• PSP2 Infinity Release Date Announced, New Information

    During a live stage event recording of "Infinity Radio" at TGS last night, Satoshi Sakai announced the Japanese release date for Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity! The game is scheduled for release on February 24, 2011. As there will be both physical and digital releases, there are two price points. The UMD version will retail for ?5,040, while the digital download version rings up at ?4,500. Furthermore, a special bonus will be given to those who pre-order the game in the form of a redeemable code which will net you the following items:
    • Flowen Suit and Rico Dress (Clothes and parts sets based on Heathcliff Flowen and "Red Ring" Rico Tyrell's clothing from PSO.)
    • Meniscurs (twin saber) and Fortuna (sword)
    • "Bonds Mission" code (To be used in the new mission creation feature to add Dilla Bravas as the boss to a mission.)
    In other exciting news, a few new details have been spotted in a video posted at Japanese gaming news site 4Gamer.net. The video itself features a battle against Geel Zohg, the semi-aquatic scorpion boss of Clad 6's VR resort area. Throughout the presentation, new (and returning) weapons and even a new Technic were spotted. A few of note include:
    • Foverse (A new fire Technic which creates fireballs that circle your character.)
    • Zero Cane (A wand originally featured in Phantasy Star Zero.)
    • Infinite Saber (A new twin saber.)
    Stay tuned as we await more details on this upcoming title. In the meantime, feel free to join in the ongoing discussion at the forum!

      Not to Sega. Looks like the US/EU players will be stuck out in the cold for another year while all the JP players bask in Infinity's warm glow. What a surprise.

      If it ever comes to our shore, will we get pre-order exclusives like those?
