Way back in November last year we posted the news that Nintendo was promising 3DS DLC in 2012, though there were no further details. According to a report from Official Nintendo Magazine, the starting gun has now been fired for this extra content to go on sale.

It's been confirmed that Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, the music title currently only scheduled for release in Japan, will be the first retail title to offer paid DLC on the handheld. Eight additional music tracks will be available to buy, with it being reported that they'll be available in groups two to three weeks apart. They will apparently cost 150 Yen each, which is around £1.20, and will include the following themes from throughout the Final Fantasy franchise:

Final Fantasy II Battle Scene 1 (Battle Stage)
Final Fantasy IV The Final Battle (Battle Stage)
Final Fantasy IX Fighters of the Crystal (Battle Stage)
Final Fantasy XIII Fighting Fate (Battle Stage)
Final Fantasy V Hikari wo Motomete (Field Stage)
Final Fantasy VII Cosmo Canyon (Field Stage)
Final Fantasy VIII Ride On (Field Stage)
Final Fantasy X Someday The Dream Will End (Field Stage)

If this title is ever released outside of Japan, would you be interested in this paid DLC? We'd also love to know what you think of the pricing: do you think this content represents good value for money?
