• Supplemental Update Hitting Japan Soon!

    The long-awaited supplemental update announced for the Japanese PC/PS2 version of Phantasy Star Universe will be hitting the Japanese servers this week! Full details of March 26's JP server update were announced early this morning. Here's a bit of what to expect from this update.

    • Many new weapons, clothes, SUV weapons and materials will be added.
    • The first three "conditional missions" will be added to a new area on the third floor of Clyez City.
    • The new conditional missions will play in a similar manner to PSO's C-mode, whereby various restrictions will be put in place on the entire party.
    • Certain photon arts and SUV weapons will receive adjustments to their power and abilities.
    • A variety of stat adjustments will be made to all types. Also, Guntechers and Wartechers will be able to equip double sabers up to grade A.
    • Longbows will receive an increase to their rate of fire and attack power. Grenades will a reduction in PP consumption.
    • GUARDIANS advanced style will be introduced. This will allow players to customize their character's abilities.

    There is much, much more to this update than what's listed above. For full details, check out this translation of the Japanese announcement. Then feel free to jump into the ongoing discussion of what's to come!

    Update: Only a few short hours after the supplemental update went live on the Japanese servers, it had to be removed due to a few major issues arising. As it stands, this update has been postponed until further notice. We'll update this news story as new information comes in.

    Update #2: A follow-up report was posted on the Japanese site stating that work to correct the problems with this update is progressing and that the update may be ready to go live as early as Monday, March 30. Keep in mind, however, that this date is not set in stone, and the update could occur at any point after then. Furthermore, as an apology to all players, a two week reward period will be implemented at a future date. Please see this post for full details.

    Update #3: Maintenance occurred this morning on the Japanese PC/PS2 servers to implement the update, and so far everything seems to be going very well!

      That's just great. Why do we even have this game in the USA? Its obvious that Sega is not very concerned about what we get for content. So anyone wanna take a guess on, if I cancel my gaurdians license now and renew it when this update comes to the USA, how much money will I have saved?

      You'll have saved about 100.00. If you play in the UK. If you're in the USA, you'll save about $160.
      Just a guess.

      Lol, tell me about it Level 10 attack with double sabers. Well at least you can do the whole combo for Tornado Dance. But from what I understand that is one of the PA that's going to get nerfed with this update :/

      ya, its pretty retarded... the only use that i could see taht a GT would want 2 use a double saber w/ lv10 skills is tornado dance, just 2 get around, but their nerfing the distance taht u r gonna move wen u use it... so they BASICALLY said 'hey look were gonna give u a new wep!! 2 bad it sucks now...'

      Why reduce the paradi range and power?.. That is the main reason to make a CAST fighter in this game.. well.. the acc.. but anyway.. WTF! lol..
      Half the things listed are cool.. but why are there bad things for almost every one of those things! ><! E.g GUN.. techers.. using double sabers? O.o Shouldn't they just have better buffs? Wartechers.. understandable.
