AotI: Hal Report 7, New Episode 3 Info, New Lobby Features

The 7th and final Hal report is out. There's some video footage of a couple of the new lobbies and the casino. They also show some never before seen new room items as well as new outdoor backgrounds when you move to a planet. The video ends with a preview of Episode 3 and features AN ENTIRELY CRAZY shot of something that is TOTALLY UNEXPECTED.

Another new page shows character descriptions for those appearing in episode 3. Laia, Ethan, and Lumia. Two other new ones are shown. One has appeared in the current moving comic series and the other may or may not but in either case I don't want to spoil anything.

The final new page covers some of the new lobby features and the casino appearing. In a new Neudaiz lobby you can play a lottery that has the chance of increasing your photon fortune for the day. They also show the prior mentioned method of sending items back to your common box from an intermediate lobby shop NPC.

Certain stores in Japan are also giving out prizes to lucky buyers of AotI on launch. These are the products shown above.

It looks like we'll have to wait for the next chapter of PoA.
