Atlus has announced a handful of day-one DLC drops for Shin Megami Tensei IV. The packs, detailed below, include new armor, new maps, and the ability to change hairstyles. The set is a mixture of free, free during the launch window, and for-pay downloads. Atlus noted that more DLC is in the cards, and that additional information will be revealed closer to launch.
E3 attendees can check the game out at Atlus’ booth in West Hall (#5010), and lead character artist Masayuki Doi will be on hand from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday to sign a limited edition poster.
Shin Megami Tensei IV is scheduled to launch on July 16 for 3DS.
• 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.
