Shin Megami Tensei IV came out in Japan today and it launched with downloadable content. Some items like the silver spectacles, honest person’s barrette, and Lucifer’s fighting spirit (the red and blue eyes) are freebies.
There is also a samurai costume designed by Shin Megami Tensei lead Masayuki Doi, which costs 100 yen until June 10 when the price goes up to 200 yen.
The most interesting item is the Hell Incident Level Program. When you die in Shin Megami Tensei IV you end up in the River Styx and Charon can resurrect you. Atlus created a funny back story about why Charon bothers to do this too. If you keep dying in the game it’s probably because you’re under leveled and if you purchased the Hell Incident Level Program for 250 yen Charon’s faceless bureaucrats will help you level up faster. Not directly, of course. They guide you to the town where people go after they die. There you can fight demons that drop items that give you experience point boosts. The DLC pack also unlocks Oread, a fairy class demon.
