• PSU Site Update for October 28

    This week's official site update featured a new character and showed us pictures on the Photon Arts, Party, and Cut-In-Chat system. The images are mirrored here for your convience. Also, EspioKaos has translated some of the text from the new update and has given PSOW permission to use it. So, on with the update!



    Kou Taragi

    Race: Human
    Gender: Male
    Age: 33 Years
    Profile: Kou is an associate professor of engineering at a college in Parum's Lohzenom City. He began his career as a major in photon engineering, but then changed over to the research of A-photons. He taught Maya during the time that he was a photon engineering major.

    Photon Arts:


    You will be able to link different styles of Photon Arts to different weapons. For melee weapons, you will be able to use skills such as "Rising Slash" and "Cross Rush". On ranged weapons, you can link different specials with your bullets including "Burning Bullet" and "Frozen Bullet". Using these kinds of attacks will use up Photon Points.

    Party System:

    These are some standard party shots. Even though it is not shown here, we learned from a recent EGM interview that you will be able to fill up party slots in online games with Partner Robots.

    Cut-In-Chat:

    It appears the Symbol Chat system is being replaced with a scheme that will feature in-sets of character faces. These in-sets will convey emotions and a text bubble for whatever the character is trying to say. Also, photon chairs are being replaced with the amazing ability to lie on the ground!

    Credit goes to DarK-SuN and Kazuma56 for pointing out the new updates.

    You can discuss these updates in our Phantasy Star Universe forums.

      I'm not that keen on the new symbol chat replacement. PSO's symbol chat gave us a chance to be creative, but with PSU all we get are a bunch of stock animations of your characters head, blah!

      re: what i said

      is anyone else happy with the new emotes?

      at least now we wont have annoying 12 year olds spamming rude messages.. and what not

      and we wont have people trying to exploit the whole emote thing to fsod people

      this may make the lobbys a lot more bearable, though im sure kids will find a way to annoy older users..
