Expandable Folklore, downloadable packs coming

The news is a little out of the blue because Folklore has been out for months in Japan under the name FolksSoul and we haven’t heard anything about them. Each pack contains four quests, a new costume and a new Folks.


Even though Folklore isn’t exactly a traditional RPG, I hope the next generation of RPGs jumps on the downloadable quest bandwagon. Idea Factory is trying the model out by releasing extra missions for Absolute: Blazing Infinity on the Xbox 360 and I love how Mistwalker has a random dungeon creator for Blue Dragon. Lost Odyssey is going to have downloadable content too, but so far only a handful of RPGs are testing the waters.

    Is that the final US boxart for Folklore? It’s tons better than the import version I think.
    BTW, it’s interesting they changed the village’s name from “Lemrick” to “Doolin” in the US version, more Irish-sounding?

    I still can’t get the random dungeon for Blue dragon since I don’t have a Jpn point card or credit card.. I’m not really too crazy about downloadable contents that cost extra, since the main games are about $50-60 a pop alrdy, import even more.

    Still haven’t finished Folksoul either, I’m so slow.. and my copy of Phoenix Wright 3 should be here any day.
