Earlier yesterday, SEGA held its annual live event with fans, and once again revealed loads of details for Phantasy Star Online 2’s upcoming content. Episode 3 was announced for late August, in which a new class, 2 new weapons, a new planet and more will make their appearances.
The new class is translated as “Bouncer”, which also means bodyguard. The 2 new weapons are Dual Blades and Jet Boots (really rare weapon type these days).1 of the Dual Blades skills can apparently absorb/ drain PP, while Jet Boots can perform attacks from the air and activate support skills.
The new planet is apparently based on Japanese cultural myths and legends, as seen in the monster “youkai” and building designs. There are 2 warring factions on this planet, loosely translated as “Black” and “White”. There are also many twitches, such as bonus EXP in parties, accessory slot 4 etc.
