    SonicTeam just posted details on an upcoming update for Phantasy Star Portable 2 which will correct a few bugs which have been affecting players who play online. A date has not been set for when this fix will be distributed, but once it has been decided, it will be reported on the official site. The following issues will be addressed with this update:

    • Disappearing/changing room decorations
    • Compensation for losing one-time-only decorations
    • Incorrectly imported trial save data
    • Online damage indication caused by lag
    • Excessive trap damage

    One important detail given to all players is to not use the Mimic Doll decoration in your room, as it seems to have been to blame for the disappearing decorations. The developers urge all players to remove that particular decoration from your room until the fix has been put in place. Furthermore, concerning decorations given as rewards through earning titles and using one-time-only passwords, you will be able to recollect these items through your vision phone following this update. (Passwords will have to be re-entered, but title rewards will be received as they normally would.) Remember, this will apply only to decorations, so you will not be able to get duplicate weapons or other items earned from titles. Finally, as an overall compensation for the trouble caused by these bugs, a password will be distributed with this update granting all players five Photon Boosters.

    Stay tuned for details on when to expect this update to be rolled out. Thanks goes to Amherst_Wind for bringing us this information! Check out the ongoing discussion at the forum.

    Update: Just in time for Christmas, the above-detailed update is ready to be downloaded! To download this update, press the triangle button after highlighting the PSP2 game icon on your PSP. This will bring up a menu with the option "Update" (??????). Select that (and make sure you are connected to the internet) to begin the installation. This file will require 19MB on your memory stick. Once installation is complete, the game's title screen will display "Ver.1.01" in the upper-right corner. Finally, for the five Photon Boosters, enter the password "ITEM GIFT" at your vision phone. But take note that you must first update your software before this password can be used.

    Siliconera.com is reporting that is possible to unlock Emilia, the heroine from Phantasy Star Portable 2, as a guest character in the Japanese version of Valkyria Chronicles 2. To unlock Emilia, all you need is a Japanese Phantasy Star Portable 2 save file. This save file will also give you access to extra tank customization stickers and two special missions. Given the extensive collaborations seen in Phantasy Star Portable 2, appearances like this are not unexpected. Let's hope Emilia appears in the North American version of Valkyria Chronicles 2. You can discuss this news in our Phantasy Star Portable forum.

    Details recently have come to light concerning a bug which affects players' rooms while playing Phantasy Star Portable 2 online. This bug occasionally makes the decorations displayed in your room disappear permanently. While it does not seem to occur all the time, SonicTeam recommends players to remove all room decorations and keep them stored away until further notice. A fix to this bug is being investigated, and more information will be posted as it becomes available. To players who lost decorations to this glitch, in particular, unique items awarded by achieving certain titles or through password downloads, compensation is being decided, but full details are still under wraps.

The biggest addition to the game is a dedicated set of online servers for the game's infrastructure mode. Also, several new gameplay mechanics have been included such as shields, a roll button, and charged shots. Phantasy Star Online fans will definitely be interested in the inclusion of copious amounts of PSO content. A large number of enemies, items, and bosses have been included from Episode I, Episode II, and Episode IV.

    One of the new features for Phantasy Star Portable 2 will be the inclusion of an extra difficulty level known as Hard Mode. Once you have completed the game on Normal Mode, you will be able to replay Story Missions on Hard Mode. This new difficulty will feature higher-level enemies and presumably better loot.
