Andre's Wardrobe, Idge's Chest, & Mystery Box
According to G1Sword2 Face Book, there will be 3 new boxes after Portmanteau:

Just to leave you all with a cliff-hanger this weekend. The names of the 3 new random boxes are: Andre's Wardrobe, Idge's Chest and the Mystery Box is BACK (with some changes :))!

Unlike the other 2 new boxes coming with Sword 2, the Mystery Box will not change over time. We're focused on keeping the Mystery Box as a static item players can always purchase. The main focal point of the Mystery Box will be to give players a quick alternative to obtaining keys for the new (and current) instanced raids including: Holy Water Chamber, Chateau de Bourgogne, Secret Tower and more. As new instances become available we'll be adding more keys to this box.

We're sure however, you all are primarily interested in the new UPCs. The new Mystery Box will include a chance to obtain: Battlesmith Idge, Captian Adelina, Soho the Fighter and Iron Chef Panfilo! Hearing the complaints of our previous Mystery Box drop rates for these characters we have INCREASED THE CHANCE TO OBTAIN THESE UPCS!!! This box will be sure to please!

The three new boxes will appear on the Bazaar around the middle of June.

Emilia the Sage is intentionally NOT in this box and will be introduced separately.

Personally, I think Andre's Closet might be a more appropriate name... Anyway, the names of new costumes for Andre's Wardrobe include the following. (Links to screenshots from other versions have added.)
Note (*): These are most likely costumes whose names have been changed by G1.
  1. Romina has only 4 costumes - Crusader Coat, Dahlia, Trifolium, and Vespanola Navy Officer. Navy costume is part of Castilla patch, so it shouldn't be in v4.1. Trifolium is released later, so the most likely candidate for Schneweis is Dahlia.
  2. Rio has only 2 costumes - Bach and Primula. Obviously, Primula is the only candidate for Blaue Spiel.
  3. Claire has only 3 costumes - Fraulein, Kalmia, and De L'Ange Souriant. The older of the 2 unreleased costumes (Kalmia) is the most likely candidate for Rosacamille.
An additional note... Gilded Wolf is a hair, not a body costume. Lorch has only 1 body costume so far in any known version of the game, which is the existing Decorous Hunter (aka Survival Hunter).

Sword 2 Updates
Some more news about Sword 2 (v4.1.2). I still find the idea of having open beta on live servers really weird...

Today we received the Open Beta release candidate for Sword 2. We are closer now than we were before! [...] Yes we have decided to skip a closed beta and get the sucker on the live servers sooner.2

Some Thoughts About Face Book
So Sword of the New World now have a forum, Twitter, and Face Book. It is somewhat annoying to have game-related information scattered all over the Internet. Why can't they put all the information in one place? Then, players just need to check one site for any news, instead of loading 3 or 4 different sites.

Decentralizing information sources is just a nuisance to information-seekers.
