Here’s a quick post about the recently released Drama CD 「Project ~Dream Arks!~」, as well as new updates as of the July 31, 2013 maintenance (new Player Campaigns, another upcoming NicoNico Live Broadcast, and some other updates).

The next AC Scratch – “Wild Ocean Pirates” – is also coming next week, so we’ll take a quick look at that as well.

Oh, don’t forget to create your extra character and level it to Level 30, since there’s a Player Campaign for that as well that’s ending on August 6, 2013.

Read on for full details…

Drama CD 「Project ~Dream Arks!~」

Recently SEGA released a special Drama CD for Phantasy Star Online 2, titled 「Project ~Dream Arks!~」 (ドラマCD「ファンタシースターオンライン2」~Project ドリームアークス!~).

The Drama CD features 3 main casts – the popular Afin (アフィン), Zeno (ゼノ) and Echo (エコー) – as they go on a public relations campaign for Arks.

Follow the trio as they conduct interviews with Arks citizens and other popular Arks NPCs like Maroo (マールー)、Orza (オーザ) and Lisa (リサ) as well.

And of course, there are special in-game Item Codes that come with the Drama CD too.

I did some digging around and found a blog post by someone who purchased the Drama CD, listing the Item Names from the Item Codes that come with the Drama CD.

Here’s the Item Names you can copy and paste into the in-game search at My Shop if you’re not interested in the Drama CD but want the items:

  • 男性[EX]ボイスB01 | Male [EX] Voice B01
  • 男性[EX]ボイスB02 | Male [EX] Voice B02
  • 男性C[EX]ボイスB01 | Male C [EX] Voice B01
  • 男性C[EX]ボイスB02 | Male C [EX] Voice B02
  • 女性[EX]ボイスB01 | Female [EX] Voice B01
  • 女性C[EX]ボイスB01 | Female C [EX] Voice B02
  • ドリームアークスポスター | Dream Arks Poster
  • VD「人選ミス」 | VD「Personnel Selection Miss」 ←this is My Room Jukebox Music CD
  • ジュークボックス | Jukebox (just normal Jukebox most people should have)

It seems that the male voices are of Afin and Zeno, while the female voice is Echo.

The Dream Arks Poster is a Room Goods poster that’s the cover of the Drama CD jacket.  Here’s how it looks like in My Room:

Finally, the VD「Personnel Selection Miss」 is a Jukebox Music Disc you can put into your My Room Jukebox.  The music is a soundtrack from the Drama CD.

If some of the items do not appear in search on your server, it probably means nobody put it up for sale yet.  On Ship 3, I haven’t seen any of the voices in My Shop yet, and there’s only 1 music disc up for 12 million meseta ^^; (as of July 31, 2013 when I checked).

Oh, and here’s how the actual Drama CD looks like:

Here’s where you can get the actual Drama CD itself:

Phantasy Star Online 2 Design VISA Card

As if all the collaboration SEGA has done with other company and games isn’t already enough, you can even get a specially designed Phantasy Star Online 2 VISA Card!

(Whether you can use the card in everyday life without getting embarrassed, though, is another story…)

Here’s how it looks like:

Those who apply for the Phantasy Star Online 2 VISA card will also receive a number of in-game items, including a unique Mag Evolution Device/Nanahana and 30 Day Premium Set Ticket.

Using the VISA card for purchases and getting “points” up to certain amounts will also yield other in-game bonuses like Rare Drop Rate +250% and Grinding Success Rate +30%, among other things.

But most notable of the bonuses is the Mag Evolution Device/Nanahana, pictured below.
