filled with viruses and no money to either rig it up or buy a new one are what’s stopping me. Besides, I was joking with my previous post

        • Crevox

          Not a funny joke. Six year old computer doesn’t matter, the game runs on garbo laptops with integrated graphics; it’s designed to run on weak computers.

          Fixing a computer doesn’t take money to remove “viruses”, and I wouldn’t imagine they would stop you from playing PSO2 if the computer is able to go on the internet. Either way, it’s not an excuse.

      • Eilanzer

        With a bazillion ping? almost 5 sec action delay…Herr….No tks…

        • Crevox

          Game runs fine with “high ping.” I don’t feel or notice any lag playing from NA.

  • Callonia

    Keep trying sega, maybe someday NA will finally hate you for once.

    • Ferrick

      finally?

      • Callonia

        The day that comes when Siliconera stops publishing articles on PSO2.

        • Ferrick

          no, i meant; what do you mean by “someday NA will finally hate you (sega) for once”? Pretty sure they’re already hated at this point

          • Callonia

            They’re still not hated enough because Siliconera is still publishing article on sega.

          • Ferrick

            dat logic >.>

  • Lemski07

    but then where’s dat english version…. Im waiting!..

  • Kaitsu

    Soon, Asia servers, soon.
    As long as it’s fully English, that’s all that matters.

    Then again, they’ll probably IP block because flood. ;_;

    • Renaldi Saputra

      not for JP Vita region player

  • Eilanzer

    Soo much stuff…So lil murican Ç_Ç

  • Asukai Kari

    I still want this game

  • Vash bane

    is that a new weapon the shield sword thingy? haven’t seen it in the past games.

  • http://hanzoadam.tumblr.com/ Hanzoadam

    I want it soo badly

  • Crevox

    I reported you. The “joke” as you call it was never funny, and it’s been going on for year(s) now. It just promotes a negative atmosphere and doesn’t encourage any discussion about the game, the update, or the article in question.

    Either play the game, or don’t. There’s no need for more of these “jokes.”

  • Zero_Destiny

    Really? -____-
    Cut out the personal attacks, you should know better. That’s your warning, really I’d of thunk I didn’t need to give you one.

  • Zero_Destiny

    Can we stop this now, please? It’s off-topic, and honestly your negativity isn’t really any better then dragoon’s over here.

    Jokes are fine to a certain extent, and really I wouldn’t want to run a site with such a crazy crack down on humor. His original comment was just fine, it certainly isn’t anything questionable or offensive. Don’t hound the guy over it. Move on.

  • Crevox

    It becomes a problem when someone calls me a “bitch” and suggests he is pirating movies.

  • Zero_Destiny

    Yeah, duly noted, and taken care of now. :) Let’s try not to drag it out to such a case again in the future though, was obviously gonna go no where.

    [sorry about that too ^^]

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I apologize to this site, I do know better, but I hate judgemental, condescending people. I could have re-worded it more appropriately, but I was really mad.
    Am curious though, why wouldn’t you think to give me a warning? I didn’t feel like I made impressions enough to be noticed.

  • Zero_Destiny

    No matter the circumstance (and I fully understand here) you flat out threatened someone. That’s not how this community tries to run itself. Having respect for others is part of what is expected.

    It’s easy to go “oh, it’s only the internet” but the staff here takes itself very seriously, and works very hard. This is their livelihood, and their passion. Actual conversation between the members of the community is what we wanna see, hence my talking to Crevox who was antagonizing. But that said, a threat is a threat all the same.

    And really, c’mon, you should know better. :) Just don’t let your anger get the best of ya’ and there should be nothing to worry about. I’ve really never have seen much trouble with you in the past, was kinda sad to see such a display this morning.
