Armor, a map pack and some hairstyles
Shin Megami Tensei IV will be released in North America on 16th July and all of the first print copies will be a limited edition box set, which includes a strategy and design book, as well as a Shin Megami Tensei music collection CD and a collectable slipcase packaging.
Its publisher Atlus recently revealed more information on what people should expect from it and touched upon the inclusion of downloadable content.
Well, it's official, there will be some DLC in the game and Atlus has now dished out some details on what to expect.
Firstly, you'll be able to customise the main protagonist's appearance with differing hairstyles. It's hardly a major piece of DLC but it's free so at least you won't have to pay to get your character looking good.
You'll also be able to pick up some helpful armor from the eShop. The Platinum Surcoat Set will boost your stats in the early stages of the game, which is certainly useful for those new to the series. The set will be free for the first month after the game's release and after that it'll set you back a solitary dollar.
Another useful download for the start of the game will be an additional map pack, which has been designed to give your team members a boost of experience to help you progress. There's also a collectable demon that's exclusive to the DLC within it. This pack won't be free - it's priced at $2 instead.
All of this will be available at launch and there will likely be additional DLC on the horizon for this one so expect more to be revealed upon the game's arrival in July.
