Downloadable dungeon brings Lost Odyssey to the abyss

Instead of getting a shuffle dungeon creator like Blue Dragon, Mistwalker has a static dungeon called the Seeker of the Abyss as the third piece of downloadable content for Lost Odyssey. To enter the extra dungeon you need to be on the forth disc. With the Nautilus, dive into the sea and search around the Experimental Staff to find it.

 

Unlike the other downloadable content packs so far you aren’t immediately given items. However, hidden in the new area is the Eternal Magic Engine, an accessory that teaches immortals a skill that reduces MP consumption to nothing. The extra items are supposed to balance the challenge level. Seeker of the Abyss is a dungeon designed as a challenge for gamers who have completed Lost Odyssey. Japan has been fiddling with a thousand years of dreams since December 2007.

 

That doesn’t mean you can’t get access to the content early. I already picked up the first two packs of downloadable content off the Japanese store and they work fine with a North American build. Anyways, we shouldn't have to wait much longer for Microsoft to roll out Lost Odyssey packs for the rest of the world. If they stick to the same timeline the pre-order gift pack (Master’s Secret Scroll / extra dream) should appear on the Xbox Live Marketplace soon.

 

Strong monsters and an ultimate boss are waiting for Kaim on April 10. The entry fee is 400 Microsoft Points ($5). Jump in?

    i want to use my japanese account to download the earlier packs, but i’ve been holding off since you said they made the game easier. i have the will to stay away from them, but not the will to ignore them once they’re in my inventory.

    i hope they don’t take that DLC and make it paid content here in america like they did with blue dragon. i’ll definitely be passing on this 5 dollar dungeon. it is a very rare thing to see DLC of real value. only the shivering isles managed to impress me enough to purchase it.

    @thaKingRocka – Yeah the accessories really make the game easier, but you don’t *have* to equip them. They come with extra dreams too. I hope Microsoft doesn’t charge for the first pack, but if they do the Japanese store is always waiting for you.

    The first two DLC packs for LO definitely made the game too easy. When I let my sis play w/ the master script equipped, I told her she cheated since it literally saved her hide no less than 10 times. Kind of made the challenging boss fights moot and took half of the fun away.

    200 pts for the 2nd pack wasn’t too bad since it allows us to view any FMVs, except w/ the trouble of swapping discs… What bugs me is these things are in the game, and they made a point of locking us out of it and make us pay extra to “unlock” it.

    I wonder how fun this dungeon would be if it’s like a underwater version of Experimental Staff.. but then I don’t know how to spend my points now (got two Idol Master 3,500 pt cards :).
