Extra content in My Life as a King explained

ffccrace.jpgWe know Namco Bandai is selling extra boards in Mojipittan Wii, but what is Square Enix charging for with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Yuuryou Service in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King?

 

Answer: the other races. If you want to recruit Yukes, Lilties or Selkies you have to pony up extra dough to construct a building for them. No wonder we’ve seen mostly Clavats adventurers so far! I just imagined the Leo was King of a Clavat country.

Additional costumes will be available for Leo and Chancellor Chime too like this pirate set. Square Enix has not announced final pricing for each item, but downloadable content falls between 100 – 300 Wii Points ($1 – $3) a piece. I imagine costumes will take the lower end of the sliding scale ringing in at 100 Wii Points a piece. Buildings to recruit extra races will obviously cost more. Hopefully not 300 Wii Points per race.

    I suppose I’d end up ponying up for the extra races (depending on their importance to the gameplay, but no doubt just for completion’s sake), but I don’t think I would see myself paying for a costume. It’s like doing cash shop for F2P games. It’s not as important to be looking snazzy as to adding to the gameplay feature. Still, it worries me just how much will players end up spending towards the end for the ‘full experience’ sans costumes. Were it to amount to the cost of a regular game ($40-$50), I can pretend to justify the expense to myself, but it it starts seeping past those numbers, can I convince myself it was money worth spending?

    I guess it really depends on what you gain from downloading the other races. How does it affect gameplay? Does it actually add to it? Or are you just paying to see different races walk around your town>

    ok…Id say 300 points for all races, and only if u get like 3 or more costumes Im in for both

    LOL the sad reality is that they are actually asking quite a lot of money for these extra features… 100 points per outfit (so if you want Chime and Leo to match thats 200 points just for cosmetics!!). And the worse is 900 points!!! to get the additional 3 races :( Why so much? I’d like to get some extra races and dungeons etc but I think they are charging too much L(
