As of November 11, 2012, the PSUPedia and its affiliated wikis have made the transition to read-only mode. While edits can no longer be made, we hope you will continue to enjoy the data collected by the community for years to come!
From The PSUPedia
Heya, I'm HiroT, your run of the mill college gamer. I was a part of PSUtopia's dev. staff, but DreamXG seems to have lost interest. I'm a relatively light gamer during class season, but when I get free time, I enjoy a good grind.

|Soon to be made!|
PAs are essentially my reason for playing PSU. AotI's expanded combat system further augments my love for PSU's PA setup. In fact, I spend so much time leveling my arts that I end up soloing boring missions instead of leveling my characters or hunting things. Now until PSUpedia supports sortable wikitables, I think I'll leave this section alone.

Below is my latest project, a complete rewrite of AxelgearVII's server switch guide.

How to Join the Japanese Servers
Step 1: Importing AotI
It should be obvious, but before you start, you have to have the software! You'll need to import the game online.
Once you finish installing the program, you'll need to set up the JP IME in order to progress any further. Here is a walkthrough for activating and using the JP IME.
Step 2: Creating an Account
This is where most potential players have trouble. Head on over to the JP PSU account page.
1st page: Click on the red button.
2nd page: Hit leftmost button.
3rd page: This is the User Agreement, hit the left button.
4th page: Input your email.
5th page: This is the email confirmation page. Check the email account that you registered for a mail containing a verification link.
6th page: This page is a bit tricky. You'll have to have a basic understanding of Katakana and how to use the JP IME.
- First box: Last name, First name. In English
- Second box: Last name, First name. In Katakana.
- 3rd box: Zip code
- 4th box: Address
- 5th box: Telephone number
- 6th box: Birthdate. (Y/M/D)
- 7th box: Gender. Left is Male, Right is Female
- 8th box: Choose 3 Usernames in English. The 1st is your primary want, while the others are alternatives. All boxes must be filled in to continue.
7th page: Confirmation of information.
8th page: Tells you if your desired Username was available.
Congratulations! You've successfully finished creating your account.'
Step 3: Registering your copy
Look around inside of your game box for the Serial key.
- Once successfully logged in, click the first button you see, it will bring you to a user agreement page.
- Hit the first button to continue.
- The next page is where you enter in your game key. Click on the first button to continue.
- The final page validates your key.
Congratulations! You have activated your account. You are now able to play AotI offline.
Step 4: Billing
You're almost there! This is the final step.
After logging in, click on the 2nd button you see, which will bring you to this page.
You must select Monthly Recurring, as their billing system will not accept American cards for any other subscription type. You will be brought to this page.
- 1st box - Pick card type. VISA or MASTERCARD for Americans.
- 2nd box - Input Credit Card
- 3rd box - Card Expiration Date
- 4th box - Name as shown on card.
After completing this, you will be brought to a page that confirms your information. Congratulations! You now have the ability to log in and play on the Japanese PSU servers!
Qualms about Joining?
- I can't speak the Language!
- There is a small English community playing on the JP Servers. If you are the adventurous type, try talking to some of the native JP players. They may make an effort to understand you. #Useful Links/Info
- I can't read the Language!
- The only thing you need to memorize is menu navigation and item names, which are all in Katakana. Katakana is a phonetic writing system devised for foreign words. With some practice, you'll quickly learn to associate Katakana with the sounds that they represent.
- Having to start over from scratch
- This is a viable reason to not make the switch, however, there are plenty of events that pop up complete with greatly increased exp rates.
- I have difficulty registering!
- If you still have problems after reading this guide, it would be best to seek 1 on 1 help from other importers in the IRC channel.
- Practically nonexistent. Not to say that it doesn't exist, but it's dealt with rather quickly. Cheating is looked down upon, therefore hackers would keep to themselves.
- A minor flaw that you should be all-too-used to on the NA servers. If something buggy is released, it won't take nearly as long for them to fix.
- Lag is not a consistent problem for most players running on relatively decent connections. Importers should be used this anyways.
- It's the same game regardless of where you play
- Granted, however the game itself isn't what has killed the community in online PS games, it's the service. Equipment is well maintained and the game is moderated. If the past is any indication, there will be events for years to come. The US Blue Burst servers were shut down, but the Japanese Blue Burst servers continue to receive both updates and events.
