Atlus outlines DLC offerings for Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster
Atlus has revealed upcoming optional downloadable content for the Japanese version of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster. A few other features found in the game are also detailed, such as the Puzzle Boy sidequest and New Game + functions.
Headlining the DLC is the paid Maniax Pack, which replaces Raidou Kuzunoha XIV with Dante from the Devil May Cry series. Also on launch day, a free Merciful DLC will be available alongside two 'cheat' DLCs: one to gain EXP and one to gain money. A week after launch, four alternate BGM packs will be available for the other mainline Shin Megami Tensei titles.
This DLC schedule is for the Japanese version of the game. The English localization, set to release in Spring 2021, may not have the same DLC offerings/prices.
