Atlus has announced that fans picking up their hotly anticipated Nintendo 3DS RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV will have a bit extra to look forward to when the game is released on July 16th. The company plans to have a generous bit of downloadable content available on launch day. While the full list of content has yet to be fully revealed, players so far can look forward to these additional pieces of content.
- Three custom looks will be available for the protagonist to alter his look by changing hairstyles. These DLC items will be permanently free for anyone to download.
- In addition to fighting in style, there will be a beneficial armor item free for the first month. The Platinum Surcoat Set offers a little bonus to stats in the early stages of the game, and will help players new to the franchise keep the upper hand. The armor will be available for free for the first month after SMT IV’s launch on July 16. After the first month, the price of the armor set will revert to $1 permanently.
- There will also be a map pack available at launch to help players gain more experience. Suitable for the early stages of the game, the new maps will help players gain extra experience to boost their characters with enemies and a collectible demon exclusive to the DLC. The map pack will be $2 at launch.
Atlus will be revealing additional DLC content as the game’s July launch date draws near.
Considering the wealth of content included in the games Pre-Order edition which happens to include a soundtrack, 176 page art and strategy book and collectible slipcase, SMT fans who pre-order the game are going to be in for a real treat when the game makes it to retail next month.
Shin Megami Tensei IV is rated M for mature and will retail for $49.99.
