The Shin Megami Tensei IV Launch DLC Details Have Been Announced

Shin Megami Tensei IV is set to be shipped with launch DLC, in addition to the existing pre-order bonuses. Every warrior should look the part, and that’s why the launch DLC will include armour and style, as well as maps. Here’s what you will find included in this DLC:

  • Three custom looks, obtainable by changing your character’s hairstyle. These items will be permanently free for anyone to download.
  • There will also be a beneficial armour 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 be available for free for the first month after Shin Megami Tensei IV is released on June 16th. After this month the armour set will revert to $1 permanently.
  • There will also be a map pack available at launch to help players get more experience. This is best suited for the early stages of the game, and will also have a collectible demon exclusive to the DLC. The map pack will be $2 at launch, so not bad for experience and a collectible.

Additional details may be revealed about the DLC closer to launch, but it looks set to be a great addition for any Shin Megami Tensei fan. It’s more than likely that there will be more DLC announced closer to the release date, so we will keep you updated with everything. As I said above, this will all be in addition to the pre-order editions you can purchase, which includes a 176-page starter strategy guide and art book, the soundtrack CD and a collectible slipcase (which you can see below).

Shin Megami Tensei IV

If you’re lucky enough to be going to E3, Shin Megami Tensei IV will be available to play at the ATLUS stand, and the lead character artist, Masayuki Doi, will be signing a limited edition poster on Wednesday 12th June from 3-4pm! You can find out more information on the game at the official Shin Megami Tensei IV website.

Will you be buying the Nintendo 3DS exclusive game, complete with DLC? Or were you perhaps hoping for something a little more substantial in regards to DLC?
