@uaguiaru It's kind of a weird middle-ground where if you're into fashion it's more like an expansion because most stuff transfers, and if you're into gameplay it's more like a new game because of the changes to combat/classes and the fact that you'll have to re-level/grind new gear. I haven't been keeping up with the latest reveal streams, but here's what transfers according to the Reddit wiki:
What can I bring with me from PSO2 to PSO2:NGS?
The following items have been confirmed to NOT transfer to PSO2:NGS:
- Skill Rings
- Consumable Items used for battle, growth, and enhancement
- Boost Items (Boosters such as Triboosters)
- Room Furnishings
- Any currencies other than Arks Cash (AC) and Star Gems (SG)
- Your item pack/inventory itself
While AC and SG will be shared between PSO2:NGS and PSO2, Meseta, FUN, and other currencies greatly affect the balance of the game's economy and these will not be shared between PSO2:NGS and PSO2. PSO2:NGS will have a new main currency.
PSO2 and PSO2:NGS will have separate inventories. The PSO2 inventory can only store PSO2 items, while the PSO2:NGS inventory can only store PSO2:NGS items.
Character growth, including Class levels & EXP, Class Skills, Photon Arts, Techniques and Titles will also not transfer over.
Weapons, Units and Mags will transfer to PSO2:NGS, but will behave differently:
Weapon stats, augments, and potentials will change.
Units will become armor that is not visible. Even Units that have been obtained in PSO2 will become invisible in PSO2:NGS. Much like weapons, stats, augments and potentials will change.
Mags will become more cosmetic, keeping their Evolution Device data but not providing stats and combat benefits.
It is worth noting that Weapons and Units transferred from PSO2 may not be immediately usable until your character reaches a certain level requirement for them.
What fashion will transfer over?
The following fashion elements will transfer to PSO2:NGS:
- Body Parts
- Arms Parts
- Legs Parts
- Weapon Camos
Items registered from tickets, such as:
- Body Paint
- Head Parts
- Makeup Pattern
- Face Variants
