Atlus previews tactical RPG with a new character trailer
Atlus announced a release date for Lost Dimension, the sci-fi tactical RPG from Lancarse. It's coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in North America on July 28, and $20 worth of DLC will be available free of charge for two weeks after launch.
The DLC includes 9 in-game character costumes (like the Marco Kitty costume pictured below), 12 PSN avatars, a map set with an additional story, and 3 DLC quest sets that vary in difficulty.
There's also a new character trailer that introduces the first three members of S.E.A.L.E.D. and their psychic powers.
More info on the DLC from the press release:
The character costumes are varied new ways to tactically kick ass in Lost Dimension, ranging from Toya's dapper suit to Mana's superheroine outfit, and everything in between! The costumes are cosmetic only and provide a lighthearted change to the battlefield (until of course it comes time to erase Kitty Marco from existence).
The free PSN avatars represent the 11 heroes and heroines in the game, as well as a special avatar for the game's villain: The End. They have no bearing in-game, but now you can represent your favorite squad mate or extraterrestrial hellbent on destroying the world across all of PlayStation Network!
The three quest DLC add an extra mission to each floor. The missions don't provide much in the way of EXP or EN (Energy, a.k.a. money), but if successfully completed with an S-Rank rating, players will be rewarded with a specialized item for individual character bonuses. Getting an S-Rank requires completing the mission as quickly as possible -- at any cost. The mission packs come in differing levels of challenge:
- The Emissary from the Netherworld: Moderately difficult
- The Price of Blood: More difficult
- Runaway Cause and Effect: Most difficult
Finally, there's an additional map pack called The Beginning of The End. This is a separate story that takes place in an entirely different location; there are five missions in total, but it explores the creation of the game's central Pillar and goes into the history of the 11 heroes and heroines inLost Dimension.
