Now that the native PSP PlayStation Store is open for business Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is pushing downloadable games and downloadable content. Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or 2 has been out for a month and the first downloadable episode the Devil King’s Day Off is live. For an extra 300 yen ($3) get to test your dungeon making skills in five stages and face off against nine brazen heroes.
On December 18 Sony will release No More Christmas which has three stages and sixteen heroes. And finally I am Shouta will challenge your monster rearing talent with seven new stages containing thirteen heroes on January 22. Sony hasn’t announced prices for the other two episodes.
In Japan Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida or 2 is considered a discounted game with its 3,980 yen ($40) retail price. It’s also offered as a digital download for 2,800 yen ($28). Since the game is cheaper than the average SCEJ published PSP game Sony might be testing the waters to see if they can rake in some extra money with downloadable episodes. As of now Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida and Mainichi Issho Portable are the only two PSP games with paid DLC.
