First SoulCalibur V DLC Revealed, Detailed, Dated

By litepink, 6 years ago
Namco Bandai has revealed the release schedule for the first sets of premium DLC coming to next week’s SoulCalibur V. The staggered release features additional character creation options, as well as soundtrack offerings spanning from the original Soul Blade to the PSP entry SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny and everything in between.

Each pack will contain nine new customization items and soundtrack selections from two games in the SoulCalibur saga. All three of the packs will be priced at 160 MSP.

Pack 1: Launch Day
•Nine exotic customization items including bikinis, wings and face paints
•Original music from Soul Blade and (tracks also available individually for 80MS points)

Pack 2: February 14th
•Nine fearsome customization items including breast plate, kimono and animal heads
•Original music from SOULCALIBUR II and III (tracks also available individually for 80MS points)

Pack 3: February 28th
•Nine exclusive customization items including mask, face paint, camouflage and skull
•Original music from and SOULCALIBUR: Broken Destiny (tracks also available individually for 80MS points)
Going forward we can expect more DLC to come in SoulCalibur V later, as Namco themselves stated that this is the first sets of DLC for the game. It seems like fighting games are becoming synonymous with small content offerings such as alternate costumes and what not, but the cost to expand on your SoulCalibur experience seems to be inexpensive enough. Considering SCV will already feature a robust Character Creation, these extra items seem to truly be extras; an optional way to differentiate your character or expand on your creation options. You also get to enjoy the great music of the series with these DLC packs, an excellent bonus for the SoulCalibur fan.

SoulCalibur V will be released next week on January 31st (NA), February 2nd (AUS, JPN), and February 3rd (EU). There may still be time left to take advantage of the array of pre-order bonuses, or secure a copy of the game’s limited edition.
