              For Sony PlayStation Portable

STORY MODE WALKTHROUGH by DeviFoxx [devifoxx@devimension.com]


============================================================

 Dedicated to my dear friends, Jessica and Christine, who
seem to think that being able to "read scribbles and chicken
scratch" is a silly thing to learn how to do.  And to Cody
from Alabamaaaaa~~ ... I know I have their support.

============================================================

 Alright, let's get this out of the way first. This is just
an FAQ to get you through the Story Mode of PSP2. This isn't
an FAQ for the entire game. That's what Wikis are for,
and this is no Wiki.

 I will be using Japanese text occassionally in this
walkthrough, so in order to properly see it, you will need
to have Asian Language Character Support on your computer
installed, and to view this page in the proper encoded
format. While I'm using "Unicode (UTF-8)" format, some sites
might change it to "Shift_JIS" format. You can change the
encoding of this page in browsers like FireFox and Internet
Explorer by going to "View" >>> "Character Encoding",
and selecting the correct encoding format.

 If you plan to cite this FAQ, I don't mind if you do it
or not, but please give credit where credit is due. I'd be
very appreciative of it.

 I don't expect you to be 100% fluent in the Japanese
language, but at the very least I do expect you to have a
minimal--albeit vague--grasp of the language; just enough
to be able to navigate the menues and action buttons and
the ilk, or to be able to do remedial tasks such as buying
Monomates and Moon Atomizers from the local shopping
district. Most importantly to be able to select missions
from the Mission Counter.

 If you have trouble navigating menues in the game, please
reference this page that will translate them into English
for you:

  phantasy-star-portable-2-english-menu-translations/

 Also, if you're truly interested, please feel free to
visit and contribute to the English-speaking Wiki at:

 Or if you can understand Japanese on some level, there's

============================================================
                  WRITING STYLE OF THIS FAQ
============================================================

 I'm going to be giving a basic overview of all 10 Story
Chapters, plus the additional 3 extra chapters of PSP2's
Story Mode. During the Multiple Choice sequences, I will
help you make sure that you get the answer right by not only
providing which answers you should choose but if they're the
one [UP] or [DOWN] in the multiple choice window. This guide
is covering the multiple choice sequences that ARE
REPEATABLE. Meaning, while there are multiple choice
sequences that do appear in cutscenes in the city between
missions, for the most part I'm going over the ones that
appear in CUTSCENES THAT HAPPEN DURING THE MISSIONS.

 Much like its predecessor, PSP2 only has one of two choices
for each multiple-choice instance that occurs in the game.
As a result, selecting the right answer becomes easier and
easier.

 Another thing I will do in this FAQ is write a basic
overview of what must be done to complete the mission in
order to get an "S" Rank, and the parameters necessary to do
so in both Normal and Hard modes. I will suppliment each
chapter with some light strategic advice as well.



============================================================
           THE BENEFITS OF COMPLETING STORY MODE
============================================================

 With each successive chapter completed on both Normal and
Hard modes more goodies become available in the shops and
missions:

  * More Furniture / Room Goods become available in the
Style Shop.
  * More Music Discs become available to purchase for the
Juke Box in your MyRoom.
  * Certain Items / Weapons / Line Shields / Units are only
awarded by Story Mode Missions.
  * Increased selection in Clothing Wardrobe availability
in the Style Shop.
  * More Free Missions become available.
  * Because More Free Missions become available, by Proxy,
more Weapons / Armor becomes available.
  * Partner Cards of all characters [Except your Partner
Machine] are only in story mode.
  * Achievements that involve finishing Story Mode require
you to obviously play Story Mode.



============================================================
             THE IMPORTANT, NEED-TO-KNOW BASICS
============================================================

 As I mentioned earlier, I'm only covering the Multiple
Choice sequences that occur DURING (not BETWEEN) Missions for
the most part.

 During cutscenes, you should remember this:

  * To hastily skip ahead through a cutscene and go straight
to the next part, hold down the START button on your PSP.
Don't worry. If there's a multiple-choice question in the
cutscene, you will jump straight to the multiple choice part.

  * If you missed anything in the cutscene and are actually
trying to follow along with the story unfolding in the
cutscene, you can just as easily hit the Triangle button on
your PSP to bring up the text for you to read.

  Aside from these simple factoids about the functionality
of features in story mode, there are a couple of other
things to remember as well:

  * Like all traditional RPGs, when you're stumped and
don't know where to go, talk to everyone in in the city,
especially NPCs that have a spinning white and orange chat
bubble floating above their heads, as they have something
particularly significant to say to advance the story further.

  * The typical formula to advance the story is similar to
PSP1. You can't simply do a Story Mission and advance to the
next one. You need to break it up by doing something in the
town in between. Be it a Free Mission, going to your MyRoom,
the Cafe, the Little Wing Office. The MyShip, etc. Every
time you beat a Story Mission, more FMs (Free Missions) are
unlocked. You can tell because a little jingle of music will
play, and a notification window with the words "FM (Name of
the Mission in Japanese)" will be unlocked. To simplify, the
flow of gameplay in Story Mode should be "Story Mission >>
Talking/Do an FM/Go to Room/Little Wing Office/Cafe >> Next
Story Mission Available >> Repeat the Cycle".

  * This game has Multiple Endings. Unlike PSP1, once you
clear the game once, you can freely go back and pick and
choose what ever story mission you wish to play. So if you
get the bad ending in Story Mode, you can go back and do the
multiple-choice questions again during a mission to turn it
into a better potential ending. There are THREE endings
total. The Bad, Normal, and True Endings. Clearing each
ending will reward you a different visual unit to equip to
your line shield. The Bad Ending earns you Black Wings. The
Normal Ending earns you White Wings. And the True ending earns
you Red Wings. There is a secret "Story Points Counter" that
tallies up the number of good responses that you make in Story
mode. This also counts towards a potential good ending.
Another thing that plays a factor on the ending is whether or
not you get an "S" Rank for the Mission. Generally, for most
of the story missions (not all), the typical criterion for
obtaining "S" rank is to finish the Mission as fast as you
possibly can (Usually within 10 to 25 minutes, depending on
which mission), and to do so without dying. If you die with a
Scape Doll, you are still eligable for an "S" Rank. The
Multiple Choice portions do NOT affect whether or not you get
an S Rank for the misson, they only affect the Ending of the
game itself. So don't worry.

 :::MISSION OVERVIEW:::

   >>>>>>>>>

  This is the opening Mission. You will meet your main partner
character who will be with you for the majority of the game,
Emilia Percival. For the opening mission, you are locked in
the ruins and must find a way to get out. This is basically a
Tutorial Mission. You learn how to fight against enemies, and
must use the new player trick, the "Escape Roll" (Double tap
the Circle Button and roll out of the way) to leap over fences
and grab gate keys to unlock gates. A pretty standard hack 'n'
slash mission. Just kill enemies and make your way to the boss.
You might pick up a scape doll, which comes in the form of a
red glowing box, like all rare items. Pick it up, but bear in
mind you can only hold one at a time.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

   Finish the mission as fast as you can. In Normal Mode it's
pretty easy to do, but in Hard Mode, you more than likely have
to finish under 10 minutes or so. If this is your first time,
take your time playing the mission and familiarize yourself
with the game's controls. If you've played PSP1 or PSU, you'll
take to the controls like a duck to water. And most items have
symbols next to them in their Japanese names, so it's pretty
easy to figure out what does what.

 :::MISSION OVERVIEW:::

   >>>>>>>>>

    Meeting up with Tonnio and Rina on planet Moatoob, make
your way through the jungle towards the Karsh clan's village.
Just fight your way through enemies and make your way towards
the end of the level. You are also required to use a new
technique to get through. The Goggles from PSU and PSP1 have
been directly integrated into your character. Hold down
[L Trigger] and press any direction on the [D Pad] to enter
First Person / Goggles Scanner view mode. You will need to
use this to examine walls, rock formations, and parts of the
environment that you can crash through.
 

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

    What route you take on getting to the end of the level
definitely plays a factor on whether or not you get S rank.
The path to the end of the level is randomized. However...
there are constant occurences to let you know you're going
along the right path. Just look for these things when taking
the correct route:
   
    * The first thing you'll see are flames blocking a path.
Dodge roll past the flames, and keep going! Don't go down any
other path!

    * When you reach a stone wall blocking your path, switch
to goggle view mode with [L Trigger + Directional Pad] to
locate the weak point in the wall, and strike away at it!

    * You will eventually come to a fork in the road. One
way will be clear, and the other way will have black flames
blocking it. Do NOT go down the path with the black flames.
Stay on the clear road.

    * In the next zone after the one you avoided the black
flames in, there will be another fork in the road, with a
big stone wall in the middle, like the one you broke earlier.
Use your goggles to examine it, then break it down to reveal
an orange arrow sign pointing towards one of the paths.
Whichever path it's pointing at is the one that you SHOULD
NOT go down!! Go down the opposite way of whichever the
arrow is pointing.

    * Later on, you'll come to a fairly large cave-like room
with multiple paths. Each pathway is marked by a large flower
growing out of the ground. The flowers are Red and Purple
colored. All but one flower will be Red. Go down the path
that's marked with the Purple flower. The Purple flower is
the correct route. 
  

     If you follow these guidelines, S-Rank will be your's!

it unless you're well-defended, or else you're likely to get
smashed.

   Make your way through the mission and slice 'n' dice your way

option to follow a path either with Emilia or Yuuto. I
personally followed Yuuto's path. In my opinion, it ultimately
doesn't matter, though.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

here.

 :::MISSION OVERVIEW:::

   >>>>>>>>>

   The objective of this mission is to defend the machinery
consoles that are in the room you're currently in. A guage will
be displayed to show you how much damage the consoles have
taken. If the guage reaches zero, the console is destroyed. You
must keep the consoles from being completely destroyed to the
best of your ability. There are also switches near the consoles
you can press that will cause a force-field or a fence to pop
up and hold the monsters at bay for a little while, just long
enough for you to take out any other monsters around you. Use
this to your advantage.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

   As you probably guessed, if you successfully kept all of the
electronic equipment from being destroyed by the monsters,
you'll get an S-Rank. If they get damaged, it's okay. Just as
long as they don't get destroyed is what matters.

caught in the mix! Don't worry about defeating the guild
members! You're supposed to do that, actually. Fight your way
through to the boss at the end.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>
  
  Defeat all 23 LITTLE WING / GUARDIANS Members. Throughout
the mission you will encounter large boxes with red "X"
markings on each side. If you strike the box with your weapon,
the box will move! There's a reason for this. In some of the
hallways throughout the mission, there are some spots that
might seem like a dead end and are blocked by a large rock
wall. You must nudge a box down a hallway carefully and slam
it into the large rock wall to reveal a secret area where more
Guild Members are hiding. Check every nook and cranny and
fight your way through everyone.

   There aren't any multi-choice questions for this mission,
so you can rest easy, somewhat. However, it's time to take a
trip down Memory Lane! You will be entering a VR (Virtual
Reality) simulation into the original "FOREST 1" zone from
Phantasy Star Online! Just carefully navigate your way through
the mission and avoid all the tricky traps.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

  Score the maximum 1,000 points! You score points by killing
the enemies. Just a head's up. There's going to be some
instances where a timer will pop up and begin to count down
with roughly about one minute of time (maybe more or less) on
the clock. In order to get a full score count (which is
necessary for S-Rank), you need to go all-out and kill
everything within the time limit. So, in essence, once again
this is a "Kill All Enemies" + "Do it in a low amount of time"
Mission.

   Use your goggles to identify rubble you can break through.
Your goal for S-Rank is to destroy all 57 SEED forms, and
you'll have to investigate every nook and cranny to do so.
There is even a point where you'll have to break through some
rubble, run across stairs to another area to retrieve a
Password. Then you must take this password and use it on a
console next to a door with lasers in an "X" shape over it to
get to the SEED forms hiding inside.

switches simultaneously to unlock the door and bring down the
force-field to fight the enemies ahead.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

   Time is the parameter for "S" Rank here, but it's a total
pain to get it in Hard Mode unless you put out a lot of
damage and are over level 160+ or so. For Hard Mode, you need
to clear this mission in under 10 minutes. What I did to
shave time off the clock in Hard Mode was the first thing I
did was touch the force-field wall at the start of the
mission. Lou will mention something to the effect that
everyone needs to find switches to bring the door down. It's
because of this that you triggered an event which allows you
to leave a partner character behind to stand on a switch while
you go after the other switches. You need to touch the door
first before you're able to do this anyway.

 :::MISSION OVERVIEW:::

   >>>>>>>>>

   With the help of Yuuto and Crouch, you must guide Emilia
through the jungle and research information consoles that are
scattered throughout the area. However, you must also use the
NPC Command ability to tell Emilia to "Wait right here." and
to "Come, follow me". You do so by selecting the command at
the top of the NPC command list with the SELECT button during
the mission. You must make Emilia wait while you investigate
ahead and clear traps, defeat monsters, and ensure her safety.
If Emilia dies, the mission is an automatic fail. Basically,
this is basically a classic "Protect the NPC" Mission. Towards
the end in the zone before the boss, Emilia will be trapped
behind a fence while she researches a console. Meanwhile, wave
after wave of enemies will come to try and attack her,
including the electric steamroller traps from previous
missions you encountered. Except this time you need to destroy
them. There will be a boss fight with twin bosses at the end,
so be prepared for that. 

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

   Use your goggles, research every last spot to research at
throughout the mission until you reach 100% by the time you
reach tbe boss. The 100% completion is what earns you the
S-Rank here.

 :::MISSION OVERVIEW:::

   >>>>>>>>>

  The final fight with Kamhern. This fight is in two stages. The
second being Olga Angelus. On Normal and Hard mode, this guy is
a total monster. It's a good thing he only has two phases. It is
strongly suggested that you bring two of your best weapons; one
Light element, one Dark element. Two of your best Armors; one
Light Element, one Dark Element. And a Rifle. No matter what. I
don't care if you're a Hunter or a Force. Bring a Rifle and make
sure you can equip it.

  For the first phase of the battle, equip a Light-
Based Weapon and a Dark-Based Armor and just wail
away on him. Be sure to defend yourself when necessary
and to keep your HP up. He'll go down eventually.

  Phase two is where the REAL fight begins and things
start to heat up.

  Quickly switch off to using a Darkness-based Weapon
  and a Light-based Armor, due to the fact that Olga
  Angelus completely switches elemental alignments.
  Olga Angelus has a wide array of attacks, and it's
  best to know which one does what:

   * Olga Angelus will stare at you and his line-of-
     sight will follow you wherever you run. He will
     then Karate-chop you for a nice sizeable chunk of
     damage, sending a shockwave through the floor with
     an additional effect of Confusion. A well-timed
     dodge roll will save you, though.

   * Olga Angelus will send out two rotaing pillars
     that will spin around you and each member of your
     party individually. They will eventually cycle down
     in a spiral and explode when they come in contact
     with your body. An Area-Affecting attack such as
     Blade Destruction or something like that will take
     them out with ease, though.

   * Olga Angelus sinks through the floor and will send
     spear-shaped pillars stabbing you from below the
     floor one party member at a time. Can be easily
     avoided if you just keep running.

   * Olga Angelus stands in the middle of the
     battlefield and calls forth a black miasma swamp
     radiating from his body and spreading across the
     floor. This Miasma will drain your health extremely
     fast and kill you in about 4 seconds--if that. When
     he does this move, switch off to your rifle and
     stand as far as you possibly can on the edge of the
     battlefield and shoot away at Olga Angelus from a
     distance. When he's near death, he'll nearly stop
     doing the previous three moves I just mentioned and
     start to do this move and the next two I'm about to
     discuss. It's when he does this move, though, that
     he's at his most vulnerable.

   * Olga Angelus will back away far out of range of the
     battlefield, and spread his wings. Two runic
     circles will appear behind his wings and begin to
     fire a hailing flurry of purple energy bullets that
     will kill you just as fast as the black miasma. If
     not, faster. To avoid this, stand as far as you can
     off of the side of the battlefield. Watch on the
     radar where Olga's positioned so you know where to
     stand to be the furthest out of reach from this
     linear attack. Don't bother trying
     to shoot him with a rifle; he's well out of range.

   * The camera pans to face Olga as he raises his arms
     high into the sky with a glowing sphere of light in
     his hands. This is his "Nuke the entire screen and
     kill everybody" move. Instead of looking at him, look
     at the radar quickly and position your character's
     arrow so you know you're facing Olga as he's doing
     this. While you're facing him, hold down the "R
     Trigger" to shield yourself for dear life! That's the
     only way to survive this attack! Be prepared to use
     Dimates and Trimates to recover after this. 

  If you follow these strategies, you're likely to win the
  battle against the final boss of story mode.

  <><>::PARAMETERS FOR GETTING S-RANK::<><>

  Time-based again. Just give yourself a decent pace, and
  make your way through. If you die, it's perfectly fine to
  retry without doing the entire chapter all over again. You
  can still get an S-Rank from finishing this Mission by
  directly starting from this Act.

   >>>>>>>>>
  
   Remember, this game has three endings. And you can repeat
   story missions now to go for a better ending. Do your
   best!
