Retail & GFWL DLC Roundup: April 3rd, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
This week sees DLC releases for 13 Xbox 360 retail games and I cover the DLC for one GFWL game that was released too late to make last week's roundup. One of the games adds extra achievements to its list and four games currently have region exclusive DLC. I apologise for what is possibly a completely mangled translation of the Japanese text for Japanese-exclusive games, but as the site doesn’t recognise Japanese characters, this is the best that I can do. Here is this week’s list:

Asura's Wrath
• "Episode 15.5" – 160 MSP – more details here
Having lost himself to his wrath, Asura exchanges fists with his eternal rival, Yasha. In the midst of their battle, Yasha discovers a new power within him. It is in this moment that he decides to pursue their cause through a different means -- through this newfound power. But before he can do this, he must confront the leader of the Seven Deities. Don't miss this fully-animated episode revealing Yasha's defiance between episodes 15 and 16!
