@Redex well that is where we must agree to disagree because I for one don't relish the idea of having all of my hard work developing my character erased by taking him with me into new genesis

That's fair, different styles for different people. All cool

@Zarozian I don't know for you,but my PC runs red dead redemptions between high and ultra at 60 fps,I am preeeeeetty sure i'll be fine lmfao

In the original Phantasy Star lore, the seal over The Profound Darkness weakens every 1.000 years.

It cannot possibly be a coincidence.

Many billions of years ago in space, a powerful, spiritual entity divided itself into two lesser beings that began to fight one another.

After a long and arduous battle, there was a victor. The winner banished the enemy spiritual life form into another dimension. The victor was called "The Great Light" and the defeated one "The Profound Darkness".

The Great Light feared the possibility of The Profound Darkness resurrecting itself, so it placed a seal over the dimensional portal. The seal was three planets revolving around one fixed star: the Algo Solar System.

The Great Light divided the responsibility of the seal between three races of "Protectors": the Parmians of Parma, the Dezolians of Dezolis, and the Motavians of Motavia.

However there were fluctuations in the strength of the seal; once every 1000 years, the seal would weaken drastically. Future generations of "Protectors" would also forget their mission.

As a contingency plan, The Great Light created the 4th planet Rykros, which returns to Algo once every 1000 years, as well as its inhabitants such as Le Roof, to remind the protectors of their mission when the seal's final moment came.

Well in Episode 6 someone who became the origin of the Profound Darkness and the Photons appears. She is the one who the Photoners sacrificed by pouring all the Photons into her which attracted the Profound Darkness to her and they sealed her together with it. We cannot hurt her at all with our weapons and powers because they are using photons. So the Profound Darkness is not the biggest threat anymore since we found a way to beat it for good. Its safe to assume that the Dolls are a new threat that is reminiscent of the ones from Final Fantasy 7 Remake where it tries to correct the timeline. That means someone screwed up somewhere and unleashed this new threat.![alt text](bb80b40d-0875-47bf-84f5-80d90d2bd283-image.png image url)

I play PSo2JP and i would hold our horses before reaching conclusions.

We will see what happens in the last patch.

@IfrianMMO It's more fun to speculate though lol! How else are we gonna stop ourselves from going bored?

Engage in epic battle with X foe. Arks fleet gets sling shotted into the future on the cusp of victory. They enter a universe were X is in control. Think Samurai Jack, Ark style.

Really, I can dig it. Not like we already are not far off from being a virtual parody of Samurai Jack...

Dimension hopping to a timeline 1000 years into the future. Very futurama like.

By the way, you may want to play the last patch in the JP version because right at the end you may come to learn that the whole "The profound darkness is not the biggest threat anymore" is ...well....veeeery subjective to say the least.

The Profound Darkness always ends up being the big bad and it´s quite obvious that it´s just using a certain someone.

Ohohohoho! YES!!!! SPOILERS!!!!

I have watched through the full 48 minutes. This is even better than I have hoped! = w=

ARKS will face Dark Falz.

And there will be drama.

And 1000 unnecessary cutscenes.

(Plz reduce the cutscenes. There's so many cutscenes that didn't seem to contribute to the story.)

The current version of the story on both JP and NA already has reduced the number of cutscenes from episodes 1, 2 and 3 when compared to the original story mode in the JP version.

Unfortunately they also removed a bunch of playable story quests.
