First Phantasy Star Portable 2 English Demo Codes Released
By Ryna at 09/07/2010 - 5:32pm
Phantasy Star Portable 2

One of the unique features of Phantasy Star Portable 2 is that unique items can be obtained by entering specific codes into the Visiphone system. The first set of these codes was posted earlier today:

  • 29888026 - Clarita Visas l
  • 54186516 - Puyo Pop Fever Gun
  • 32091120 - Bullet Lancer

To access your Visiphone, go to your player room and activate the console beside your MySynth. Next, pick the "Password Entry" option and enter the code. If you are unhappy with the weapon percentage you receive, reset the system - without saving - and try again.

PSP2 Demo Hits US Playstation Store Featuring Story Chapter One & Multiplayer
By Tomeeboy at 08/17/2010 - 6:19pm
Phantasy Star Portable 2

You've watched the trailer, seen the screenshots, and maybe even played the import. Now, as we get even closer to the US release of Phantasy Star Portable 2, you can get your first taste of the localized version of the game. The PSP2 demo is here!


Released on the US PSN store earlier this evening and weighing in at 342MB, the PSP2 demo features the first chapter of the game's story mode and also includes support for both ad-hoc and online multiplayer (available to everyone, unlike the Japanese PSP2 demo). In addition, players can import their original Phantasy Star Portable character, granting them two bonus items; a slot unit with a visual bonus and Exam Saber.



As part of the announcement about the demo, it was also revealed that each copy of PSP2 will include a unique, one-time code that will be linked to players' PSN accounts. Registering this code will allow players unlimited lifetime access to the game's online mode, no subscriptions or fees required.


Feel free to drop by our PSP2 Forum, where a demo discussion is already underway! You can also visit our Official Phantasy Star Portable 2 Pre-Order Thread / FAQ for the latest release date information and pre-order buzz.

If the recent release announcement for Phantasy Star Portable 2 in the US and Europe has you craving for a PSP2 fix, Sega's latest video should help suppress your hunger for just a while longer. Unlike the previous video, which showcased some gameplay and talked about features in the PSP2 E3 demo, this one is pretty much a cut-scene and character montage. Enjoy!

Sega community team member RubyEclipse dropped by the PSP2 forum to let us know that the winners of Sega's Phantasy Star Portable 2 fan art contest have been announced! The top 10 entries from the contest were posted on Sega's blog, along with some notes about why the judges liked each one. In a surprise twist, it was revealed that in addition to the first place entry, the second place entry will also be included in the Western release of Phantasy Star Portable 2.

For those of you wondering, the winning entry is a parody of the famous Barack Obama "Hope" poster, which was designed during the 2008 election season. The runner-up features Alis Landale, the main character from the first Phantasy Star game.


Congratulations to the winners! We'll look forward to seeing the in-game versions of these two entries! Be sure to check out Sega's blog for the top 10 announcement, as well as their Flickr page for a gallery of all the entries.

Phantasy Star Portable 2 Release Announced for North America and Europe
By EspioKaos at 05/21/2010 - 9:49am
Phantasy Star Portable 2

Announced this morning on the SEGA Europe blog, Phantasy Star Portable 2 for the PSP has been confirmed for release in North America and Europe this year. Specific details are a bit slim, but Phantasy Star fans can expect to see PSP2 become available sometime in Fall 2010. If you were bummed that Sega's recent teaser countdown was not for a Phantasy Star game, this will hopefully brighten your day!


The story in Phantasy Star Portable 2 takes place three years after the events in Phantasy Star Universe, with resources in Gurhal quickly running out. Players will work for a private military group, known as "Little Wing", aboard the space colony Clad 6.



One of Sega's top five selling games of last year, PSP2's Western release will include a new story, full online functionality, new weapons, additional character customizations, an enhanced combat system, and other improvements. It is still uncertain which content and DLC from the Japanese release will survive the trip West, but more information should be available in the near future.


We'll keep you up to speed on the latest details and release date, but in the meantime, join in on the ongoing discussion of this exciting news in the forums!


Update: Gamestop now has PSP2 available for pre-order and is showing an estimated released date of September 28, 2010. Thanks to Thor131 for the heads up!
