Phantasy Star Portable 2: Details about Shizuru, Braver Class, Customization, PM, and Demo

Posted by Ricardo

Sakai wants to clear up some details regarding the Phantasy Star Portable 2: Famitsu Article. It was previously analyzed at this site, so now we’ll look into more details!

Mika and Shizuru

Both Mika and Shizuru appear to be somehow connected by fate to an old civilization. You’ll meet Mika at the end of chapter 1. Mika’s voice actor is Sayaka Ohara, who provides a motherly gentle voice.

Shizuru on the other hand can be seen in the earlier stages blocking Emilia’s path. He has silvery hair and with a very gaudy outfit. He has many secrets, in fact all main characters have secrets. Did you know Shizuru’s nanotranser holds his swords?

Emilia can’t get passed me!

 

Customize your battle type!

So, Sakai has reduced the amount of classes the game has to four. The newest class, braver, appears to be a mixture of hunter, ranger, and force, as can be seen by it’s photon art cap. 

This time you’ll be able to customize each type as you see fit with “Type Extend” and “Ability Customize.” In PSP1 and PSU, when you cleared a mission, you would gain mission points… Well in PSP2, the name has been changed to type points. As you amass these type points, they increase your type level. Based on your “type level” you gain “extend points” which customizes your class even further.

type extend

The “Type Extend” system will use your “extend points” to add additional weapon categories to your class. When you apply these points to your weapon category, you can either increase or decrease the grade. For instance you can upgrade a C rank claw to B rank or downgrade it back to C rank. So with this mix and match system, you could essentially apply an S rank sword weapon category to the Force class. However, keep in mind you are still limited by your photon art cap. In addition to this it is highly impossible to apply S rank to all weapon categories.

ability customize 3

“Abilities” allow you to customize your character even further by equipping special features. For example you can apply the HP boost or PP boost ability. There are about 100 different kinds of abilities. Abilities are limited by the slot system, since each ability costs a certain amount of slot points. You can only apply a limited amount. Some abilities will cost 1 slot as others may cost 3. As your type level goes up, there will be more ability slots available to you.

 

My Room Customize

my room

You’ll be able to customize your room just like in Phantasy Star Universe. All the room items from Ambition of the Illuminus will be included in addition to some brand new ones. You’ll be able to invite players into your rooms in Multi Mode and Internet Multi mode so you can show off your designer skills!

 

Partner Machinery

In addition to the 8 kinds of partner machinery in PSP1, PSP2 will increase this amount by adding two types, “Retro” and “Dragon”.

Retro type

The Retro version is like a little retro robot guy who runs on the ground and attacks enemies.

dragon type

The Dragon version is like a dragon who floats and attacks enemies in a mysterious motion.

 

Tales of Dragon

Dragon Tails

PSO Dragon has a new battle strategy. If you are a hunter and braver, you focus on the tail… I heard the dragon loses it’s balance and….

 

Demo

The demo will be available November 1st, at the JP PSN store. You can download it for free and play ad hoc or infrastructure mode. The demo needs PSP FIRMWARE 6.00 in order to play it! Please note that infrastructure mode (internet multi mode) will be available for a LIMITED TIME, the date it will end is December 3rd, 2009.

Infrastructure mode is by invitation only. Each individual who wants to play will receive a ticket, and Sega will hold a drawing and randomly select players . The announcement of who shall play internet multi mode will be provided at the official website.

You’ll be able to import your character from PSU:AoI and Phantasy Star Portable 1. You must allow 370MB of space on your PSP memory stick. There will also be a special menu on the main screen which will differ if your demo was downloaded online, or you obtained the UMD version.

Nanoblast starts at LV10. If you choose the gold or silver forms, the Nanoblast has a random chance of turning into the black form.

For DREDD – I’ve been offline so I didn’t respond.It’s not rare for someone to be a Tank.Human+Hunter+w/e melee class=Tank.If you mean you can do lots of damage on a “single” target with Hunter with a Hunter weapon:congrats.

For KWT – My computer does the same thing. If you don’t want to wait for the download to finish (or are dcing while waiting like I was): go to the configuration settings and turn off the big screen videos all together. Sega is investigating the issue (http://pso2.jp/players/support/measures/?id=3406).

For KWT – 2nd by terminating the download directly, its possible to terminate the download because the game and the download IP are 2 different IP, the game IP usually are 210.129.209.*:* where the * is random number, but note that the game will try to re-download again if u do this if u re-enter the lobby by any way, including from Campship

For KWT – 1st depend on ur connection wait for the download to get finish and do not changing block u can check the bandwith usage of ur connection to determine it finish or not, normally PSO use 0,13kb/s with no people around up to 5-8kb/s with people around
