    Sounds like Atlus has lots of good stuff planned for the 20th anniversary. If you’re a series fan and live in Tokyo you’re quite fortunate to catch some of this 10-day celebration.

    How’s Atlus going to make any money from the DLC if they keep giving it away FOC? (Lol)

    A sign of goodwill towards fans though for sure.

    • Irving Lee

      It’s not a sign of goodwill when the DLCs were already on disc and half of them are paid DLC.

    • Astro_labe

      It’s nice that Atlus is giving a decent amount of extraneous, aesthetic DLC to us without cost. It’s nice that they’re only creating DLC that give people the option to have extra flavor to their playthrough and not actual gameplay or story content.

      I understand them having to charge for certain things given the rising costs of game development and yet the price of a video game has remain capped at sixty dollars for how many years now? I don’t have unrealistic expectations about what developers should or shouldn’t give to gamers for free considering I have no idea what the costs accrued for this particular game was.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like new outfits, but how many of those outfit DLCs is atlus releasing? And it sucks most of them were already in the disc.

    • Skorm94

      You’re absolutely right, on-disc dlc just feels wrong but for a game with this crazy amount of content I’m not gonna complain ^^

    • Dinkus

      >most
      Every single set is on the disc, buddy. They’re all just 100kb unlock codes. DLC is the standard because consumers didn’t fight back enough against it, can’t really blame Atlus for adopting it.

    • Numbah 5

      They sadly started doing this since PQ and Shin IV which is a shame but also gives ideas for more dlc could you imagine Odin sphere dlc costumes or maybe sega costumes like Phantasy Star Online? that would be pretty cool at the same time i agree that it sucks since it’s all on the disc

  • ZEPLER

    I love the new Visual! Thats going to be my Profile Picture. :D

  • DragKudo

    The site says the Maid DLC will be free at a later date.

  • NoelHighBird
