Fingers move now

[Exploration section]

When moving a section, a green icon will appear next to the section name. The exploration section has less enemies, so you can safely collect gathering materials and more. However, be aware that in rare cases, high-level enemies and powerful boss enemies may appear.

[Combat section]

When moving between sections, a red icon will appear next to the section name. It is a dangerous place where many enemies appear. In addition, an "E marker" (enemy marker) will be displayed where the enemy appears.

[Leuker device]

It is a multifunctional terminal that exists in various places. By accessing it, you can use functions such as teleport, warehouse, and block movement. In addition, once accessed, the Leuker device is displayed on the world map and can be moved from the world map

[Resta sign / reverser sign]

Changes in the environment over time Over time, the weather may change (sunny, rainy, thunderstorms, etc.). The strength of some enemies changes depending on the weather and the environment such as daytime and nighttime.

Be careful, especially in bad weather such as thunderstorms, as very powerful enemies can appear.

[Message back]

Photon riding on the updrafter will allow you to climb significantly and move to higher altitudes.

[Item container]

There are three types of containers in the field: white, gold and red. Items can be obtained by destroying the container.

The number of red containers that appear per account is limited. In addition, some barriers are created and cannot be destroyed without destroying the device that is causing the barrier.

Thank you for you hard work, Google translate!

And now for a glorious meme:

In all seriousness, there are Challenge mode mechanics that made a return in similar fashions to overall gameplay.

Just so people are aware, the first post is using Google Translate, and this is obviously for the JP version of the game. There's no plans for CBT currently on Global.

Why can I hear her voice.


Leuker device is Ryuker device. Ryuker is something that has been in various Phantasy Star titles but not PSO2.

Watch it become Roku- I mean, Rappu Device. lol

Final translations will hopefully be better than Darker to Falspawn.

"The play data of the "PSO2: NGS" closed beta test will be destroyed as soon as the target test is completed. It cannot be used in the 2nd closed beta test or official service. Please note."

(The JP users will be using a copy of their current data anyways, so this isn't a big deal.)
