Shin Megami Tensei IV Launch DLC Details Released

ATLUS released some new details surrounding in-game items that will be available as DLC once the 3DS RPG Shin Megami Tensei IV comes stateside. We already know that depending on where you pre-order your copy, you will receive a bonus costume that seems to tout the retailer’s logo. These pre-order bonuses are not the only in-games items one can get. Below is a list of what one can look forward to.

  • 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.

Additional information for other upcoming DLC will be announced as we get closer to the July 16 release of Shin Megami Tensei IV. While the thought of ATLUS offering a lot of DLC for cosmetic purposes can turn some off to looking at what all will become available for the title, I think the idea of offering additional maps will be good for extending the replay factor and amount of time one spends within the game. Of course, fans know that this is a series that is known to give you plenty of hours of gameplay.
