Christmas AC Scratch Costumes Sneak Peak

Thanks to data mining and a forum thread at PSO World here, we’re able to get a first look at how some of the new Christmas AC Scratch costumes will look like in-game.  Here’s a sample of female costumes that might be available:

From the top row in the image above, we have the Santa Dress (サンタドレス) in 3 color variations.

From bottom-left, we have:

  1. What looks like a recolor of the popular Kanagi Maihime (カナギマイヒメ) (Shrine Maiden) costume,
  2. Shilling Order (シリングオーダー), female version of the male ranger costume,
  3. NPC Matoi’s (マトイ) outfit!  Fans will be going crazy over this no doubt, and finally…
  4. Female version of the Haze Sorcerer (ヘイズソーサラー) costume.

PSO2 JP December 2012 Gameplay Updates

The December update – titled “(The Place) Where Darkness Gathers” (闇の集いし場) – will feature a new mega-boss, Dark Falz (ダーク・ファルス).

New Planet-Sized Mega Boss, Dark Falz (ダーク・ファルス)

Dark Falz (ダーク・ファルス)

Seems that Dark Falz will appear in a special Emergency Quest, where the Arks Ship is attacked by planet-sized Dark Falz and numerous “Falz Arms” (ファルス・アーム).  If players are able to destroy enough Falz Arms (which weakens the main boss), they will be able to face off with the main boss, “Dark Falz Elder (ダークファルス・エルダー), in a stage 2 battle.
